Project Open Hand

Shopwars is here!  An event where local Bay Area businesses compete for creative recognition for a good cause!  The participants received a blank toy to customize as their heart desires.  The voting party is this Friday, September 25th, 2009 from 7:30 – 10:00pm and we need your help!  We need you to come to the gallery and vote for the one that tickles your fancy.  Did we also mention that this is a charity event?  A percentage of the sales of the competing customized toys will go to Project Open Hand.  As a special treat, Adobo Hobo, Brazilian Bites and Wholesome Bakery will also be on site to satisfy your appetite!  Let the party… er, I mean, the games begin!
