spring benefit 2023
Thank you for supporting our WE ARE OAKLAND Benefit Concert on Friday, June 2, 2023! We had a great turnout at Trinity Lutheran Church and lots of amazing talent (as usual!). We also live-streamed the concert to increase the visibility of our event and cause and it went well! We were able to raise $7,623 for the Mental Health Association of Alameda County (MHAAC), a nonprofit that advocates for individuals with mental illness, supports and educates their family caregivers, and offers free mental health resources to the residents of Alameda County! That’s a new record for us and we are so thankful to everyone who made it possible.
Special thanks to Kathryn Davies Huber and the team from MHAAC for sharing at our event, Joseph Ham-Silvestre for hosting, Kyle Wong for running the live stream and stage managing, Taylor Gonzalez for running the sound, DC Scarpelli for graphic design, and Yvonne Johnson and Binky Bilse for coordinating the reception. A very special thank you to our performers for sharing their time and talent, and to our audience for your attendance and support. See you again in December!
