You all know us as a caterer for beautiful weddings, elegant galas, any and all types of parties. But, did you know we are also very involved in community events and fundraisers? Over the years, we’ve chosen to partner with many non-profits, schools and other wonderful causes in and around our beautiful Bay Area. In 2013, we were proud to be a sponsor of Oakland Local’s Hack The Hood event, where youth were honored for their commitment to learning about using computers to their advantage and getting ahead in the business world. It was a heartwarming event and ceremony. We were so proud of the “kids” and could tell they had the support of every person in that room. Heading across the bridge, for the past 3 years, we have been a sponsor of the San Francisco Green Film Festival. This annual event has grown into a week-long collection of small films and gatherings. Their common goal is to educate as many people as possible on how to help our planet be a safe, non-toxic world. Check them out at www.sfgreenfilmfest.org and try to catch a film next year. You’ll be enlightened on the subject of living a healthy life that in turn creates a healthy world.
We won’t bore you with all of the causes we have supported in 2013, but two that really stand out are the Sequoia Nursery School, www.sequoiakids.org, and Teen Challenge, www.teenchallenge.net. The Sequoia Nursery School Auction and Fundraiser was such a feel-good event! It’s 100% for the kids’ education, community and future. The parents put together such a fabulous event that we want to be a part of it again next year! Those kids are going to be quite a force when they’re running their own businesses in Oakland! Teen Challenge is the organization that we donate food from events to. They do amazing work with teens and we are happy to help feed those hungry kids as often as we can. We feel that anything we can do to help needy causes in our community will result in a solid foundation for those they serve.
Thank you all for supporting us this past year so we can support these and more worthwhile causes.
Happy Holidays to you and your friends and families!
Love, Your Blue Heron Team
