On Saturday November 12 th, 170 revelers and EBAC supporters gathered at the spectacular University Club atop the Cal Memorial Stadium for a most successful and enjoyable EBAC Auxiliary Ball! Guests were treated to South African Gumboot drumming by children in one of EBAC’s afterschool program (link tohttps://youtu.be/a3tNEDceMeE) and heard moving stories of EBAC’s work. The lively auction raised over $50,000, contributing to the $150,000 (net) raised to be invested in EBAC’s mission to improve the well-being of children, youth and families by reducing the impact of trauma and social inequities.
Guests donned period costumes from the era with ladies competing to win the Chapeau Contest. Enjoy the wonderful photos (link to https://flic.kr/s/aHskNTJvzn)

The 2017 Walk to Remember was a wonderful celebration of life for the 150 children and adults in attendance. Together we raised awareness about the impact of grief on children and families and raised funds for Circle of Care’s grief services. It’s not too late to donate to this walk which has already raised over $24,000!
On Sunday, May 7th, 2017 Rockridge’s popular Wood Tavern restaurant closed its door for a private benefit for East Bay Agency for Children. Guests enjoyed Executive Chef Yang Peng’s creative and delicious culinary treats along with signature cocktails and a winning wine selection. Proprietor Rich Wood led a lively auction to raise money for children impacted by trauma who he called “the real heroes for showing up each day despite the challenges they face”. EBAC is incredible grateful to the Wood Tavern staff and patrons for their continued support.
