On December 20, 2012 at Numi Tea Garden in Oakland, California Faith in the Bay and The In Faith Media Group along with Black Pearl Entertainment, Rock Rio, Inc., MLR Community Events and VAL Huff Public Affairs will gather toys for Oakland’s Head Start program during their Holiday Mixer and book signing featuring lifestyle and etiquette author, Enitan Bereola II (Soul Train, Essence Magazine).
Bereola, a popular lecturer, is known for his best-selling book: "BEREOLAESQUE:
The Contemporary Gentleman & Etiquette book for the Urban Sophisticate,"
that details the art of civility and style for young men, but also makes a good guide for women seeking a man of finesse.
The toy drive puts faith into action for Faith in the Bay, the principal platform for faith-based happenings and community events throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. In a short amount of time the website has grown and is widely considered the #1 Inspiration and Information destination for people of faith.
Throughout the mixer, gently used toys will be collected on behalf of Second Chance toys (a noprofit organization)
to benefit Oakland Head Start. Research studies confirm that “play” is a vital part of healthy emotional, physical and intellectual development for young children.
New and gently used toys will be collected at Numi Tea Garden, 2230 Livingston Street, Oakland from 7 pm to 9 pm. Come out and support this worthy cause. Reservations must be made to attend, please email rsvp@FaithInTheBay.com.Photo:
