Beer is Love Partner Spotlight: SOMArtsAug 20, 2015 Comments (0)
SOMArts cultivates access to the arts within the Bay Area by collaborating with community-focused artists and organizations. Together, they engage the power of the arts to provoke just and fair inclusion, cultural respect, and civic participation. This summer, Ninkasi partnered with them through our Beer is Love program to help them throw a SOULstice Party and Fundraiser. Our friends from SOMArts filled us in on how the event went down.
SOMArts’ SOULstice Party and Fundraiser was a great afternoon graciously hosted by M-1 of Dead Prez and featured hip hop performances, DJs, a dance battle, pupusas on the patio, and a silent auction of gift certificates to Bay Area restaurants. And, of course, a bar featuring Ninkasi beer as well as our neighbor, Humm Kombucha! (Editor's note: great music, great people and great beer? That's our kind of party!)
The event helped SOMArts raise much-needed funds to continue their mission of cultivating access to the arts within the Bay Area by collaborating with community-focused artists and organizations. The coming together of so many cultures from all over the Bay was a new level of fundraising for the organization.
We'll cheers to that! Check out SOMArts for more information on the great work they're doing in San Francisco!
