What Happened At Grouchy John's Community Drive Event Last Night

Whew! We're still recovering from last night's Community Drive Event here at Grouchy John's Coffee Shop, but we wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who helped make it a real success.

First, a summation: While the raffle tickets are still being tallied, it's clear we raised several hundred dollars & numerous crates of supplies for the Clark County School District's School/Community Partnership Program. Also, we overflowed the Threesquare barrels with groceries & non-perishable goods. And the United Blood Services Bloodmobile was swamped with donors, even having to stay an hour-and-a-half late to try to take everyone's precious gift of life!

Second, a thanks: Our participating vendors really stepped up, from Great Bao's wonderful pork tacos to Tuff Cookie Bakeshops delectable cookies
 to Nosh Bar's wholesome & nutritious samples to 702 Salon's funky face-paints & hair-stencils, we could not have asked for better partners for our Community Drive. Oh, and special thanks to Mr. Miyagi for providing the music!

And we can't forget all of our generous friends & customers who contributed both donations & prizes, including Metro Pizza, Bread & Butter, Crepe Shack, Nevada Repertory Dance Theater, Tommy Rocker's, Black Mountain Grill, Madame Tussaud's office staff,, artist Tommy Vinci, DC Auto Tinting, and Colorado River Coffee Roasters.

Finally, to all of you who showed up, our heartfelt thanks & appreciation. We apologize that our air-conditioning couldn't keep up with the crowd, but you were all so generous & supportive that it turned our humble coffee-shop into a community home.

Thanks again, and we look forward to doing it again next year!
