We’d like to thank our supporters for another sell-out event – four years in a row!!
Bayfront Alternative Education Program (BAEP) students experienced a genuine Sanctuary Moment yesterday. Students returning to their home schools expressed sincere gratitude for the program and our talented and dedicated staff members. The day started off highly emotional-Smiles and tears from students who initially came to the program displaying tough exteriors, minimal hope, anger, pain, no trust for adults, and closed to communicating their feelings, needs, and aspirations. Today, they reminded us why we do what we do! To hear them say, “Thanks for putting up with us, keeping it real with us, not giving up on us” made me proud
You know you want one, and you can get them on Eventbrite when you buy your tickets to this soon to be sold-out event. See the Schooner?
