The event, which will include a live and silent auction plus a “balut” challenge for the brave-hearted, is for the benefit of West Bay’s AfterSchool Academic Enrichment and Mentorship Program.

The program provides academic and culturally competent mentoring support to youth ages 5 -17 and their families primarily from the underserved neighborhoods of South of Market and the Tenderloin.

“We are also raising funds for West Bay’s soon-to-be-launched College Prep Program for underserved youth,” said Vivian Zalvidea Araullo, West Bay’s executive director.

West Bay, the oldest Filipino-led nonprofit agency in Northern California, offers a multitude of free services to newly arrived Filipino immigrants, Filipino Americans and other underserved communities.
