Brew Bakers is looking for a band to play chill acoustic music on weekends (at both the main restaurant and the new cafe location). In the past they’ve had student bands perform and found that customers really love it. Though this wouldn’t be a paid thing, previous student bands that played there received generous tips. It’s meant to be background music while people chat and eat so please no drums or anything too intense. If you are interested, please contact me or Brew Baker’s owner Eloise Tencher: mybrewbakers[at]gmail[dot]com
Date: February 17th through May 31st, 2016
Place: Brew Bakers
From Marina King ’16:
Come to Brew Bakers to enjoy breakfast, lunch and delicious coffee where you can also support SHOFCO (Shining Hope for Communities). Brew Bakers will give 5% of all proceeds to the Wesleyan-originated Shining Hope for Communities! Bring your mom, bring your dad, bring your entire family!
SHOFCO has created a network of community driven social services such as a health clinic, a women’s empowerment program and much more in Kibera, Kenya, one of the largest slums in Africa. They also provide support for two tuition free schools for girls in Kibera and Mathare: two slums in Nairobi, Kenya.
