Thursday! Big, Special Bonus Fundraiser for Fire Victims at El Rio


There’s a big benefit for the Mission Street fire victims happening tomorrow, Thursday June 30, at the fabulous El Rio, and Bernalwood is a co-sponsor.

This is a great event to shower with copious amounts of your cash, because a generous corporate sponsor has agreed to match all the proceeds collected at the door. That means for every dollar you give, the fire victims will get twice as much of your generosity.  Here are the details:

Fundraiser for Survivors of Mission Fire on Mission St & 29th
Thursday, June 30 at 8 PM – 11:30 PM
El Rio – 3158 Mission (@Precita)

Join us for a fundraiser for survivors of the fire that burned down the homes of 58 people on Mission and 29th.

Door fee will be $10 (but no one turned away). We’ll also do a raffle. El Rio is kindly donating all bar proceeds from 8-12 to the fund.

All proceeds will go directly to the familes and will be matched 1-1 by a corporate sponsor. The Mission Economic Development Agency will process all donations and won’t be charging a fee.

You can also donate online here (with MEDA) and here (with Edwin Lindo).

Virgil’s Sea Room (the bar just next door to El Rio) will also be taking donations at the door. If there’s a long line or you want to wait, sit down and grab a cocktail while still helping our neighbors.
