great to have.
I will send you more info shortly (and hopefully a couple of pictures) - regarding the haiti relief fundraiser/personal bday party that I had last thursday night (that continued into the weekend) at the Riverwalk Bar and Grill.
I had the idea of people eating, drinking and enjoying with me on my birthday - with some of the money spent going to charity (instead of gifts and straight giving to charity as many of my friends have so generously done in the past weeks).
It looks like ~$2,000 will be donated by the Riverwalk Bar and Grill - on Roosevelt Island - to the New York Rotary Foundation - earmarked for haiti relief, as a result of the charity/bday night that we had.
The Riverwalk agreed to donate a % of all money spent at their bar and grill on the night of my birthday party (many rotarians came, ate and drank for fun and charity) - the Riverwalk was charitable and kind - they continued the fundraising on Sunday by entering the foundation - haiti relief - into a superbowl pool.. the foundation won in the pool and this added to the total $$.
