Meetup Description: FROM Saul aka Mr. Wonderful:

Dear OnyxFriends,

My friend Carlos and his band LA VENTANA are doing a benefit performance for ROYAL Realizing Our Youth As Leaders Inc. ROYAL is a non-profit agency based in the SF Mission District. The agency is dedicated to serving the most disadvantaged and high- risk youth all over the bay area with life and leadership skills. Unfortunately, they have lost their funding and need my help.

I invite you to come out to enjoy a wonderful evening of music, food, drinks, and of course - some amazing Spanish conversations! We will do a joint East Bay & SF Spanish speakers meet up. It will be a great opportunity for you to meet great people from the other side of the bay.

The West Bay Conference Center is in SF's Jazz District (across from Yoshi's). Tickets will be $20 online and $25 at the door. Gary D., the band's manager, has been kind enough to extend a discounted rate of $18 specifically for friends of Saul if tickets are purchased in advance! On top of having fun and practicing your Spanish - you'll be serving a greater need; all proceeds will be benefiting the kids and are tax-deductible.

If you are interested, RSVP and email me with your full name, phone number, and how many guests you plan on bringing. To let the cat out the bag, a documentary if being filmed of this entire event.

LA VENTANA is dubbed the hottest latin rock band in the Bay Area. Along with La Ventana, some of the bay area's incredible latin rock musicians will be making a guest appearance. LA VENTANA is known to feed the crowd with fun, energy and music to your soul. Make sure that you don't miss this event!

Celebrate life and the honor the wonderful work of ROYAL.

"To me, ROYAL means a lot. If ROYAL did not exist, how will our children get a big insight on leadership and self-control? ROYAL has impacted me hugely. It taught me a whole lot on how to become a better person inside and outside. It can teach a child and person the fruits of leading, respect, honesty, power of mind, and the way a person can become."
--Clifton, age 14

Can't go, but interested in helping the children? Please go to:
