Rain or shine, please join us for PARK(ing) Day For Partners, a special PARK(ing) Day event to raise money for the Haitian health organization, Partners in Health (http://www.standwithhaiti.org/haiti). This is event is, of course, free, but we’re asking for a donation of from $10 to $20.

What: PARK(ing) Day for Partners
When: Sunday, January 31, 2010
What time: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (or later)
Where: The Bazaar Cafe, 5927 California Street, between 21st and 22nd avenues

Bring your own musical instrument to help add to this fun-raiser. There is also a piano indoors. There will also be card readings by Ivette.

We will set up outside in the parking spot in front of the cafe — hopefully with a tent in the event of rain. Otherwise, we’ll go inside the cafe (http://www.bazaarcafe.com/).
