The Davis-based Myanmar Children’s Foundation thanks the community for its support at our fundraising event on Oct. 6, “From Yolo to Myanmar with Love.” Thanks to Davis City Council member Lucas Frerichs, and Stacie Frerichs, who opened their home to more than 250 guests who enjoyed a fabulous evening of food, drink, musical merriment and authentic Burmese culture.

Special thanks go to our Golden Rock sponsors: Beth Erickson, Max Harrington, Marilyn Schiveley and Andrew Bucchiere, Sithu Tun and family, Mermaid Sushi at the Davis Food Co-op, Daw Aye Than, Lynne and Randy Yackzan and the New Home Company.

We also thank Silver Pagoda sponsors: Jennifer Anderson and Doby Fleeman of Davis Ace Hardware, Jim Gray and Robin Affrime, Dave Harrington, Paul and Kathleen Hart, Dan Ramos, Bill and Nancy Roe, Bob Schneider and Liz Merry, Marty West and John Whitcombe.

Additional thanks go to many volunteers who helped the day of the event, including the Davis College Democrats, and Inle Lake sponsors as well.

We greatly appreciate the contribution to the festive atmosphere by these Yolo County vintners, breweries and businesses: Capay Organic/Farm Fresh to You, Ray Merlo at the Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg, Davis Local Firefighters 3494, Trader Joe’s, McHenry Vineyards, Vini Wine Bar, Sudwerk and the Davis Food Co-op.

Thank you to the newly formed UC Davis Burmese Student Association and Swe Swe Win, UC Davis Humphrey Fellow, and Yolo Mambo for fabulous music. This was also a zero-waste event, with the help of Lynne Nittler at the Cool Davis Foundation.

Proceeds from this event will build a girls dormitory (for 50 schoolgirls!) at Nget Pyaw Daw Monastic School in Myanmar. Sixteen travelers from Davis will depart for Myanmar at the end of October to tour the country and deliver funds and supplies to various monastic schools.
