Join us for our 10th Anniversary Party Dinner event at on March 21 from 6 to 9 p.m. at El Paseo Inn at Olvera Street, across the street from Union Station. We’ll be looking back at 10 years of stories, advocacy, and the people that have made up a decade of Streetsblog.
We’ll also be honoring a special group of Super-Streetsie Winners for being the newsmakers and leaders that have made 10 years of Streetsblog as exciting as they’ve been. As we get closer to the event, we’ll be announcing more winners. Today, we are ready to announce four:
City Councilmember Mike Bonin
Tamika Butler, Esq.
The California Endowment
Tickets are $100 per person on a sliding scale. If you can’t afford $100 or you just donated during our winter drive, feel free to slide down to a lower number. There are also sponsorship opportunities listed here. If you have a different sponsorship in mind, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to talk.
It’s hard to believe it has been 10 years. With your help, we look forward to celebrating 20 years in 2028!
