Volunteering Fun

Volunteering Fun!!

Saturday was my second foray into volunteering for One Brick. My first event was a week ago at the South San Francisco Walk for Light the Night. Light the Night was a special event because it’s one of the fundraisers for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and is one that any survivor can participate in at any stage of their recovery. Seeing the balloons lit up in the darkness was chilling and just hit you right in the heart. Being able to take part with such an event especially with my mom and Marc being survivors, was so meaningful.

This weekend though, I bartended at Oktoberfest. WOW!! Talk about a fun event. Other than your hardcore German-Americans (complete with men in Leiderhosen and Frauleins in their frockery), it was just a bunch of people there to get drunk and listen to German music. Bottom line though…fun!! Best people watching so far for the month of October!! Will definitely be back next year both to attend and to work with One Brick again!
