The Kick Off Mixer was a smashing success with a great turnout! We were happy to meet many new faces from the community along with past and present PbP members together showing support for this year's theme. It was a jovial evening filled with food and drinks, and of course the long awaited announcement of our 2019 beneficiary partner: Center for the Pacific Asian Family (CPAF).
CPAF was a natural choice as our partner for this year's theme of Homelessness for the important initiatives in which they provide transitional and long-term housing solutions. Additionally CPAF aims to reduce homelessness by addressing the root causes of homelessness.
For more information please see our full press release announcing our partnership with CPAF.
