Fundraiser with Le Jarre!

Le Jarre!

Hello folks!

The Spot is proud to announce that we are launching our first ever fundraiser with Le Jarre!

Le Jarre is a new business that started right here in the city of Oakland in 2013 by Betty Noeume and Austin Cheung. They have gone on to create wonderful deserts such as delicious cheesecakes, madeleines, and their signature Jar Sweets, which are their cheesecakes baked in super cute glass jars!

What also makes Le Jarre stand out is their intentional effort to give back to the community. Le Jarre has generously offered to The Spot the opportunity to earn 35% of all the proceeds they earn when folks purchase either Creme Cheesecake or their Cafe Cheesecakes. However, if you are not in the mood for an entire cheesecake, you can also purchase their smaller versions which come in super cute jars as well.

The money raised from this fundraiser will directly benefit The Spot’s Oakland Youth Empowering Advocates (OYEA) program to create more opportunities for them to experience new activities!
