And we're live... a hot pink dress, bright yellow tights, teal converse and I'm ready for Master of the Funk! Master of the Funk is a competitive spin on the traditional host committee for the annual R.O.C.K. benefit - Funk Out with R.O.C.K..
R.O.C.K.: Real Options for City Kids is a nonprofit youth development organization focused in San Francisco's Visitacion Valley neighborhood. ROCK offers sports and fitness, community service, learning enrichment, leadership training and outdoor adventure programs for girls and boys ages 6-17 that live or attend school in Visitacion Valley. Serving over 350 kids a year, the mission of ROCK is to nurture healthy development of children and provide opportunities to those who might not otherwise have access.

The fun: Check out the YouTube Video below to see all the Candidates in their funk gear. Click here to buy a ticket or donate to the organization (tax deductible)- the candidate whose picture you choose to donate under is the one you want to win Master of the Funk. As donations roll in, there will be a funk-o-meter where you can see total donations and who is in the lead to be crowned Master of the Funk. Of course, I'd like the votes, but...should you choose someone else, I won't be too disappointed. This is a great cause and one with which I've been involved for the last two years.
