Supporting Coffee, Together

A Microloan Fun(draiser) for Loans to Women Coffee Producers in Honduras, presented by Bay Area CoRoasters and Sedna Coffee/Yellow Rooster Imports

October 1, International Coffee Day, 5:30pm-9pm

Music, cocktails & mocktails, eats, and games! Supporting Coffee, Together is a party with a mission.

Together with Bay Area CoRoasters, Sedna Coffee/Yellow Rooster Coffee Imports, Fremont Bank, iFinca, and Rotary International, we’re creating a $200K fund for microloans to women coffee producers in Honduras. We're raising $10,000 to help fund the $80,000 match of Rotary's $120K grant.

Your money matters: $1 donated gets $1.5 of Rotary money!

We all hear the news about desperate Hondurans and the large migration of people risking everything to undertake the dangerous trip North. We can help and Microloans work! When loans are made, women have capital to enhance their money-making endeavors, thereby increasing the family’s financial security, reducing domestic violence, providing a recurring boost to the local economy, and giving women a voice in their communities.

Sponsored by: CoRo, Sedna Coffee/Yellow Rooster Coffee Imports, Fremont Bank and iFinca in connection with Rotary and Cuppa Jill, as well as: InterContinental Coffee Trading (ICT Coffee), Jeremiah's Pick Coffee, Boot Coffee Campus, Agora Coffee Merchants, Apfells Fine Coffee, Sunshine Pro Accounting & Tax, SPZ

Organized By: CoRo and Cuppa Jill

Sponsorships still available. Please contact Taylor Peliska to inquire.
