Celebrate Giving Tuesday while helping raise funds for our educational programs, including Community Reading Buddies!

Giving Tuesday is a healthy slap in the face to the commercialism of Black Friday. SLAP!!

Get into the real spirit of the season with us by gathering in support of Oakland Youth! There will be a warm, enchanting patio complete with our own wine and beer bar.

Everyone is invited to come down and enjoy complimentary tapas and take part in a raffle. We’re hoping that folks who come to Marc 49 can donate at least $15, but mostly we’d just love to have you there to celebrate.

Donations will help make sure that our Community Reading Buddies program is able to continue its twenty year legacy within the community. This is for Oakland’s youngest, and best. Put it on the calendar!

Can’t make it out on Dec. 2? You can still support Aspire’s revitalizing programming by donating to our year-end fundraiser:

Our goal is $6500 by December 2nd, and we need every bit of it to continue our spectacular programming for the neediest kids in Oakland next year!

We hope to see you there. It’s going to be fun.
