Exciting news! Another East Bay vegan bakesale is almost upon us, and this time round it’s all about empowerment through music and radio!
Please join us on Sunday (that’s right, it’s a Sunday this time for all those of you who can never make the Saturday events!), July 24th in front of Issues from 11am to 3pm. We’ll have the usual assortment of delicious baked goods from the Bay Area’s best vegan bakers, as well as, hopefully, some special surprises for you involving our two beneficiaries!
Who are the beneficiaries this month, you wonder? Let me help you get acquainted.
First we’ve got Bay Area Girls Rock Camp.
BAGRC is a nonprofit dedicated to empowering girls through music, promoting an environment that fosters self-confidence, creativity and collaboration. It is a place where girls learn to play instruments, form bands, and write and perform their own music in a supportive environment of female instructors and mentors. Through music lessons, workshops, group activities and performance, girls acquire skills that help guide them throughout their lives.
And our other fabulous beneficiary, Save KUSF.
From their website: From 1963 until 2011, KUSF was a community and student-run broadcast station owned by the University of San Francisco. At 10am on January 18, 2011 USF Deans informed the on-air dj that the station was going off the air and he was to cease programing and leave the studio at once. There had been virtually no warning that the station was to be sold. The dj and the rest of the volunteer staff and students were escorted off the premises by campus police. Following the frequency’s abrupt sale to USC, USF announced plans for a stripped down form of the station to become an online-only entity. The organization saveKUSF feels the sale is an injustice to the community KUSF served and is fighting to block the sale of the broadcasting rights to 90.3fm.
As usual, we’re looking for more bakers, volunteers, eaters and promoters! Does one or more of these descriptions fit you? If so, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how you’d like to contribute! Likewise, if you want a larger version of the flier for distribution, let us know and we’ll send it to you.
Thanks, as always, for your support, and we’re super, super excited to see everyone in a couple weeks at the next bakesale!!
If you’re looking for something to do this Saturday, there’s an even in Golden Gate Park put on by Rentalic, an online community that facilitates sharing and rental between members. Oh yeah, and a great big tower of 8 different flavors of our cupcakes will be there waiting for you!
