Want to have fun and support our community?

Come to a fundraiser featuring West Oakland youth and world-renowned Brazilian drummers.

Sat. April 17th 7-9PM Drumming, Dancing and Dinner

@ Historic Continental Club 12th & Campbell St.

$10 adults, $5 under 17 and free under 10 yrs. $10 for dinner- Bar-B-Q Chicken & sides.

All proceeds go to help Bumpitythump and Kaua Aloha perform at the World Rhythm Festival in Seattle on April 24th. These youth from West Oakland have worked hard to earn an invitation to this year’s festival, but they need help with travel expenses. It's a long way from 7th & Peralta streets to Seattle, WA- but we are determined to help them get there.

Can you support our youth by attending this performance? If you can’t attend but would like to contribute please consider buying a “donation” ticket.
