Celebrate and support entrepreneurship in Los Angeles at Opportunity Fund's Taste of Microfinance cocktail party!
With a "Microfinance Marg" and a @RickysFishTaco in hand, we'll come together to support the next 10 rising chef entrepreneurs in Los Angeles—helping them build the businesses they've dreamed of, so their families can get ahead instead of just getting by.
Taste of Microfinance is a food festival and cocktail party featuring cuisine from renowned culinary entrepreneurs, all of whom used an Opportunity Fund microloan to launch or grow their business!
Opportunity Fund is the #1 non-profit microlender in Southern California and the #1 lender of food trucks statewide, having backed beloved mobile entrepreneurs including @CoolhausLA and @RickysFishTacos and local restaurants like @LosBalconesPeru.
With a hosted bar and stellar menu, the night is fun and the purpose is clear: you'll be providing a hand up—not a hand out—to your neighbors who are women, immigrants, and minority business owners looking for a chance to write their own American story, even as the odds get tougher.
Cocktails + Music + Fun
Enjoy a hosted bar, music, and a unique urban oasis at SmogShoppe.
Support a Great Cause
Join hundreds of local philanthropists, food lovers, microfinance enthusiasts, impact investors and civic leaders for an evening of culinary delights, cocktails and giving, with proceeds benefiting Opportunity Fund's microfinance clients.
Anything from jeans and a blazer or slacks and a button down shirt for men will work. Ladies can rock jeans, too (with heels and statement necklace, perhaps!) or glam it up a bit with a dress... Or maybe you're ready to bring out your jumpsuit for the season? (Because, we'd love to see it!)
21+ (adults only)
