The first annual Phil Serna – Music on a Mission event was held on February 4th. The event raised approximately $30,000 for La Raza Galeria Posada, WEAVE (Women Escaping a Violent Environment), Cottage Housing, and the Roberts Family Development Center, all local non-profits. Organized by Sacramento County Supervisor Phil Serna and his band Rhythm Method, the event took place at The Sutter Club located in Downtown Sacramento. “Each of these organizations are close to my heart and fulfill critical missions in our community,” said Serna.
La Raza Galeria Posada is a multi-disciplinary cultural center serving the Sacramento community by offering Latino/Chicano and Native arts programming, arts education workshops, and arts exhibition space.
WEAVE provides crisis intervention services for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Sacramento County.
