We’re thrilled to present the 2016 Bookeaters’ Bash, our largest annual fundraising extravaganza benefiting 826 Valencia’s free writing, tutoring, and publishing programs for San Francisco youth. There’s much to celebrate this spring as we launch a new center in the Tenderloin neighborhood, bringing our unique brand of impactful programs to one of San Francisco’s most under-resourced areas. Join us and our special guest Mindy Kaling to celebrate and support this epic expansion!
