Fantastic Mr. Fox Movie Sponsorship by Fog City Family Films!

We had a great time handing out hot chocolate, coffee, and herbal tea (courtesy of local coffee shop Cumaica Coffee) for the Fog City Family Films Outdoor Family Movie Night at Rossi Playground on Saturday June 20th in the Inner Richmond! We handed out blankets and mingled with the community who came out, despite the cold, to enjoy the movie "Fantastic Mr. Fox"!

We loved the atmosphere of the outdoor drive-in movie feel, as well as bonding with the community and supporting the local San Francisco Elementary School. 

Our co-sponsors William Tran, Alain Karet, and Manny Tran proudly hosted a free raffle, while Support Team members Karina Barrero & Sarah Smith,  helped hand out blankets and drinks.

Drumroll's with great pleasure that we'd like to announce the winner of the $100 Amazon Gift Card raffle: Congratulations Heidi Franczyk, who sent in this photo!

A very special thank you to the Richmond District YMCA and Clement Street Merchants Association, who made us feel extremely welcome and threw such an awesome event! We sincerely enjoy every minute of being able to give back to our community and we are so excited for possible future partnerships!
