2013 Noisebridge 5-Year Party & Benefit


The fundraiser has been a massive success! It cost $30 to pay back one of the cooks for ingredients on the day of the event. The amount raised is still pending, but it is over $5,000. This figure doesn't include new ongoing monthly contributions, which will continue to trickle in.

Big Thank You to all Performers and Demonstrations!

Clown Cabaret presents a Benefit for Judy Finelli [1], tomorrow, Monday 4/1/13. Just down the street at Stagewerx, 8pm, All Ages, $10 Presale, $15 Door. Judy provided the Juggling Classes everyone enjoyed during the Fundraiser and has a wonderful evening planned with tons of top notch artists, musicians, and more! James (me) is the light and sound technician for the Cabaret.

Judy is in the process of figuring out how to teach juggling classes at Noisebridge on Saturdays from 10:30am - Noon. "Noisebridge students did very well, and I think they could learn very quickly. -Judy"
