I wanted to personally invite you to an event I’m helping my sister throw, Una Noche Dominicana. It’s this Thursday, October 23rd at the Gauntlet Gallery on Larkin in between Sutter and Post in San Francisco. Una Noche Domincana is a fundraiser for my sister’s nonprofit, the Madres jewelry collective. There’s going to be Caribbean-inspired food from Cha Cha Cha, wine and beer (graciously donated by my employer’s company, Plumpjack), salsa dancing, and of course the jewelry! Tickets are $10, but $5 of the purchase is a credit toward any piece of Madres jewelry. I’m manning the bar, so it should be a super fun night! Hope to see you there and if you’re not in the area, consider ordering some of the Madres jewelry online. All of the pieces are made by a group of Dominican and Haitian woman and the proceeds are their income.
