Fundraiser for Local School a Success

Jefferson Fundraiser
Jefferson School Fundraiser

On June 5th Emmett Eiland’s hosted a Fundraiser party for Jefferson School, a local elementary school in northwest Berkeley. Not only was Mamas, Papas, and Tapas a blast (it featured live latin music, tapas and salsa dancing), but the silent auction raised over $20,000 for the school.

With state budget cuts in effect and more on the horizon, funding for schools like Jefferson is more important than ever. The money raised will help pay for Jefferson’s literacy program, after-school program scholarships, and PE supervision during recess.

“Without this event many such programs would have to be cut from our school,” reads the Jefferson PTA newsletter.

Emmett Eiland’s would like to thank everyone who attended this special event and made it such a success.

    2012/08/01 11:29:40 PMI often put on my personal mix of relax meodly sounds (not the musical ones so much a the nature sounds) and then start up the gregorian chants I have in my iTunes. If I do it In that order the RM sounds will continue to play. Problem I have with the music choices u have is the short sample repeated ad nauseum; it’s easier I listen to a repetitive sounds like waves, wind or rain that is looped, but with actual music I want a progression toward an ending resolution, not endless looping of a very short musical phrase. If there was some way for you to have a very long-playing musical thing like chants etc, over the looped stuff, I’d love it (I particularly like the Benedictine abbey choirs at muenster schwarzach and Santo Domingo). But please don’t program out of the app my current ability to mix your sounds over my tunes. Great app! When I listen to it al night, I wake up mostly pain-free, chipper, feeling rested;Without, I wake in great arthriticPain in knee and hip and wanting more sleep.
