Show to benefit youth summer programs

Mo’ MAGIC fundraiser to help support their summer youth programs:

Mo’ MAGIC is organizing another magical summer for the children and youth in the Western Addition. In our dedication to combating summer learning loss, we have coordinated activities, field trips and enrichment for hundreds of children and youth in the community.

We are pleased to announce our newest project – The MAGIC Show. It is a fundraiser that is critical to our summer learning initiatives. On April 25, 2011 we will have a reception and program highlighting Mo’ MAGIC and the Summer of MAGIC, with performances by Pop Lyfe and recognition of community leaders such as Fillmore legend Leroy King, volunteer extraordinaire Richard Johnson and Western Addition Beacon Director Takija Gardner.

The suggested donation for the MAGIC show is $75 ($50 for Western Addition residents and service providers and $20 for youth), but any donation is appreciated. Please consider making a donation and joining us for a night of MAGIC on April 25, 6:00pm at Yoshi’s San Francisco. Visit The MAGIC Show donation page here to get tickets. Donate Now!

Mo’ MAGIC is collaboration of organizations and community members working together to create opportunities for youth to grow and learn. Currently we host weekly enrichment opportunities for more than 400 neighborhood children and youth and a weekly mentoring series for 100 youth. We hire enrichment teachers for 10 organizations serving 250 youth and distribute 1500 backpacks filled with school supplies EACH YEAR.
