Sooooo it’s super last minute, but we’re throwing an impromptu fundraiser this coming Thursday, June 19th at F8 (1192 Folsom) here in San Francisco from 9 to 2! About a week and a half ago we were offered the date, so we figured what the heck! It was so much fun last year! We’ll have music, Beezus swag, and honey drink specials for you. ALL for only $5! Come get silly in the name of Beezus!
Tuesday night was our fundraiser for Beezus. Leading up to that day was a lot of running around, borderline panic attacks, and general freaking out. But with a lot of help from a lot of amazing people, it all came together! Here’s the recap:
Before the show: More running around. Spent the morning picking up odds and ends before heading to the East Bay in the afternoon to bring the car over. Getting Beezus on a Uhaul trailer was no easy task, but thanks to the genius guys at NIMBY and my super patient friends we managed to make it happen! I somehow drove Beezus and the trailer over the Bay Bridge into San Francisco without any accidents! I may have had a friend do the parking, and I might have cried a little before the drive, but I did it!
At the venue: Once we made it to F8, it was setup time! We had an hour to get ready, so my friends helped me hang all of the art pieces and put up the auction bid sheets. My friend Chris took charge of setting up the food in the back. He’s brilliant. He made pulled-pork sandwiches, honey bacon cheesecake bites, and baklava. AND we had miss Leslie bring us some fantastic home made cookies! We finally got set up just in time.
THE SHOW!: We had a blast! I was running all over the place, but over the course of the night we had tons of fun. We had music from GoNZoFuZe, Bedrockk, VitaminDevo, and Dj Alarm, delicious treats all night, laughter, dancing, art, and general shenanigans. We sold half of the art, had about 100 people come through, and raised over $1000 towards our lord and savior!
The aftermath: We parked Beezus by the bay and went to sleep for a few hours. We came back in the morning to take him home, but lo and behold the trailer had a flat! Luckily Chris and I had just gotten coffee, so we were able to enjoy it peacefully while we waited. Eventually we were able to get him unloaded at NIMBY and made it home safe. And I slept. HARD.
I am so beyond appreciative for everyone that helped. Joshua, Atlas, Jo, Chris, Leslie, Hilda, Billy, Devo, Or, Dave, Willis, Jen, Wendy, Kerri Ann, Iswari, Jon, Mike, Annie, Artie, Sam, Camille, Rafael and everyone else who made that night amazing!
