NorCal PCA, in association with The Commonwealth Club of California presents “One Mama" with Siobhan "ShaBoon" Neilland, Founder of OneMama ShaBoon Products.

How do you overcome the death of your child? Neilland found a unique way to fill this major void by traveling to Uganda and opening herself to the love of many children, which led her to found OneMama.org in her efforts to help others live. Come hear Neilland discuss how all you need is an idea, a strategy and a whole lot of tenacity to transfer your own personal, self-sustaining technique to the professional concept of business and philanthropy.

A networking reception will begin at 5:30 at the San Francisco Club Office, 525 Market St. (2nd floor), which is at the corner of 2nd St. and Market, above the Montgomery St. BART Station.
