I will be a participating artist in a wonderful benefit for a great organization, 30 % of the proceeds go to ALICE, a program that brings arts and literacy to underfunded schools and children in Oakland. Lots of great entertainment, food, wine, fun.

What: Vegan Soul Kitchen author, food justice advocate, and celebrated eco chef Bryant Terry joins ALICE: Arts and Literacy in Children’s Education in celebrating five years of teaching arts and culture to under-served Bay Area communities. Sample exquisite food and wine, as well as performances by the Bay Areas very own Ensambles Ballet Folklorico de San Francisco, Les Aerielles trapeze arts troupe, and Latin-American singer Yolanda Aranda. Check out a fashion show by Oakland’s forward-fashion maven Erica Varize, as well as an outdoor visual art exhibit, and eco-friendly arts and crafts for kids. Come for Terry’s address and book-signing and stay for the festival!

When: Sunday June 14, 2009 from 2 to 5 pm.
