Yesterday we hosted our first annual RODATHON.  This open roda was a fundraiser for our batizado that is coming up in two weeks. The roda was held at Dolores Park in San Francisco on an unusually sunny day.  What can I say? It was a huge success! We had an amazing number of capoeirstas that came from all over the Bay Area to support. The energy was solid, music on point and, yes, we raised a lot of money!  Berimbaus were given out to the capoeiristas that raised the most money. In the beginning we were only going to give out one to the top student but we had three students that did such an amazing job that we had to give out 3 berimbaus!

Congratulations to our top fundraisers!

First Place: Rebecca Calisi  Second Place: Todor Tzolov  Third Place: Laurette Garcia

A big thanks to everyone in coming together in this fundraising effort. This is proof that grassroots fundraising is as strong as ever!
