Speaking of gems of Burlingame... assuming you knew about this? https://www.gofundme.com/aida-opera-candies-continuation

There's no denying that I've finally put my money where my mouth truly is with a donation.
We all rallied for Sam's Sandwiches a few years ago to give Reno stopgap funding against business failure, and it would be a crime to deny Aida Opera Candies a like bailout.
Why is it that Burlingame's longtime Mom and Pop's are now up against impending financial ruin?

Thank you to all the Burlingame Chocoholics who've tossed in contributions so far; but I know there are more of you out there who'd like to see Aida's thrive through the holiday season, and beyond. The campaign goal has reached the 50% point--$4,965 of $10k goal--raised by 62 people in 14 days.

Day 20 of the Aida Opera Candies campaign, and it appears to have stalled.

Folks, I'm going to ask you to donate the price of 1 pound of See's Assorted Chocolates ($19.90)as a gift to keep this business alive.

Thank you.


'Will do. Thanks Pat, for doing this, I didn't know a campaign was going on... Is this a Pat "in house" campaign, or was this in a newspaper (or both?)

Scroll up to 1st entry from Occasional Contributor(Sept. 17)....This is where I 1st heard that Aida's launched the campaign which I started pushing that day with a contribution, because like Sam's Sandwiches,I think we can ill afford losing the Moms and Pops of Burlingame.
