Taste of Microfinance LA

 

What a night! Last week, over two hundred and fifty friends, donors and supporters gathered to celebrate entrepreneurship and Opportunity Fund's investments and community in Southern California. The incredible night featured food prepared by our talented chef entrepreneurs, all of whom received a microloan to expand their business. Thank you to all who joined us!

Taste of Microfinance is an important way we are building our community of supporters in Greater Los Angeles, helping Opportunity Fund to close the gap between a dream and an opportunity for local entrepreneurs. Last week, we raised $75,000 to support the dreams of 1,400 more small business owners in the coming year!

Every dollar invested in Opportunity Fund produces ripple effects in the community. Because of our community of supporters, small business owners will now be able to hire more people, expand their businesses and contribute to our local economy.

Congratulations Top Chef!

Guests were able to vote to choose their favorite chef of the night. It was a stiff competition - Los Balcones del Peru, Takuma's Burger, World Empanadas, Sugarbird Sweets, CJ's Wings, and Coolhaus were all strong contenders, but Ricky, owner of Ricky's Fish Tacos won the title Top Chef at the party!

Check out all the photos from the party!
Let's get social! 1 share = $18 in donations, on average.
