When: Sat., Oct. 11, 9 a.m. 2014
On Christmas day last year, San Francisco’s Homeless Youth Alliance Center on Haight Street shut its doors following a lease termination. The sad reality of what hopeful property owners call “resurgence” is often that the fruits of development pass over the neediest. There are other resources for the Bay Area’s homeless, notably Larkin St. Youth Services in the Tenderloin and At the Crossroads in the Mission. The latter has partnered with Project Amplifi — whose stated mission is to empower nonprofits through musical events — to present a daylong party at the SOMA dance club Mighty (119 Utah. St., San Francisco). The event, which runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday, features DJs from a host of popular parties, such as Non Stop Bhangra and Motown on Mondays. Furthermore Dylan Germick of Planet Booty, DJ Pleasuremaker of Afrolicious, and most impressively, hip-hop luminary Grandmaster Flash are slated to perform. All proceeds benefit At the Crossroads and Project Amplifi.
