BoC Thanks & Acknowledgements
Wow! What can we say? Breakfast of Champions was an overwhelming success and The Space Cowboys would like to thank each and every one of you for coming out to Mighty to celebrate the New Year with us!
So where do we start? How about the weather? 70 degrees and not a cloud in the sky (in January??). For the second year in a row we had a permitted closure of Utah Street and the entire block from 15th to Alameda was packed with all of our favorite people. The Funktion One system provided by Funkworks for the outdoor sound stage took the block party to a whole new level and, as usual, all the DJs brought their “A game”. And while thousands of you passed through the gates over the course of the day, Mighty reported no incidents – quite a testament to the respectful, fun-loving crowd we had at BoC this year (way to go, Party People!).
We also managed to collect over 100 pounds of food for the San Francisco Food Bank with the cereal box drive that was held at the main gate (thank you to shOOey for coordinating that effort).
I want to extend a special thanks to Space Cowboys General Manager, Andrea Lundquist. Breakfast of Champions was the culmination of 6 months of hard work and coordination on Andrea’s part that began last summer with our SF ISCOTT hearing. BoC would not be the celebration that it is today without Andrea’s expertise and the solid relationships she has forged with the City of San Francisco, Mighty and the many audio-visual, ticketing, security, on-site medical, food and beverage providers that are crucial to the success of the event.
Andrea is an event manager by trade and you’d be hard pressed to find a better one anywhere on the West Coast. The Space Cowboys are very lucky to have her. Andrea, thank you for everything you do for the Cowboys and our community!
