Wow as a jazz fan, Craig Chaquico in a small venue will be unbelievable! And its for a great cause as well!! I'd recommend getting tickets early as I can't imagine the Palm event center holds more than 400 to 500? Craig must be an animal lover?!

I can hardly wait! Let all Pleasanton students in FREE so that they can witness their parents doing a good deed for animals! HOORAY!

Hey Cholo,

You post alot and some of your contributions have good content, whether of not someone may or may not agree with you. Why do you have to be flippant about an organization trying to do good? Having an opinion is one thing, putting people down to feel better about yourself is a different matter. Maybe put your energy into doing something positive to help others?

I took Cholo's comment as sincere. Her idea is a nice one. It is good to see the people of the Valley Humane Society working to better the lives of homeless animals, and it is a good thing for children to see, (by the way, there are children volunteers at VHS.)
Cholo, were you sincere or sarcastic?

If you don't take the cake! Sincere.

Given the cost of tickets, I'm concerned that younger people will not be able to enjoy the music with the adults. So, invite them in for FREE; the shelter, animals, parents & kids will all benefit.

I'm talking win win...dudes!

The purpose of this and other fundraisers by Valley Humane in addition to continuing to fund its existing programs, is to build a permanent (they are currently operating out of a trailer) facility.

Please buy tickets!

You just posted 3 times in one day Cholo ;-)

Young kids would be bored out of their gourd. Jazz, adults standing around in cliques with kids would be crying to leave. Teenagers into jazz might enjoy it.

What a blast! Craig Chaquico rocked. He played more Jefferson Starship than jazz and it was great! His vocalist was unbelievable. I went to this event to support the charity not expecting that much from Craig. I left simply saying WOW!

Great event Valley Humane! If the rest of your "fundraising" is this much fun I WILL be there!
