PbP SF’s Volunteer of the Month for July 2015 – Mimi Xu

Project by Project SF’s latest Volunteer of the Month recognizes an individual who exceeds expectations and brings a creative flair to the team. Please join us in congratulating Mimi Xu! In her first year with PbP, Mimi has been a great asset to the events team. She acts quickly and fully takes ownership for any task that is given to her-- finding happy hour locations, researching party rentals, helping to plan our annual winery tour, and many more. Mimi is great about keeping her director informed on her progress and summarizing her findings so that it's easy to make a decision. Recently, Mimi went above and beyond by representing PbP at KSW's Dumpling Wars event. Mimi and team worked 15 hours over two days shopping, caramelizing onions, prepping the filling, wrapping dumplings, and then cooking and serving 400 dumplings to hungry guests at the event (all of this after running the half marathon!). Mimi was a significant contributor to our team winning the audience choice award, as she came up with the creative, delicious recipe that everyone loved (french onion soup dumplings... mmm...).

Thanks for everything, Mimi! We're so lucky to have you in our family!
