Join us for our 2016 Bookeaters’ Bash fundraiser

Saturday, May 14, 2016

We’re thrilled to present the 2016 Bookeaters’ Bash, our largest annual fundraising extravaganza benefiting 826 Valencia’s free writing, tutoring, and publishing programs for San Francisco youth. There’s much to celebrate this spring as we launch a new center in the Tenderloin neighborhood, bringing our unique brand of impactful programs to one of San Francisco’s most under-resourced areas. Join us and our special guest Mindy Kaling to celebrate and support this epic expansion!

Celebrate into the night with a hosted bar, delicious artisanal food, on-stage conversation with Mindy Kaling, the music of local indie rock band Geographer, a lively auction, and more. General seating at the Bash is open, with opportunities for guests to mingle, nosh, bid, and dance. TICKETS
