Thank you to everyone who supported our 2010 fundraiser: East West Clicks presented by AAJA SF and Comcast.

It was an evening to remember highlighting the work of talented local photojournalists and photographers at SOMArts in San Francisco’s hip South of Market neighborhood. The event also featured food, wine and entertainment and the preview of a new cookbook featuring recipes from some of the Bay Area’s top Asian chefs.

Proceeds benefited AAJA SF’s student scholarship program as well as its grant program. As part of its commitment to promote diversity in newsrooms, the chapter is continuing its long tradition of awarding $10,000 in scholarships annually to deserving students pursuing journalism.

Local photographers generously donated their work to help support this program.

Thank you to Title Event Sponsor Comcast for their support. We also would like to thank Verizon Wireless, which is a Silver level sponsor, and PG&E, which is a Jade level sponsor.

Wine sponsors are Broadbent Selections, Bonny Doon Vineyard and Pacific Rim Winery.
