Restaurant & Delivery Partners
Thank you to Harborview in San Francisco, Great China in Berkeley, and The Kitchen in Millbrae for providing our "gala banquet dinners" for our virtual celebration.
Your delicious dinner sets, that we delivered to event sponsors all over the Bay Area, helped make our celebration even more special. It was a huge undertaking to coordinate seamlessly on this scale (as this has never been done before) and we are grateful for you jumping on board and working with us.
And finally, thank you to our meal delivery partner, DoorDash. We are grateful for your commitment and professionalism in helping us fulfill dinner set deliveries to our sponsors.
