About 600 people showed up in Oakland’s Lake Merritt Park on Saturday for a fund-raiser for the 8-year-old girl who was the victim of racism perpetrated by Alison Ettel, aka #PermitPatty, the now-disgraced pot pet company founder who was run out of the industry after calling the cops on Jordan Rodgers for selling bottled water outside her home.

The fundraiser, sponsored by Bay Area cannabis companies Kind Culture, The Apothecarium and Magnolia Wellness, raised $3,120 for Rodgers’ education fund.

Rodgers also received brand-new equipment for a water stand — tables, chairs, coolers and two custom-made signs that say “Jordan’s Stand,” along with enough bottled water to generate an additional $1,600 to $2,000.

Event organizer Kind Culture donates a portion of its profits to pay for private education and college for African American children with a parent jailed for war on drugs/cannabis offenses.
