Small Business Week Fundraisers
Thank you to everyone who celebrated San Diego entrepreneurs with us and contributed to another successful year of fundraising during National Small Business Week, June 16-21! This year Accion partnered with its clients Carnitas’ Snack Shack and Mama Testa to host two restaurant fundraisers for Accion. Both restaurants donated 20% of proceeds back to Accion to directly support its work of supporting small businesses in San Diego County.
Accion staff, board members, clients and community supporters came out to eat in support and almost $2000 was raised over two days. Also, local TV station KUSI featured Accion clients Mama Testa on Monday the 17th and Rawknykz Barbershop on Friday the 21st for special Business Week segments highlighting San Diego’s thriving small business community.
