2013 EBAYC Gala: Inspiring Generations of Leaders
October 03, 2013
Featuring Karina Iglesias contestant on the NBC hit show, "The Voice"
Each year, EBAYC’s annual benefit is held to raise awareness and funds to support our mission of inspiring young people to be lifelong builders of a just and compassionate multicultural society. Featuring family friendly entertainment, gourmet foods, and inspiring guest speakers - this event is friendly to all and brings the community together.
This year, EBAYC is thrilled to host our Annual Gala “Inspiring Generations of Leaders” on October 3, 2013 from 6:00pm-8:30pm at Yoshi’s at Jack London Square in Oakland. “Executive Chef Shotaro 'Sho' Kamio has created a new dining experience at Yoshi's with a new generation of modern Japanese cuisine. Using only fresh, high-quality, seasonal ingredients delicately combined with traditional spices, Chef Sho prepares each dish with his culinary philosophy: Seasonal, Simple, Surprise.”
We are equally excited to have Karina Iglesias, a contestant of NBC hit show The Voice, join us in the festivities and perform live. A surprise local jazz band will also grace the evening with their repertoire. We promise it will be an evening filled with great food, exquisite company, spectacular performances, and inspiration.
Our goal is to raise $80,000 to support our after school, counseling, and community organizing programs for approximately 2,000 underserved youth and families in Oakland. For many local to large businesses, entrepreneurs of food, beverage, and other products or services, this is an opportunity to showcase a vested interest in the community we live and work in. We are thrilled to invite you to make a collective impact with us through your sponsorship.
