The Bay Area Girls Rock Camp has grown significantly since starting out with just one week-long camp in the summer of 2008. The Oakland-based independent organization now boasts several summer camps, an after-school program, and a Ladies Rock Camp. After adding a Board of Directors, an Executive Director, and expanding the volunteer pool, the organization continues to grow and develop their mission, which is to empower girls through music.
One way to support the efforts of the Bay Area Girls Rock Camp (besides donating and/or volunteering) is to attend the organization’s 2nd Annual Art Auction, which takes place on February 4th, 2011 at the Humanist Hall in Oakland (6:30 pm, $15).
The auction will feature signed memorabilia by artists such as Joan Jett, Ani DiFranco, R.E.M., Roseanne Cash, and more – and there will also be an intimate performance by Thao and Mirah. An extra-special night for an extra-special organization.
