Thank You to the IRC SF Advisory Committee
The International Rescue Committee in San Francisco held its second annual benefit for refugees resettling in the Bay Area on September 28, 2010. Ammanuel, a refugee originally from Ethiopia, shared the story of his journey from his homeland to the Bay Area with more than 100 guests. Guests also enjoyed music, hors d’ouevres, a silent auction, and South African sparkling wine.
The event raised $5000 in support of the work of the IRC in the Bay Area. The IRC in San Francisco would like to thank the Bubble Lounge, the IRC San Francisco Advisory Committee members, the auction donors, and the guests that joined us at the event.
