Thanks to those who joined us in raising a glass to Jeannie on Sunday, February 27, 2011. We successfully raised funds for the legal advocacy program of the Asian Task Force Against Domestic Violence (ATASK), that will be used towards meeting our goal for the recently-awarded challenge grant by The Theodore Edson Parker Foundation.
