Generosity appreciated


I would like to extend my sincere thanks on behalf of Rhythmix Cultural Works to everyone who participated in our Nov. 8 fundraising event in support of recent Alameda fire victims.

The outpouring of community support helped raise more than $1,500 from Kathy Moehring’s performance with the Kelly Park trio and the silent auction offering designer handbags, jewelry and other items donated by local businesses and community members.

The evening began with a delicious meal served by Saboor Zafari and unsold bags were donated to the Midway Shelter of Alameda.

Extra big thanks go out to everyone who donated to this effort: Julie VanBuhler, Ginnie Chambre, Kathy Moehring, Irene Kudarauskas, Carol Ginn, Jo-Lynne Lee, Marie Gilmore, Ro Shoo and Cyndy Wasko.

We are also grateful to the following Alameda businesses for their generosity: Whales & Friends, Julie’s Coffee and Tea Garden, Alameda Ballet Academy, Starbaby Studio, Starland School of Music, Michaan’s Auctions, Alameda Civic Ballet and To Herb with Love.
