The screening of the Resilience documentary was our first official fundraiser! It was looking more like a great fund spender there for a while but the inflow pulled ahead of the outflow and we came away with a few dollars for local programs. We've got a raffle running until the end of May so please contact us and we'll be happy to sell you a $10 raffle ticket... or more, if you want. The Sail on San Francisco is valued at $800 and, of course, if you win, you can bring some friends with you. Raffle tickets can also be purchased at the Think Round art gallery on Bush Street and from Artseed in the Presidio.
The event, which was attended by about 70 people, served three purposes and we feel it was a success on all fronts. We wanted to contribute to public awareness of ACEs, we wanted to promote the work we are doing and, at the same time, raise some much needed program funds.
And so we were please to provide the opportunity for people to see this vital documentary. We would sure like it to be much more broadly available to the general public. There is a dire need for greater awareness of the impact of childhood adversity.
We did a very brief presentation of the CSDP and as a result we made some good connections.
Thank you for attending. Please spread the word about the ACE Movement and about the work that we are doing.
