In what has become an right of Spring, Streetsblog returns to the los Angeles Eco-Village (116 Bimini Place) for our Third Annual Spring fundraiser on May 11 from 6:00 P.M. until late in the evening. The event will feature food and drinks, the debut of a new Streetfilm, a raffle and the best darned company and conversation that can be found anywhere. The Eco-Village fundraisers have been one of our most important fundraisers raising needed funds as the Streetsblogs push our combined fundraising campaign.
Tickets are $30 per head on a sliding scale. As always, we don’t deny anyone admittance if they don’t have the recommended donation. You can reserve tickets through our donation page . Make sure to select “Los Angeles” from the drop down bar to “direct your donation” and put “Eco-Village” in the “why you support” text bar. Or, you can just pay at the door. There is no entrance fee for any “subscribers .” You can also RSVP on Facebook.
If you work for a company or organization that is interested in sponsoring the event with a larger donation in exchange for entrence tickets, raffle tickets and visibility please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
