KFOG Kaboom

8:30am. –
As sunlight warmed up my bedroom, I sipped on my Peet’s Coffee & contemplated my tasks of the day. And after my morning shower, I jumped on my bike and raced to the James Howell Studio. And upon arrival to the yoga studio, I was greeted by my Saturday morning yoga students. Shortly after wards, we began our weekly yoga class.

2:00pm. –
As I biked towards Pier 32, excitement ran through my body. Why? Because after seven years of being a V.I.P bartender for KFOG, I knew what was about to happen – the 15th Annual KFOG KaBoom!

KFOG’s VIP Clients were presented with “free cocktails at the bar:
1. Smirnoff’s – “Cosmopolitans” – “Mojito’s”, & “Pomergranite Martinis”
2. Hornito’s – “Palomas” – “Perfect Magarita” & “Pomerita”

And to top it off – with her secret Caesar Salad recipe, traditional Italian Pastas, Biscotti, Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Fruit & Cheese Platters, my personal friend /private chef – Lisa Ruggeri Hines of Bella Luxe (the preferred caterer of KFOG’s events) went beyond the call of duty – pleasing the palates of each and every client of KFOG.

As the clients & fans of KFOG roamed the pier & licking their chops – the sounds of Los Lobos blared through the air. Check out the line up:

Although Greg cannot join us in AIDSLifecycle 2008, he has graciously pointed his sponsors in my direction. And thanks to Greg & the San Francisco Police Officer’s Association, I will become closer to reaching my $2,500.00 fund raising minimum & the San Francisco AIDS Foundation will receive needed funding . My hat is off to KFOG!
