MSABC Wine Tasting Fundraiser - May 6, 2012 in Brentwood!

Image
LET’S BEAT CANCER!


Please join us at the newest consignment shop in Brentwood, Diva on a Dollar (3850 Balfour Rd., Suite N, Brentwood), for a wine tasting event with raffle prizes to raise funds for my 10th Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk.



Sunday, May 6, 2012
11:00 am – 4:00 pm


WHY:
I walk in honor of my aunt, Virginia Saguing, and in memory of my cousin, Natalie Nobida, and a wonderful woman, Maureen Withrow.





I have a $3,900 fundraising goal. If I reach that goal, this non-runner and loather of cardio will commit to my first Team in Training event and raise the same amount in 2014 (post 1st baby) in honor of my loving grandfather, Victor Manzano, who has been living with leukemia for years and now has Stage 3 cancer.

I want to put a end to cancer! Read more at http://bernadettemanzano.blogspot.com/2012/02/making-strides-2012-towards-team-in.html

DETAILS:
Wine tasting is $10 per person and you will get to taste at least 6 different wines, if not more, and also receive a BONUS …

Private Party Vendor from Brentwood, Met in SF

As per my Yelp review below, I just realized that Juanita and Tako Bar Catering was from Brentwood after reading a local person's page on Yelp. It's funny because we both worked a private event in San Francisco yesterday. I'm surprised that the conversation of where were both located didn't come up! Regardless. I definitely recommend their services.

How funny that Juanita is also from Brentwood. I arrived at a private party where I was to assist and bartend at in San Francisco. Juanita and her team were cooking away and it smelled fantastic. They made this watermelon and strawberry juice that was amazing! It was a big hit at the party and if you add some vodka or Malibu Rum, it’d add a little something special to it. The party hosts had plenty of wine left over because people just loved this juice!

I had a pupusa for the first time. My sister has cravings for it but I have never had it. Theirs were so good, made from scratch and gave you an option of just cheese, or wi…

Officer Beats Cat vs. Saving a Life

Article - Officer Beats Cat
Courtesy of Peta


An officer was called to assist a cat that was hit by a car. Instead of taking it to a nearby vet hospital, he decides to club it to death. Given the article does not state that he has a veterinary background as well as in public service, but was it his call? He didn't give the cat a chance. Had the officer been hit by a car, he would have been rushed to a hospital. This is just crazy. I would have picked up the cat as gently as possible and rushed it to a nearby hospital. If this was my Bevo, I would rather not have the 'help' of this Officer and take care of my baby myself!


This reminds me of a summer day in Pacheco, CA in 2001 I believe. I was leaving my condo for some reason or another. In between upper units, there is an awning and a sky light. I found on my doormat a little bird, slightly breathing. I believe it was struggling to go towards the light and exhausted itself. I am so glad I didn't step on it! I gently pick…

Sign up as a Stylist!

Tonight, there is an opportunity meeting at Faz Restaurant in Danville, CA at 6 PM. Come by for more information on the company, the products, how much you can earn and meet other Stylists in the area that are working it and Styling their lives! I can't believe I am coming up on my one-year anniversary and I am proud to say that I have a team of 4. They have taken the initiative to change something in their lives for the better whether it is to gain celebrity-adored jewelry at a discount, starting their own business, earn extra income for themselves and their families, to overcome the fear of public speaking or building a tougher exterior every time you get a "No, I don't want to do a trunk show!" I look forward to continuing to motivate them.

If you or know someone that is looking to fulfill any of the above goals but cannot make it tonight, please check out this video on Frequently Asked Questions in regards to becoming a Stella & Dot Stylist. Please contact me
