For 45 years, Bread & Roses Presents (www.breadandroses.org) has uplifted people of all ages who are isolated in institutional settings. The organization achieves this mission through the daily presentation of free, live musical performances (over 600 per year throughout the Bay Area) that offer hope and healing and rekindle the human spirit.
Bread & Roses serves all ages and as part of their ongoing commitment has a special focus on serving disadvantaged children from high-risk neighborhoods. One-third of Bread & Roses’ performances are delivered to children and youth who are isolated. Many are homeless or from immigrant families or single-parent households and would otherwise not have access to high-quality music or interactive shows. All over the Bay Area, Bread & Roses works with schools and community partners to help preschool-age children develop their motor skills, letter and word recognition, rhyming, socialization and much more.
These Children Need Your Help
To better serve the growing number of children who desperately need a helping hand to grow amidst chronic challenges and an uncertain future, Bread & Roses has committed to expanding its programs for its youngest audiences. They are currently bringing more programs to child-centered facilities and recruiting additional performers to serve them. Many of these facilities are Head Start sites, low-income child development centers and other community partners serving at-risk children.
But, they need the community to step up with critical financial support to fulfill this mission.
The Benefit Concert
To this end, Ian Dogole (www.iandogole.com), recording artist, bandleader, percussionist and long-time Bread & Roses volunteer, has created a special event to help raise funds for Bread & Roses’ program expansion for at-risk children.
This event will feature Ian and a cast of world-class musicians who will create music to open your heart, uplift your soul and unite our community in support of a truly heroic organization – Bread & Roses Presents.
We hope you will join us in supporting the spirited, caring mission of Bread & Roses at this special event.
Stay tuned for ticketing information.
