About grand opening:

August 27th from 6pm-8pm
ALAS Sueño Center in Half Moon Bay,
636 Purissima Street, Half Moon Bay, CA 94019.

What an amazing night we had as we launched our Sueño center. We are so thankful to all of you that came. So special to be together as we dream BIG about how to grow economic opportunities in this center for our community.

With the rise in rent and the pandemic impact- it was time to have a center where the community can make their arts and crafts to sell, learn graphic design and technology to showcase their natural talents and leadership. We look forward to sharing more!

This special event featured art by Moya Nacho and Dr. Belinda Arriaga’s children book.

Nacho has spent the past year working with ALAS to teach virtual art lessons and engage us in culture, creativity and healing! A portion of the proceeds will support our ALAS Program. Come and dream with us at our ALAS Sueño Center. This event is open to the whole community❤️
