Coffee & Toast, 4/29 and 5/6

Using a portion of the money donated to Bread! KC during their November Fundraiser Gala-la-la-la, Bread Boys Sean & Andy combine their proposals to present an alternative grant raising model called Coffee & Toast. Much like Bread! food is used to raise money for up to three creative, project based proposals by collecting money from diners. Unlike BREAD!, coffee and toast will be served instead of dinner, all presentations will be posted online instead of real time, and diners will vote with tips instead of ballots. By dropping cash into any or all of 3 available tip jars, each corresponding to a proposal, Coffee & Toast patrons give their support directly to their favorite project. Tips for will be collected over the course of the Speakeasy and be donated at the end of the exhibition; the project proposals will remain posted on Youtube for the same length of

Coffee and Toast is $4 with the expected tip to be between $1 and $6 dollars.

Dates: 4/29 and 5/6 between 12 and 5 @ The Speakeasy!
