Those of you lovely ladies that were fortunate enough to attend our first round of Hunko Bunco Fundraiser at Kupros can attest to how amazing it was to be catered to by our Sacramento's most eligible bachelors. So in case you didn't get enough eye candy or missed out on the dessert then here's your chance to fulfill your desire for more Hunkos and lost of Bunco! Alley Katz is generously opening up their back room in Midtown for Sherriment Productions and Blondie Inc to host this fabulous fundraiser to benefit Saint Johns Program of real change. We will lead you in a fun game of Bunco. Don't worry about leaving your table to get a drink from the bar while your rolling that die because a Hunko Bunco volunteer will be right there to serve you. Please register as seats are limited! Game rules are simple. Show up at 6:30 for check in and a quick run through of rules. First game will start promptly at 7:00pm. Tickets include food, dessert and one drink ticket to get the night rolling. Come out and support the wonderful things Saint John's is doing for our community!
For over 30 years, Saint John’s has provided nearly 30,000 homeless women and children with the essential tools to rise above their circumstances, steady their footing and personal foundation to fully care for themselves and their children. By helping each woman transform and change the trajectory of their lives once and for all, we are creating healthy, self-sustaining and thriving families who are empowered and can truly break the generational cycle of poverty, homelessness and abuse. We help unleash the potential of mothers in crisis to improve their quality of life and achieve self-sustainability. Built on a life-changing replicable model, we accommodate up to 550 women and children each year with five levels of comprehensive services and three levels of increasingly independent housing. Thoughtfully designed to support women in taking responsibility for themselves and their children, each family receives an average of 675 hours of services each month. Our holistic and immersive approach within an 18-month program includes mental health therapy, alcohol/drug counseling, parenting and healthy relationship training, budgeting and financial classes, a GED and High School Diploma program, an on-site Children's Program, all transportation AND extensive hands-on job training at one of our three social enterprises, Plates Café & Catering, Plates Midtown and First Steps Child Development Center, where women gain valuable skills in the food service, hospitality and childcare industries. One of the most direct ways to reduce poverty and increase economic mobility is to help women break down barriers and improve their employability skills so they can earn a livable wage and support their family. 96% of Saint John's job training graduates secure unsubsidized employment, a crucial step on their journeys to success and self-sustainability.
