Hurry, don’t sleep!
The Spot super supporter, Rodney Nestegard from Aramark food services, invited our Spot Youth to have a chance to enjoy last Saturday’s noon time game against the White Sox. Members from our OYEA (Oakland Youth Empower Advocates) and other youth came through and had a blast enjoying club seats. For some it was their first ball game at O.CO coliseum, and what better way to enjoy an A’s victory than with free jerseys day!
We are so glad we had a chance to provide a great time, and a reward to all the hard work the OYEAs do at the Spot, as they had to work overtime at all the Asian Heritage month events we’ve had these past Friday. We’ve also liked to thank the Oakland A’s for providing these tickets, and for providing a thrilling 10th inning walk off win! We wouldn’t have had these tickets unless our supporters have continually supported our A’s tickets fundraisers, so a big thank you to you as well!
Let’s Go Athletics!
Last Friday on the 31st, we had a great event to cap off the end of Asian Heritage month. The Spot collaborated with both Serve the People and The Rewrite. Both groups came together with the Spot to put on a poetry workshop that featured two youth poets and an open mic. We had workshops to explain the concept of poetry and home, and then we invited youth up to perform.
Cristna Sot and Gretchen Carvajal both showed up as featured poets, and we also had members from the Rewrite collective perform as well. Overall the event transformed the Spot into an artistic space and we’ll keep bringing events like this for ya’ll to enjoy!
