Hello API-Cuties -

In case you hadn't noticed, it's summer already. However, you may not know that if you live in San Francisco :) What better way to start the summer than with an after-work drinkie with other API Cuties...

Please join us for the kick-off of Thirsty Thursdays Happy Hour Series for the Summer. We'll be flip-flopping between downtown SF and Old Town Oakland - both locations very BART friendly.

Inaugural SF kickoff details below:

Date: June 4th
Time: 6pm-8pm
Location: Palomino (near Embarcadero) in SF
SF Hosts: Becca
Cost: Drinks on your own expense. (APIQWTC will cover the first round of yummy appetizers - so come early to enjoy)

Based on continued interest, we'd like to continue the series into July + August. Next month, tentatively it will be July 2nd @ 6pm. Location: either Parliament or the Trappist in Old Town Oakland.

If you are interested, please rsvp here.

Cheers and we hope to see your smiley faces,

Becca + APIQWTC Leadership

Every spring, a small, dedicated group puts on APIQWTC's biggest party and fundraiser of the year. Without the help of our awesome Banquet volunteers, APIQWTC would not be able to provide scholarships for the up-and-coming leaders of our community, support other LGBTQ groups in the Bay, host social events and meet-ups, and sponsor like-minded causes that advance our rights and visibility.

By volunteering for just an hour or two during the Banquet, you can help make the Banquet more fabulous and successful.

Do you have time to help out with the entertainment program, silent auction, raffle, registration, etc.? We would love to hear from you and we will work with whatever interests and time you can offer during the event.

Please contact Joanne at joanne at apiqwtc dot org with your availability.

BAAAAH-RAM-EWE - WE WANT YOU... TO VOLUNTEER FOR THE APIQWTC 2015 LUNAR NEW YEAR BANQUET - YEAR OF THE SHEEP!!!

Every spring, a small, dedicated group puts on APIQWTC's biggest party and fundraiser of the year. Without the help of our awesome Banquet volunteers, APIQWTC would not be able to provide scholarships for the up-and-coming leaders of our community, support other LGBTQ groups in the Bay, host social events and meet-ups, and sponsor like-minded causes that advance our rights and visibility.

By volunteering for just an hour or two during the Banquet, you can help make the Banquet more fabulous and successful.

Do you have time to help out with the entertainment program, silent auction, raffle, registration, etc.? We would love to hear from you and we will work with whatever interests and time you can offer during the event.

Please contact Joanne at joanne at apiqwtc dot org with your availability.

Greetings Talented and Generous APIQWTC Community!

APIQWTC is preparing for our Year of the Sheep/Goat Lunar New Year Banquet, which will take place Saturday, April 25th, 2015 at House of Banquet in San Francisco, Inner Richmond district.

In past years, our banquet SILENT AUCTION and RAFFLE have raised funds for scholarships and causes such as breast cancer and Japan earthquake relief. This year’s funds will support QueeRoc, the AROC Arab queer immigrant-­led committee. QueeRoc aims at providing a space for Arab-­identifying lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and questioning (LGBTQ) individuals in the Bay Area to meet for the purpose of community building and resource sharing through informal exchange of experiences and knowledge as well as social activities.

We enthusiastically invite you to contribute your talents, skills and resources to our auction and raffle!!

What can I donate, you ask?
SERVICES
SKILLS
ARTWORK
GIFT CERTIFICATES
JEWELRY
HOME ITEMS
CHILDREN/PET GIFTS
and MORE!!
(Donations are tax deductible.)

If you have a potential auction/raffle item or know of any individuals or businesses that might be wiling to donate items, please contact:

Thank you for your support!

With Gratitude,

Calling All APIQWTC Pets!
Are you a cat, dog, bird, bunny, or other cutie patootie, feeling left out of the Banquet (even if you're a Sheep/Goat)? Here’s your chance to make a splash at the event anyway! Be featured on the APIQWTC Pets Pages in the Banquet Program! For a $25 donation (tax-deductible), you will gain a measure of fame and a lot of “awww”‘s!
