Master of the Funk

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 Competition: Bring in the most donations from combined ticket sales and monetary donations. Whoever has the most donations on April 9th, 2008 at 11:59pm is crowned, MASTER OF THE FUNK!

The Event: Funk Out with ROCK
Date: April 12, 2008
Time: 8p-2a
Location: Rockit Room in San Francisco, CA
Live Band, Silent Auction, Raffle
Benefit Goal: $15,000

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.

Hey paige!
I see that you have accpeted Darden invite and congratulations on the same. I was going to ask if you came for the Day@darden and noticed your previous post. I hope you had a great time. Its great that you do blog and I hope you continue blogging when you are here. You will have a great time in spite of the work load. I will be in SF on a "sell day" this weekend but they I do have a packed schedule. However I do recommend (if you have not already done so) contacting other admitted students and taking time to get to know each other. Good Luck!
