Facebook Places to Go: CitizenGulf San Jose at Poor House Bistro

#CitizenGulf San Jose: National Day of Action on August 25, 2010

Mark your calendars for CitizenGulf’s National Day of Action on August 25, 2010!

Citizen Effect’s CitizenGulf project will become a National Day of Action on August 25th, in alignment with the week of the fifth anniversary of Katrina. The benefit — to be promoted by Gulf Coast Benefit — seeks to help fishing families find a new, more sustainable future by providing education resources for their children.

CitizenGulf Education Program for Gulf Oil Spill Families

All ticket sales and donations from CitizenGulf Day of Action events will give families living in affected areas the extra support they need to get their children off to a great start this school year and to help ease stress on families with after school support services and activities.

The most vulnerable victims of the disaster are children. As part of our response to helping fishing families, Citizen Effect and Catholic Charities of New Orleans have created an education fund that will provide assistance to families in the form of school supplies and uniforms, as well as after school programming that includes tutoring and homework assistance, enrichment classes, recreational activities, and healthy snacks.

LOCAL HOST: Social Media Club San Mateo County / Silicon Valley Chapter

The local CitizenGulf event will be held at the Poor House Bistro, located at 91 South Autumn Street in San Jose, California 95110-2514 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm (you can stick around longer if  you like).

To register for the San Jose event, please click HERE. Your donation will go directly to CitizenGulf. We’re also accepting corporate sponsorships for the event.

Located within walking distance of the Shark Tank and the Caltrain Station, the Poor House Bistro is the South Bay’s No. 1 New Orleans-style bistro joint and features regular musical acts.

On the night of our benefit, the Poor House will feature rhythm and blues guitarist Ron Thompson and Friends. We’ll also have a short presentation by Rich Mallonee, a Red Cross volunteer who participated in the emergency relief efforts immediately after Hurrican Katrina. This is an event you won’t want to miss! Register NOW!
