Bamboo and Tikis recently donated tropical décor and tiki masks to the Granite Hills High School Surf Team. The Team held their island-themed year-end banquet recently in the DreamCatcher at Viejas where Bamboo and Tikis' tropical decorations were featured. The Surf Team holds an annual banquet to honor the students excellence both in and out of the water. Of course, a tropical theme was appropriate for the event as so many of the Surf Teams values are based on the ocean and the cultures surrounding it.
As news from Japan continues to dominate our news scene, most of us yearn for a way to help the innocent victims of the tragic Japanese earthquake that resulted in a fatal tsunami, enumerable gas fires and a threatening nuclear disaster. However, as we are thousands of miles away and most of us are safe and sheltered from any impending aftershocks, alleviating the situation seems almost impossible. Here are some organizations that are currently accepting donations to help the victims of the Japanese earthquake:
Bamboo and Tikis appreciates the community in which we operate and will happily help out when and where we are able. That is why when Volunteer San Diego staged its 2010 service weekend this past October 8-9th, we were happy to help with one of Harmonium’s seven Serve-A-Thon projects.
Six years ago some small business owners decided they wanted to help create awareness for some very good local yet internationally known artists. Thus, in 2004, Art Around Adams was born in the North Park and Kensington neighborhoods of San Diego.
This year, Bamboo and Tikis participated in this unique San Diego art showcase. A venue was set up to display our eco-friendly bamboo designs and visitors were encouraged to ask questions about green backyard options while enjoying free beverages served from our bamboo tiki bar.
Every industry show, we always do drawings for Tiki statues, gift certificates or our signature Tiki bar. This past Spring Home and Garden show in San Diego, Chuck and Sheri Newton were the lucky winners of our Bamboo Tiki Bar!
Here's what they had to say.
Q: Why did you attend the Home and Garden Show?
A: We had just closed on our new home and we wanted to get some new ideas about what we could do as far as decorating the place. This was the first Home and Garden show we had ever attended.
We recently had the opportunity to work with a great organization called "Rebuilding Together San diego" who's theme is "neighbors helping neighbors."
Their Mission: In partnership with volunteers, donors and organizations, Rebuilding Together San Diego revitalizes homes and neighborhoods for low-income homeowners and communities in need, especially the elderly, disabled and families, helping them to live in warmth, safety and independence.
