Did you know that TONIGHT is one of the most important High Holidays in Jewish history - Yom Kippur. Your timing is terrible -- would it kill you people to look at the calender?? Jews will be UNABLE to participate in your activities. Its bad enough bad that the merchants of downtown Pleasanton have few items for Hanukkah. I for one am upset and your thoughtlessness will be remembered. Sp much for culture equality!!!

I have donated many pair of glasses through the years to support one of your projects. Should I just say Never Again.

Audrey, the date selection wasn't done in malice or to be mean spirited, your response on the other hand is mean spirited. Refusing to donate to a worthy cause because of an oversight on the fundraising committee's part is just mean.
Happy Yom Kippur to you anyway.

I guess that the lions club forgot to clear this event with every resident within a 50 mile radius, OOPS, lesson learned for next time!!! Have a happy Yom Kippur in Danville! I'm expecting to have a great time tonight in my home town.
