International non-profit buildOn is throwing a party in the neighborhood this Saturday (9/29), Ashley shares the details with us:
BuildOn runs afterschool youth service programs that mobilize urban teens to lift up their communities and change the world through intensive local community service and by building schools in some of the poorest countries on the planet. It’s an incredible non-profit that works locally with youth and additionally connects them with service globally building schools across the world.
On September 29th, we are having our first buildOn Carnival in the Mission at Wix Lounge at 22nd and Mission! It will be a really great event to raise money to support all of our great programs. Purchase of a ticket (at only $40 pre-sale, $50 at the door) gets you:
1. Unlimited Beer and Wine
2. Tickets to your favorite carnival and casino games
3. Chance to win amazing prizes, several from local favorite places
4. Carnival Themed Snacks from Straw SF
5. Face painting/Clowns/Live Music by Los Trancolizers
Additionally, to put it in perspective, each $40 ticket pays fully for education for TWO students in a developing country for a whole year! Can’t tell me that isn’t an awesome way to spend your money – a great evening of fun with proceeds going to a good cause.
