YUCA's 20th Anniversary Gala and Fundraiser
Sunday, October 5th, 2014
5pm - 8pm
3921 Fabian Way, Palo Alto, CA 94303
Come out and celebrate YUCA's 20 years of developing young leaders of color, organizing the East Palo Alto community and making positive systemic change in the environmental and social justice movements. We are hosting a celebration dinner showcasing the last 20 years of our work by recognizing youth, community supporters, staff and funders who made it possible for us to arrive at this monumental point. It takes a lot of different relationships to build a movement, and our Gala will bring together a wide variety of members and friends (including you reading this, we hope!) to celebrate our past and support us into the future. We hope that you can celebrate with us as we venture into the next 20 years & work to TAKE OFFICE!
