Assistance League® of the Bay Area will celebrate 25 years of service to the community with a Kick-Off Party on Saturday, November 9 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the historic Jim West Mansion located at 3303 E. NASA Parkway.
Tickets are $50 per person and, in addition to offering the opportunity to take one of the first public tours of the restored West Mansion, will include light appetizers, music, and automatic entry for door prizes. The local landmark is now home to Hakeem Olajuwon’s business, DR34M. Basketballs signed by Olajuwon will be sold with a portion of the proceeds donated to Assistance League.
Funding for local philanthropic programs is generated through Assistance League’s Resale Shop and its annual fundraising events. The April 5, 2014 annual fundraising gala theme, as well as opportunities for underwriting and sponsorships will be announced at the Kick-Off Party. Proceeds from the event and the April 5th gala directly support the local philanthropic programs of Assistance League of the Bay Area. Tickets are available to the public and may be purchased through the Resale Shop, 100 NASA Pkwy. or by calling 281-554-2594.
