To our beloved friends and colleagues,
This event is currently sold out!
We were thrilled – and frankly, a bit surprised – at how fast our Grand Opening tickets sold! We sold out within hours. Our team is looking for creative ways to increase our capacity and get more folks in the door. It's a community event and we want as many folks to join us as possible! Stay tuned.
Sponsorship spots are still available! If you're interested in sponsoring, please contact Mariah Gonzalez at firstname.lastname@example.org
After years of planning and construction, we are finally ready to invite our communities and partners to see the Greenlining 360 Center – our new nonprofit center in the heart of Downtown Oakland.
We have transformed a semi-abandoned bank building into an energy-efficient nonprofit center built with local, minority-owned businesses. This won’t be just another building with nonprofit offices, but rather an ecosystem that fosters collaboration among those who want to build equitable economic models that fight gentrification and displacement.
We invite you to be among the first to see the space and help us envision the future of this center for innovation.
Join us for good conversations, great music, and delicious food and drinks as we celebrate our Grand Opening!
Members of the media wishing to attend, please contact Bruce Mirken at email@example.com
Transforming the space.
In order to bring this vision to life, we need to raise funds to transform our two floors of community space into a fully furnished center complete with murals and art from Oakland artists.
Tickets for this event are offered on a tiered system ranging from Free to $500. We invite you to be a part of creating this innovation center and give what you can. All proceeds from this event will go to transforming this empty space into a flourishing center.
Your ticket grants you an all-access pass to the events throughout the day. Drop in for any and all sessions you can attend.
