HuffPo: Now San Francisco Truly Has a ‘Reason To Party’
Press Clipping

San Francisco is not a city that needs a formal excuse to let loose and have a good time. A growing local organization, however, is providing the community with a feel-good cause to rally, err, rather party behind.

Some of the 200 audience members are busy pushing social change as well. Arsen Ari Kalfayan, who by day runs business development for cloud labor start-up CrowdFlower (formerly called Dolores Labs), co-founded a nonprofit called Reason To Party that throws affordable fundraiser parties for a variety of causes, from an AIDS hospice to the San Francisco Food Bank. Kalfayan’s parties raise thousands of dollars from 20- and 30-somethings who normally couldn’t afford to attend the fancy black-tie fundraisers held by more traditional charities.
