11am - 7pm each day
+ART HAUL feat. Janelle Carter

Janelle Carter is the Scion x-CHANGE Featured Artist!The Scion x-CHANGE : San Diego featured artist is our friend and long-time collaborating supporter, the fabulous and über talented, Janelle Carter. She will have numerous pieces on display in the ART HAUL (for sale - gift giving season is upon us *wink wink*) and she will be doing live art each day!  Um… Radical!

We will have tons of smiles, fist bumps and karma points to give out, not to mention the fact that we’re all a pretty fun crowd!

Here’s how it works :

VENTURE out to our location, TEST DRIVE a Scion (or just receive info on the brand), take a short SURVEY (less than 5 minutes) and then. . . you can either choose a $5 gift certificate for a local company OR you can choose to DONATE that $5 back to the cause and Scion will DOUBLE it! We have raised $4,715 to date on our CAUSE PAGE - become a member and help us in a contest to be in the top 3 nonprofit with the most members to win leftover cash from the tour! ( see standings below)

All funds raised from this event will support our amazing friends and artists at A Reason To Survive (ARTS).

Fruit of the Soul 2010 was a success!

Posted By Kelly Orange on October 21, 2010

Thank you for helping us raise over $25,000 at Fruit of the Soul!!!

To each and every one of you who participated in this event, from chefs, volunteers, sponsors, donors, and consumers, to artists, musicians, dancers, and lovers…. we could not have done this without you.  Five years in we are so blessed to have such an amazing group of friends, co-workers and supporters who get what the event is about. Through all the trials, tribulations, troubleshooting and hurdles, it has always turned out… just as it should; a totally amazing night filled with fun and the realization that this isn’t just for us, it’s for them…

Double your donation through our cause page!

Posted By Kelly Orange on October 11, 2010

We are a Scion x-CHANGE featured nonprofit!

Maybe you can’t attend this year’s event, maybe you are extra generous, maybe you just feel like spreading the word…

We are one of the fortunate non-profits picked to be part of the Scion x-CHANGE program!  For the second time around Scion x-CHANGE has pledged to match up to $1,000 raised through the Fruit of the Soul Cause Page!

During the summer tour they helped us raise $2,546 and we know we can double and even triple that number with your help.  If you are considering a donation, even $10 will magically turn into $20!

We are also eligible to win some extra prize money for being one of the top 3 participating non-profits with the most memberships!  All you have to do is join.
