Just $375 Will Get You Into the Japanese Tea Garden Come September 15th: Party for the Parks

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

And I thought $7 was too much… Anyway, the coming Party for the Parks will be:

“A civic celebration to raise funds and gather friends for San Francisco’s parks and recreation programs.”

Sweet. And who might those friends be? How about them honorary co-chairs:

“Gavin Newsom, Art Agnos, Willie Brown, Frank Jordan, Dianne Feinstein (yes, DiFi!), Gina Moscone, and the Consul General of Japan, the Honorable Yasumasa Nagamine.”

You are so totally there, for as little as $375. Or heck, just cough up some coin and become a Sponsor yourself.

See you there!
