San Francisco Art Gallery Hosts YJI Benefit

Nipping at the heels of “I Love YJI” events in Durban, South Africa; Kabul, Afghanistan, and Connecticut, the next bash will be a wine tasting benefit in San Francisco, California, for adults only.
For Bay Area people, it’s simply not to be missed.
Hosted by YJI alum Shaina Zura, the wine tasting benefit will be held from 7-10 p.m. on Saturday, March 16, at Spoke Art, a cool gallery at 816 Sutter St., San Francisco.
Shaina, who participated in YJI as a Connecticut high school student, has remained a committed and involved alum and has put together quite a party. Thanks to generous donations from the Bay Area community, there will be wine and food and some awesome items up for auction as well as lots of information about YJI. If you are in the area, please come!
Shaina is asking people who attend to give at least $10 at the door, and we hope that won’t be a burden. After all, you’ll be helping to give a voice to young writers, artists and photographers all around the world.
YJI alum Talon Bronson will be on hand from Portland, Oregon, to talk about his experiences in the organization, too.
Please help us spread the word!
