Mission Fire Fundraiser This Weekend
The four-alarm fire that ravaged the corner of Mission and 22nd streets on Jan. 28 is still wreaking havoc on the neighborhood. The fire displaced 36 businesses and 71 employees, and this weekend a fundraiser will help those affected. Come to the nearby Make-Out Room on Sunday from 6pm to 10pm for free hors d’oeuvres and light refreshments and hear music from Pangea Futbol Club and Adelante Salsa Band Cover. There's no cover charge, but donations are strongly suggested. Mission Economic Development Agency (MEDA), which is throwing the event, says 100% of funds collected at the door and 15% of the bar will go to a fund to directly support the businesses.
