SF Giants Night 2014

– by Chiye Azuma

Nearly 150 ASLA-NCC members, friends and sponsors gathered at San Francisco’s AT&T Park on the evening of Monday, July 28th to cheer on the SF Giants against the Pittsburg Pirates.  Thanks to co-chairs James Ingels and Liz Boults, this event has now become a Chapter tradition in its third successful year with plenty of fun and socializing.
