Back to School Bourbon Night

Back to School Bourbon Night

Join young professionals from across San Francisco for cocktails and a party to support the San Francisco Education Fund, a local non-profit that rallies San Francisco’s resources to support public schools and places those resources directly into classrooms.

Ticket proceeds will benefit the San Francisco Education Fund’s work with our public schools. Buy now or at the door. The first 75 to arrive will receive a free drink ticket. In the Halloween spirit? Wear a costume and you will also receive a drink ticket!

The event will feature a live DJ, fabulous raffle prizes and a food truck option just for attendees. Our 2nd Annual Back to School Bourbon Night will provide an excellent chance to network with young professionals from a diverse array of industries.

A child’s education is their foundation for success in life. We are dedicated to increasing the number of public school students – in particular those from underserved communities – who graduate from high school ready for college, career and civic responsibility.

EdMatch and the San Francisco Education Fund have combined efforts make an even greater impact on students. Please consider joining Back to School Bourbon Night's host committee. Just give or raise $250 (10 tickets).

Fundraiser for EdMatch

All funds raised go directly to support EdMatch. More about the organization:
In San Francisco, approximately $6M is raised every year in supplementary funding for schools - mostly by parents and PTAs. The bulk of this "supplementary" money benefits students at only 10-15 campuses out of the 114 public schools in SFUSD. This inequality in funding leads to fewer extracurriculars, a shortage of modern technology, and even sometimes a lack of pencils and paper.
EdMatch seeks to leverage the fundraising already occuring at these 10-15 schools by raising additional funds that are distributed equally across all schools in SF based on student population. The funds raised go directly to the School Site Council (SSC) at each campus, a group of parents, teachers, and administrators from that school community. Then they can decide how best to spend it based on their own students' needs (edMatch approves all spending decisions as a precaution, but the decision is local).
