First Friday

NEXT FIRST FRIDAY

Friday, March 2nd at 4pm, join Save The Bay and Bay Elementary at Drake's Brewery in San Leandro for First Friday! Bring your family and friends to celebrate East Bay education and the San Francisco Bay. All donations at the door and proceeds from beer sales will go towards Bay Elementary's mission to cultivate safe learning environments and ensure equitable opportunity and outcomes for all students, and Save The Bay's missions to protect, restore, and celebrate the San Francisco Bay. Save The Bay mobilizes thousands of Bay Area residents to protect and restore the Bay for future generations, both as advocates in their community and volunteers on the shoreline, so come on out to support their cause and learn how you too can get involved in protecting our region's more important natural resource!

GENERAL INFO:

  • $5 per person voluntary donation, to the non-profit organization we are supporting, at the gate. (Children with their parents free)
