WOW! If you did not know, the Santa Cruz Small Business Community might be one of the most incredible communities ever. When I reached out to my fellow small businesses and said, “I want to celebrate 5 years of Yoso, but most importantly I really want to raise awareness and funds for the Katz Cancer Resource Center,” I could not believe how many of our local small businesses jumped right in and/or heard about the event through the grapevine and said, “what can I donate? Count me in!”

My five year old daughter Marley caught me crying! I was sitting at my computer this past weekend working on our event and had another raffle prize email, and then another raffle prize come in after that. As I updated the spreadsheet of the businesses that have donated, I felt a sudden rush came over my body of gratitude for the overwhelming amount of support our biz community has shown Yōso as the raffle donations keep flowing in. ALL because they want to support an incredible community celebration and they believe in honoring and supporting Katz Cancer Resource Center of Dignity Hospital. Before I knew it, my computer was closed and I was taking a moment to just let my tears of happiness and appreciation flow out of my body. Marley in the meantime was playing in the curtains with the camera. I ended up finding about 20 pictures of myself on the phone…thanks kiddo.
A HUGE THANK YOU to the Coffis Brothers and our collaborative sponsors!
