Thanks everyone who came out to our Santa Monica fundraiser at Juan and Sirinya Matute’s. We raised nearly $1,000 (in addition to the over $2000 from the KickStarter) making it a successful event. Plus the view was amazing, the food was fantastic and the attendees were the best company one could hope to have on a Sunday.

A special thanks to our sponsors: Juan and Sirinya, Pocrass and De Los Reyes LLP Attorneys, Bike Center, New Belgium Brewing and the Santa Monica Museum of Art.

    Thanks to everyone who came – and stay tuned for future meetups!
