Habitot News
Focus Groups

Hundreds of Habitot friends participated in our 2008 online Member and Visitor Survey and our staff is busy digesting the feedback we received.

We would love to hear more of what you have to say, and we hope some of you will choose to participate in one of our upcoming focus groups.

Each participant will receive a 3-month Friendship Membership to Habitot in appreciation of your time and effort. (Current members will have their membership expiration date extended by three months.)

TO RESERVE A SPOT in one of the following focus groups, please email Lauren at dassoc@habitot.org with your available and preferred dates - we are hoping to have 8 participants for each session.

Saturday, March 21st 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Monday, March 23rd 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Thursday, March 25th 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Sunday, March 29th 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

A full report on your feedback from the survey and from focus groups will appear in our spring quarterly issue of SmallTalk, when we will also outline the improvements we're planning to make this year. Thanks again for your participation in helping make Habitot even better!

By the way, the winner of the free Family Circle membership raffle for participants in the Annual Survey goes to the Wright Family.

Valentine's Day a Hit

Dozens of families bid on items in our first-ever Valentine’s Month Auction, displayed in the museum and posted on line. In this difficult economy, we are being creative about fundraising, and appreciate your support. Thanks to donations from Kimpton Hotels, Bellissima Day Spa, Garibaldi's, Digs Bistro, Marzano, Edible Love Chocolates, Chocolatier Blue, Magnet Boutique, Skates on the Bay, Venezia, La Note and Café Clem, we raised $766 for Habitot’s Art Studio.

We are busy planning a Mother’s Day auction for the month of May and welcome your donations of Mom-friendly goods or services that can help us raise money at auction:

• Do you have a vacation home you can make available for a weekend or a week?
• Do you have a professional skill like catering, landscaping, massage or personal
  care you could offer in an auction? (we’ll advertise your business!)
• Can you donate some time as a professional athletic trainer, career coach or
• Can you donate a beautiful bouquet, a restaurant gift certificate, or time at the
  local gym?
• Would you be willing to solicit auction items from local businesses?

Please email Lauren at dassoc@habitot.org or call her at 510-647-1111 x 31 if you would like to help. Thank you!
