Lend a Hand (Dessert First -- Project Open Hand)
Hey kids, here's a chance to do your part AND get your grub on. Project Open Hand is having their annual "Dessert First" event on February 13th. We heard about this after friends of ours attended last year, and decided we just had to go and check it out for ourselves.
Dessert First is a five year old's dream. A five year old with a relatively refined palate, but who's keeping track? You get all kinds of dessert from all sorts of fancy schmancy restaurants, plus you get hors d'oevres and drinks. This year's event is at One Market, but it changes every year.
The best part? 100% of the proceeds go to benefit Project Open Hand, so you get to help the homeless while shoving tartlets in your mouth. And since it's the day before Valentine's day, you can take your honey and they'll be all impressed leading to some action for you. Tickets are $75 in advance and $100 at the door. But you can use this romantical evening as a big fat tax deduction (charity and all) so everyone wins.
Let's go over this again: lots of dessert, drinkies and tasties, helping the needy, getting yourself laid and a tax deduction. If this doesn't get you to help the homeless, then I give up.
So please go. I'll see you there.
