Food Bank Benefit

It took a few weeks to tally the results, and ... looks like we raised about $1,150 for the Marin/SF Food Bank at last month's Food Bank benefit.  This started out as an idea, pure and simple, that I floated to the late Nick Fitch at the San Rafael Elks Club a year ago.  Nick's love for music and stature at the Elks gained immediate support for what would become the "Festival for Food."   Dennis and Mimi at the Elks picked up the torch and ran with it, setting up a full day's worth of food and activities at their beautiful Magnolia Terrace.  In order to make it a musical event, we enlisted Matine & Noa, the Marin School of the Arts Jazz Combo, the Damon Le Gall Band, La Mandanga, and Key Lime Pie to provide music for the 7-hour event.  It came together effortlessly, as all these performers were eager to offer their talents to the cause.   Who knows ... maybe we'll be able to make this an annual event.
