TOPH ONE, longtime DJ and friend of most people in SF was seriously injured in a hit & run accident last week.  The community is coming together for a benefit at SOM this Sunday (100% of proceeds will be donated to Toph).  We’re wishing Toph a speedy & complete recovery!

SOM. 2925 16th St.

Please join us Sunday January 22nd:
• $10-$20 Donations will be collected at the door (nobody turned away for a lack of funds), of which 100% will go directly to TOPH.
• SOM is donating 50% of bar sales.
• All of the DJs are donating their talents (so buy them a drink!)
All to raise funds for our comrade who has been dealt a serious set back.

Other ways you can help:
• Donate any goods that can be sold for a “silent auction” during the event.
• We need volunteers to collect donations at the door.
If you have any other ideas please contact us at:

If you can’t make the event but would still like to help, please spread the word by sharing this on your facebook page, tweeting or inviting your friends!
