What a night! Recap and photos from Opportunity Fund's Taste of Microfinance LA

Posted on Mar 28, 2017 by Jacqueline Heinrich


Last week, nearly two hundred friends, donors and supporters gathered to celebrate entrepreneurship and Opportunity Fund's microfinance investments in Southern California. The incredible night featured food from talented chef entrepreneurs, many of whom received an Opportunity Fund microloan to grow their business. 

Taste of Microfinance is an important fundraiser, helping Opportunity Fund to close the gap between dreams and opportunities for the next 10 rising chef entrepreneurs in Southern California. Together, we raised $45,000! Every dollar invested in Opportunity Fund produces ripple effects in the community. With community support, small business owners will now be able to hire more people, expand their businesses and contribute to the local economy.


Thank you to our Southern California Regional Board and the hosts of last week's party for your leadership in driving economic mobility in Southern California – you are an incredible group doing amazing work!
