Last Friday night Davis Street and San Leandro made history.
The "Stand Up for Davis Street" comedy fundraiser held at the Historic Bal Theatre was attended by an audience of 700 ticket holders and over 60 volunteers, happy to support our programs and very curious about the "surprise guest."
The event was a huge success thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, the community and the very talented and FUNNY comedians, Brian Copeland, Bob Sarlatte, Mark Pitta, Will Durst, and Johnny Steele who brought the house down!
But the audience roared when the one and only George Lopez entered the stage to the tune "Low Rider”.
Thank you to Brian Copeland for bringing this incredible line up to San Leandro! A heartfelt thank you to George Lopez for his performance and for staying to socialize until our last guest left--it was perfect!!!!
“I can't remember a more memorable night in San Leandro” said one guest, while others have flooded our lines emails and texts to share their enthusiasm.
One person reflected on the serious work we do to help those in need, by saying that Davis Street delivered laughter tonight…and that is the best medicine! So, folks, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you. My staff thanks you, our volunteers thank you, and our neighbors who will benefit from your contribution, thank you!
