Dana Cappiello recently turned her Portola Valley home into a Parisian flea market for the day, raising $10,000 for a sports field that is being sponsored by the Rich May Foundation.

Based in Atherton, the foundation is named after the East Palo Alto police officer who was gunned down in the line of duty in 2006.

The fundraiser on July 16 involved more than 20 vendors selling furnishings, clothes, plants and other items in support of building the Rich May Memorial Field on Bay Road in East Palo Alto.

Ms. Cappiello, who serves on the foundation's board of directors, came up with the idea for the event for generating donations and helped spread the word on Facebook.

Some 225 people attended, shopped, enjoyed live music, and sampled food from the Rosewood Sand Hill hotel.

So where were the rest of Cappiello's carpetbagging friends from the former Page Mill Properties? Hiding out in bunkers with the the millions they got from their real estate "plan"? Sheesh, they could at least donate some of those monies to this foundation.
