Annual Holiday Party and Benefit for Hamilton Family Center
by Rachel Slonicki

On behalf of the steering committee, we you to attend the OWA+DP Holiday Benefit Party. Refreshments will be provided by Cottonwood Catering. Bring a guest.

Saturday, December 7th, 2013
Open House 4:00-8:00 PM
Private home in Oakland, CA near Rockridge BART station
Judy Rowe will be our hostess.

Similar to previous holiday seasons, OWA will support Hamilton Family Center. The Hamilton Family Center is a San Francisco-based organization focused on returning families to independent living and assisting families and individuals in maintaining their housing.

This year, the Center is promoting the purchase of a gift card for a family outing as a donation to the Hamilton House Family Center. Team up to buy gift cards for Sponser an Experience that the parents and children can use- something that a family or 2 families can do together- like Yerba Buena ice skating or Movie tickets (Cinemax) or Zoo passes or Exploratorium passes. Hamilton House wants to collect the donated passes and then hold a raffle for the families.

Members who can purchase the gift cards should bring them to the party. The gift card is the gift- no additional gifts are requested. Members who do not have the opportunity to purchase gift cards in advance, bring a check to the party made out to OWA . Members who cannot attend the party, but want to contribute: Send a check to Susan Aitken, Hamilton Aitken Architects, made out to OWA by Dec 7 with a note indicating the intent is to donate to the charity. OWA will purchase gift cards with the funds raised.

Email Rachel or Esin, if you have questions. The host's address will be provided after registration. We hope that you will join us. Happy holidays!
