Garden Party Fundraiser to Benefit Raices

Sunday, November 17th, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


What is RAICES?
Founded in 1986 as the Refugee Aid Project by community activists in South Texas, RAICES is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency whose mission is to defend the rights of immigrants and refugees, empower individuals, families and communities, and advocate for liberty and justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees.

A general admission ticket ($50) gets you…

– Oaxacan Food from Poncho’s Tlayudas (“Drizzled with golden dregs of homemade lard, spread with seasoned black beans, meaty quesillo and shredded cabbage, the tlayuda at Poncho’s is then folded in half so all the ingredients melt into one another. The cabbage steams gently. The outside toasts. And the tlayuda becomes a tlayuda.The dish is substantial, but not heavy; crisp, but not fragile. It is portable, but best enjoyed immediately, in place, surrounded by the warmth of chatter and grill smoke” – Tejal Rao, New York Times)
– Mediterranean Snacks from Spitz (“where the streets of Berlin meets California fresh”)
– Performance by Pacifico Dance Company (an organization dedicated to the performance and preservation of traditional Mexican dance through the reconstruction of choreography and dance training.)
– Silent Auction with items from The Now, L.A. County Store, Botanica, Barbrix, Found Coffee, Square One, Ethereal Culture, Aesop
– Affirmations and Emotionally-Attuned Compliments Booth with Laura Mohai, trauma-informed yoga instructor
– Wine, beer, and soda
– Dancing (we’ll provide the space and the music, you bring your sick moves)
– Laughter and Fun (*unlimited supply!)

A VIP ticket ($100) gets you…

All the above plus
