Preschool fundraiser tomorrow!

A few days ago, I wrote about the plight of our state-run preschools, which have had their funding cut. If you want to help, this fundraiser sounds great!

Please join us for an amazing evening of ecstatic music and chant with National Kirtan singers – GIRISH, SEAN JOHNSON & THE WILD LOTUS BAND, LARISA STOW & SHAKTI TRIBE, & JACOB DURAN! With Mariam Gates as our fabulous MC! Incredible stage decoration by the talented Anapurna.

Let’s give a warm Santa Cruz welcome to these amazing musicians from New Orleans, Los Angeles, and of course our local favorites, Jacob & Girish! Girish’s band includes an eclectic mix of musicians from Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and North Carolina: Alvin Young: Bass guitar, Kevin Dinoto: Drums, Marti Walker: Vocals and harmonium, Jennifer Salima Holt: Violin, Sumati: Vocals, Annika Williams: Vocals

The first set begins at 6 pm. We’ll have healthy food and drinks, bodywork, aromatherapy, a raffle, and a silent auction.

Proceeds go to benefit SAVE SANTA CRUZ SCHOOLS – a group of parents working to fund 3Pens, a group of parent cooperative preschools including SCPENS, WPENS, SoquelPENs, which have been serving Santa Cruz families for 60 years, and have had 100% of their funding cut. The teachers of these schools, serving the underserved in Santa Cruz, are community leaders and heroes, and we are privileged to honor and help ensure their continued contributions.

Tickets are $20 advance, $25 at the door and can be purchased at Gateway Books: (831) 429-9600. No charge for kids under 12, $3 discount for students with ID.
