Keiretsu Forum Angel Investors Fund New San Francisco Location for Wilderness Landscape Gallery

The Lough Road, Inc. Raises $650K Convertible Note

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 4, 2011) - Keiretsu Forum, the world's largest angel investment community, announces its members' investment in The Lough Road, Inc.'s new San Francisco location for its Rodney Lough Jr. Wilderness Collection Gallery. The gallery features wilderness landscape by seasoned photographer Rodney Lough Jr. and is located in a high-visibility location on One Jefferson Street in San Francisco.

After The Lough Road presented to all four Bay Area chapters, ten Keiretsu Forum members joined investors from The Family Wealth Consulting Group in raising a total of almost $650,000 of convertible note funding toward its $1 million goal. The Lough Road used the funds for building out its new San Francisco gallery space and recreating the "one-of-a-kind" ambience of its CityCenter, Las Vegas gallery.

"One of the differentiators of Keiretsu Forum is the high quality diverse deal flow," said Randy Williams, Founder & CEO of Keiretsu Forum. "We are pleased to include the Lough Road Gallery into our growing portfolio of companies."

"My clients invested in Rodney's gallery in Las Vegas in 2010, and we are proud to do it again with this new San Francisco location," said Craig Martin, President of The Family Wealth Consulting Group and a Keiretsu Forum member. "The galleries have all performed very well in the past, and the sales for this gallery's first week are projected to meet our investors' goals, which only reinforces our belief in this investment."

To highlight its opening, the Rodney Lough Jr. Wilderness Collections gallery will be holding a Grand Opening Charity Event on August 6, 2011, from 8:00pm to 11:00pm at One Jefferson Street in San Francisco. The event will benefit The Boys & Girls Clubs of the San Francisco Bay Area. If you are a collector interested in attending the opening, please register at http://rsvp.rodneyloughjr.com/.
