They came. They partied. And they donated money on behalf of educational non-profits! Our third annual celebration of Philanthroparty was a huge success, thanks to so many people who contributed in this effort.

Our Director of Product Strategy, Josh Williams, was our DJ (and bartender of the Shot Bar) who kept the party moving into the wee hours. Thanks to our bartenders, despite the keg running out early this year, the wine was flowing all night long. Eric Kamprud of Fat Alley Foods provided delicious delectables with a school curriculum theme. Dessert was provided by Tcho Chocolates and Mission Pie, and the caffeine kept flowing courtesy of Bicycle Coffee.

Thanks to your donations, Philanthroparty raised $2500 from our raffle and silent auction. This year Chris Walters of French Press Films was the lucky winner, and selected the following non-profits to donate the winnings to: Aim High, The School Fund, Oakland Schools Foundation, Reading Partners, Las Flores Elementary School, Faller Elementary School, and the Parish of St. Ann Catholic School. Congratulations to Leanne Waldal and Marsha Platt, winners of the instant wine cellars!

We really appreciate the love and support people have given us this year and every of our 13+ years of being in business at Hot Studio. 2010 was a big year for us and we are really looking forward to an excellent year ahead in 2011.
