EVENT DATE: Jun 13, 2013
Hi friends and family,
I'm writing to ask you to help me out by supporting my karaoke battle team, "Rupaul Ryan", in a fundraiser this coming Thursday, June 13th, for an amazing San Francisco organization called POWER.
POWER works to build the strength of working class African Americans and Latinos in SF to make change in their communities and to build a vibrant movement for economic, environmental, racial and gender justice. POWER will be using the funds from the karaoke battle to train 20 low-income youth of color to be community organizers and leaders this summer with its 4th annual E4LS (Education 4 Liberation School).
E4LS is a month-long program, very intensive, with guest speakers, outings, interactive workshops, and many chances for youth to put their new skills into practice. After the program, the E4LS graduates will lead youth organizing efforts to transform San Francisco's public transit system - this year they will focus on making the Free Muni for Youth (free bus transit for youth ages 5 to 17) pilot program permanent!
And "Rupaul Ryan" would love to have your support at the Karaoke Battle Benefit, taking place this Thursday, June 13th at The Mint, 1492 Market Street in San Francisco. My team has created a whole song and dance karaoke performance (complete with costumes!) to compete against other teams for prizes and glory!
Please help us raise at least $1000 by June 13th by donating to our team today.
