Well, this certainly rocks. Gina Pell, Internet-y type and founder of Splendora, just started a brand spanking new non-profit, Care Through Action. And their first event, happening next Wednesday, is a fundraiser for Darfur victims. The benefit will be held at Frisson (mmm!), and there will be an exhibition of photographs by noted photographer, Alissa Everett. And sure, a few of you might find the dinner a bit on the pricey side (at $200 -- not bad at all, really), but the cocktail reception that follows is a scant $25 (the price of a cab ride from the O.R. to downtown SF!) Plus, all proceeds (after costs) will go to Friends of the World Food Program, which will benefit suffering peeps in Darfur.
What's more, why not be bold and invite with you that special someone you've had your eye on? Because: Darfur do-goodery + fancy restaurant = having breakfast together come Thursday morning, if you know what we mean. And we think you do.
