Come Celebrate The Success of Our Entrepreneurs on August 14th!

AnewAmerica will be honoring and celebrating its entrepreneurs on August 14th, 2014 from 6 to 9 pm at the Kaiser Center Roof Garden in Downtown Oakland! Our clients have put in very hard work to grow their microbusinesses - that's why we hold a yearly exposition, "Building Dreams, Changing Lives: A Celebration!" where they can all gather and showcase their amazing products and services.

This year, we are proud to have some wonderful clients at the expo:

Two art gallery owners, CamBinh (Cammy) La of Vi Gallery and Xochitl Guerrero of Taller Xochicura - they will display beautiful pieces in our marketplace room.

Sonam Thukhotsong, owner of the Essence of Tibet retail shop on College Avenue in Berkeley.

Food will be prepared by none other than our fabulous clients with food businesses. We will have Elvio Colombana of Lobo's Ice Cream, Nancy Rosales of Abel 1950, Elton Brown of EB Cakes, Lourdes Espino of Sweet Thoughts, Carmenza Rengifo of Arepas La Calenita, Tina Ferguson-Riffe of Smoke Berkeley, Christian Perez of Cortez Catering, Penny Baldado of Cafe Gabriela, and Tai Tran of Simply Garlic - all with delicious food from many different countries!

Irma Villa of Villa's Tailor Shop, Vicente Rico of Alex's Upholstery, Roger Baduar of Bela Nova (IT services), Juan Torres of La Saludable (vitamin and supplement shop), Margarita Serrano of Margarita's Notary, Julio Leiva of Lotus Cleaning Services, Norma Serna of Norma's Hair Extensions, Betty Bedregal of Betty's Butterflies Daycare, Olga Romero of My Little Bunnies Daycare, and Rahwa of the Ethiopian Community and Cultural Center will all attend, bringing their energy and enthusiasm to the crowd!

We are also proud to have some fantastic sponsors supporting our event. Union Bank, the California Healthcare Foundation, PG&E, ABC Security Services, Heritage Bank, Kaiser Permanente, Southwest Airlines, AT&T, BART, Port of Oakland, the Oakland Business Development Corporation, the Unity Council, the Community Housing Opportunities Corporation, and the Greenlining Institute will all be in attendance!

The event is not a traditional sit-down dinner - you will get to walk around, mingle with our other guests and sample many different cuisines prepared by our client vendors. Before and after our short program, we invite you to enjoy the festive marketplace our clients create with their food and entertainment. We will also have prizes and a silent auction with the potential for you to win Oakland A's skybox tickets (10), winery private tours and tastings, Southwest Airlines tickets, golf certificates, and passes to the Oakland Zoo. We are pleased to announce that Fabiola Kramsky-Gascón from Univision will be our emcee at our Expo.
