Last month, ETA4 kicked off the Lunar New Year by hosting our very first Bay Area Fundraiser! The event took place in San Jose, California, at a Veggie Grill Restaurant that nestled in a corner of the beautiful Santana Row Outdoor Shopping Mall.
Marking ETA4’s second fundraiser with the vegetarian restaurant chain, the event proved to be a success from the beginning. With clear blue skies, a beautiful location and a fantastic live band playing nearby, local ETA4 friends and families dropped in throughout the day to show their support and enjoy delicious vegetarian dishes with ETA4 volunteers.
High-fives and shout outs to ETA4's 2014 SUPER Volunteers, David Giles and Thang Ngo, for bringing their large group of friends and family to the event!
As you may know, proceeds from Veggie Grill fundraisers are 50% of the total spent from all ETA4 supporters who attended the fundraiser.
Veggie Grill's Report from the event yielded the following results:
Total Event Attendees/Supporter: At least 49 (This number was based on the number of transactions, not how many people actually attended the event)
Total Amount Spent by ETA4 Supporters: $1040.80
Total Event Proceeds for ETA4’s 2015 Programs: $520.40
WOW! Many, MANY thanks to our Bay Area friends and family for showing your love and support for ETA4. This event could not have been anymore special if it weren't for you. We would also like to thank our dear friends, Stephani, Jamie, Jolene, Dana, Beaudry and Maxine (from Image to the Max), for helping our team spread the word about the fundraiser. Also, thumbs up to Jose Segovia and his wonderful Veggie Grill team for making sure that the event ran smoothly. You guys rocked! We are definitely excited to bring ETA4 back to the Bay Area in the near future.
