Three locations: Pizzaiolo in Oakland, Gioia Pizzeria in North Berkeley, and Bi-Rite Market on 18th St. in the Mission (SF)
Come spend a little money on something sweet (or savory). In fact, come prepared to spend a lot! We want to make big bucks for our brothers and sisters in Haiti, so our fundraising goal is $7,500. Can one little bakesale help make a difference? We think so!
All of the money we raise will be donated to Dr. Paul Farmer’s partners-in-health (PIH).
