Hello fellow A's fans
My name is Mike, Green and Gold born and raised.
I currently work on an initiative to setup a collaborative youth center in the Oakland Chinatown area. That initiative, called "The Chinatown Youth Center Initiative"/aka "The Spot" is hosting a fundraiser at the Sunday 7/31 Game versus the Twins. The Spot is selling Lower Box tickets for $25 (normally $30) and you'll not only support your team but support community based organizations that are trying to help local youth get ready for the future.
We'd really appreciate it if you could attend with us, or sponsor tickets for youth to attend. The info is below, I folks will support or pass the word.
