Musical Benefit

Save the date for Sunday, Feb. 23! We are partnering with InConcert Sierra to offer a special benefit concert. The artists are donating their time to make this concert possible and all proceeds will be jointly split to support the arts and to help people overcome homelessness. As part of the concert, attendees will hear from one individual on his journey to return to housing, and following the concert, attendees will enjoy wine (donated by Ironstone Vineyards) and light appetizers, dutifully prepared by Chef Chris and homeless students enrolled in our culinary cooking program.
