LOND Fundraiser and 2016 recap - with Honey Of The Heart

Love Our Neighborhood Day 2016 was a huge success! 

Collectively, we doubled the activities and neighborhood outreach, increased attendance and participation, and made a vision of a safe open San Pablo a CAR FREE zone for 5 hours on June 4th, 2016. Your dedication and support for this event is appreciated! 

We are happy to say that we were able to decrease our costs by almost $6,000 in the process of making a more vibrant and active event! What a feat! However, we came up short in total funds still by $2500. We are asking for your support to keep us out of the red with this event and continue Loving Our Neighborhood with a strong and powerful voice. 

100% of proceeds from this event go towards LOND 2016 costs. If we raise above our costs, we are putting 100% into 2017 LOND! Yes, that means that we can start booking and solidifying the event date and activities even earlier, jumping ahead to create more opportunities for our neighborhood to connect and thrive. Thank you Novel Brewing for hosting this event, and having 100% of all the tips for the night go toward LOND 2016!

Food Catered by: Namaste Pizza, Chille Jalepeño and more TBA. 

Music by: Honey of the Heart

Also, Justin Ancheta, the Director of LOND 2016 has offered to support the event by donating 100% of the profits from his new release "Dark Winter Night" from Now through September 1st. The song was released for the first time on June 4th at Love Our Neighborhood Day. To get your download and support LOND, please visit here:
