On Thursday, October 11, party with us in downtown SF at the beautiful urban space East Gardens at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. We're helping to throw A Taste Of Microfinance, a mini food festival and cocktail party with Opportunity Fund (who were one of our Favorite Charity Contest semi-finalists last year!), where you'll get a chance to taste the best of the local food scene and indulge in an open bar for a great cause.

Enjoy enough tasty food to fill you up, lots of drinks to wash it all down, and mixing and mingling with a courtyard full of people who are passionate about microfinance (which, if you didn't already know, are small loans to small businesses that can’t get a loan from the banks).

This means you'll be helping the start-ups and mainstays of Main Street–or even Fillmore/Valencia/Noe Street–that create the most jobs in our City. So get out there, taste their food, and celebrate the microloans (and microlender: Opportunity Fund) that helped them make their dreams a reality! The event will sell out, so grab your tickets as soon as you can.
