Great Night - Great Cause

Thank you PK-sf people,

Monday night's "Madness" fundraiser for Japan Earthquake relief raised money - ($1,500!)and awareness. And, on top of that, we kicked-off the global PechaKucha fund raising campaign for Japan Earthquake relief. We want to also thank the many RISD alums who reminded why that institution remains one of the top design schools in the world - fantastic work everyone. Notable among them was a local Pecha Kucha favorite, Joe Gebbia who not only shared his design rags (in his case butt pads) to riches story with the birth of Air B-n-B their fantastically successful venture connecting travelers with spaces -all online! He also handed-out $50 vouchers good at any AirBnB stay. Not bad. Throw in some more truely inspirational presentations and you've got another outstanding PK-sf evening. Date an theme for our May event will be announced soon - stay tuned.
