Alameda Theater to Give $5,000

The tally is in.

We don’t know how many romantic embraces there were after the Alameda Theatre & Cineplex hosted its February 13 gala “Valentine’s Rock,” but we do know how much money was raised for local and other charities: $5,000.

And on April 2, these funds will be given to the Alameda Education Foundation, the Boys & Girls Club of Alameda and the American Red Cross Haiti fund. 

Set to accept the donations are George Phillips, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Alameda and Ed Kofman, president of Alameda Hospital Foundation. 

According to the theater, major contributors to the event included R & B Cellars and Pappo Restaurant.
