Entrepreneur/parents raise cash for Mandarin school

I wonder how many venture capitalists we have in Utah who also happen to have kids enrolled in Chinese immersion. If you’re out there, here’s a nifty fundraising idea featured by Fortune/ CNN:

“A group of 20 Silicon Valley VCs are taking bids for lunch dates, with proceeds going to┬áPresidio Knolls School , a startup Chinese immersion school based in San Francisco. So it’s really more about charity than narcissism, but there clearly are some bragging rights involved. And I wouldn’t even be surprised if certain limited partners keep tabs on which VCs did (and didn’t) garner high bids.”
