Just a few weeks from becoming the most recently elected official in Marin, Damian Morgan, who won a seat on the Marin City Community Services District board by just a single vote, is seizing the moment. 

Morgan, a community activist who launched Cronkite Development (“CDI”) to provide support services to children and families in Marin City, is hosting a benefit specifically designed to raise money for CDI to provide Marin City children with real life experiences they don’t often get to have.

“Due to a lack of financial resources, many children growing up in Marin City have never been to the ocean, ran through a grove of redwood trees, sat in a boat, attended a movie at a theater with friends or enjoyed the many fairs and festivals our beautiful county offer,” Morgan says. “These activities provide a broader understanding and context of our world, and are important to childhood development, health and sense of well-being.”

The fundraiser, dubbed “Creating Connections Live,” is set for Friday, January 19 at 7pm at the Community Center. Local business have donated more than 150 items that will be auctioned off, and the likes of Piatti and Sweet Things have donated food, wine and champagne for the occasion. The event will also feature live music from musicians like the ISOJI Wizards. 

CDI is seeking $100 donations via their website for the event, as well as additional sponsors and auction donors. GO HERE for more info.
