Benefit Dinner in Oakland Raises Funds for MECA’s work

MECA supporters Ann Walker, Jon Demeter and Paula Rainey organized a benefit dinner at Bacheeso’s in Oakland in celebration of MECA’s 30 anniversary

Huge thanks to longtime MECA supporters Ann Walker and Paula Rainey who organized a beautiful and delicious fundraising dinner for MECA at Bacheesos Restaurant in Oakland on October 6th. Many new folks learned about MECA that night, as founding director Barbara Lubin spoke about our work. The warm and festive atmosphere was enhanced by wonderful oud player, Claude Palmer. Special thanks to Bacheesos owner Amir Asli for making this event possible – and to MECA volunteer Rob Kantor helping out that night!
