"Rockin' Around" big, gay, holiday party nets $2k+ for Napa shelters and foodbank

Got a great email in the Fruit's inbox this morning and had to share the great news:
Together we raised $2,253.80 to help the hungry and homeless in Napa County at “Rockin’ Around – a Holiday Party” on Sunday! We'll be delivering checks to both the Napa Valley Food Bank and the Napa Valley Shelter Program today in the amount of $1,126.90.

Special thanks to:
Here are a few financial facts:
  • your bids in the Silent Auction raised more than $500
  • your song requests to the "Human Jukebox" raised over $400
  • you tossed more than $100 into the "Friends don't let friends dance with change in their pockets" donation buckets
  • local businesses made more than $4,100 of "in-kind" donations (food, wine, space rental) in support of the event
Again, thank you for your support of the Napa Guerilla Gay Bar and your community. There will be folks this holiday season with a roof over their heads and food in their bellies because of you!

Watch for even more fun with the Napa Guerilla Gay Bar in 2010. Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
It's awesome to know that we can do such good at the same time as having so much fun. Thanks to Rick and the crew who organized and volunteered. I'm ready for more in 2010!
