Would you be a part of our upcoming Freedom Fund Gala by providing reasonably priced take-out dinners for the event? 

 The National Association for the Advancement for Colored People (NAACP) is excited to announce the Honorable Congresswoman Maxine Waters as its keynote speaker for the Freedom Fund Gala on Saturday, October 16, 2021. She will be introduced by Congressman Salud Carbajal. The theme is “Committed to Social Justice,” and all funds raised will support our work to bring social justice and equality for all in our county. 

 This will be a virtual event in which participants can “share dinner” from their home. Partnering restaurants will provide a selection of dinners that participants can pick-up and enjoy at home. Because of the economic impact of the pandemic on the food industry, we won’t ask restaurants to donate food, but to donate 10% of sales to the NAACP SLO.

To bring visibility to your establishment and to encourage sales, the NAACP will promote participating restaurants through our website, social media, and newsletter to over 400 members and additional subscribers. You will be listed in the Souvenir Event Program and acknowledged during the event to encourage continued support of your business. Only a few food establishments in each area of the County will be able to participate in this opportunity so we hope you will let us know of your interest as soon as possible.  

Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nations’ oldest, largest, and most widely recognized grassroots-based civil rights organization. Our mission is to secure the political, education, social, and economic equality of rights to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons. There are over a half-million members and supporters nationwide and around the world. Our San Luis Obispo County Branch is one of the largest in California with over 400 members.

This will be an ideal event for you to support a worthwhile cause while engaging with potential new customers.
