Thanks to Lisa for sharing this information with us from Cafe Gratitude’s weekly gratitude mailing:

Our cafe in the Sunset of San Francisco (on 9th avenue) is closing its doors in order to open the possibility of new and growing visions for Cafe Gratitude.  Our last day open in the Sunset district of San Francisco is Sunday, June 14th.

With closure of this location, Cafe Gratitude will still be operating raw foods restaurants at its inaugural SF location in the Mission, Berkeley, and Healdsburg.

The new business alluded to in the Cafe Gratitude update is a vegan Mexican restaurant (cooked foods) in the Mission .. and we’re all waiting for more news on that!

$2,299 for Animal Place!

Friday, June 20th, 2008

For some, it was just another lovely June evening in Berkeley.  For the standing room only crowd gathered at the D. King Gallery on June 17th, it was much more.  Animal Place, an animal sanctuary & education center in Vacaville, is raising $2.7 million to relocate to a larger and better space.   We wanted to do more than just hope they made it, we wanted to help, so earlier this month, we announced our vegan pizza party & boutique fun(d)raiser event.

Three weeks later, we’re pleased to announce that $2,299.30 was raised for Animal Place, and the critters like Frank, Murray and Ernie who call it home.
