PROVIDING FIRST-LINE SUPPORT AND HUMANITARIAN AID TO DISASTER-HIT COASTAL COMMUNITIES.

Saturday evening March 31st at 7pm at Pasta Pelican on the Alameda Estuary, we'll be "splashing" the boat and she will be at the dock for champagne visits all evening, with dinner and live music and dancing! Here's a great chance to meet the crew, founders, volunteers and contributors who have got International Rescue Group started!

Our celebrity host will be Jeffrey Weissman. Jeffrey co-starred as George McFly in the Back to the Future sequels, he co-starred in Clint Eastwood's Pale Rider, and with John Lithgow in Twilight Zone the Movie and he has guest starred on many TV shows: Diagnosis Murder, Saved by The Bell, Scarecrow and Mrs King among others. More recently, Jeffrey gets raves as ocd winemaker Jerry Hannon in the hilarious mocu-mentary "corked!", and coming out soon he plays Mark Twain in the TV Movie, "Mark Twain in the Holy Land" and the lead in the hilarious "Nobody's Laughing" (see IMDB). Jeffrey teaches at the San Francisco School of Digital Film Making, and has taught at universities around the bay area. He's been in over a hundred stage productions, and has appeared in shows at the Renaissance & Dickens Faires for three decades.

OUR MISSION

http://internationalrescuegroup.org
Providing first-line support and humanitarian aid to disaster-hit people, using boats to deliver food, fresh water and medical supplies to help coastal communities until governmental or large-scale relief arrives.
We aim to demonstrate that a small vessel can provide real aid in post-disaster situations. It is estimated that there are 10,000 cruising boats worldwide (sources include Latitude 38, SSCA and the Cruising Association), many of these are run by couples or small crews all around the world, who can join the IRG network and volunteer to provide aid.
