Doing Good and Having Fun

The South Bay Community Center, BIG BIG SLO and partners of local non-profits have teamed up together to raise much needed funds, awareness and to create a community-building event series called “Unity in the Community.” These events will include bands, dancing, BBQ, wine, beer and non-alcoholic refreshments, plus raffles for unique items. The first event is Sunday, September 3 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and is a benefit for Celebrate Los Osos and the Community Center. Funds raised will go to repair the median damaged recently by an uninsured, alleged drunk driver. 

A small group of generous friends, “Friends of Los Osos,” have underwritten the costs of the first concert, so the money raised will go toward the repairs at the median. 

“We want our event’s raffle and auction items to be truly unique,” said Celebrate Los Osos’ President, Pandora Nash-Karner, “and we’re focusing on unique items, for instance: 

A former Sunset Magazine pastry chef will teach four people how to make sweet and savory pie crusts in her waterfront home on the bay. They will bake pies and then take them home. Another item is an i-Phone photography lesson by well-known local photographer, Paul Irving—who rows on Morro Bay daily and is noted for taking fabulous bay photos. This item includes being rowed to the dunes, a gourmet picnic lunch and a lengthy photo technique session.”

Upcoming “Unity in the Community” events are October 3 for the Estero Bay Kindness Coalition and the South Bay Community Center with the “Zongo All-Stars”; and on November 3 for the Bay-Osos Kiwanis Club and the Los Osos Rotary Club as well as the South Bay Community Center with “Sound Investment.”

Tickets for all three events are free. Get yours via  Raffle tickets can also be purchased there as well as in person at the event.
