Up On Top

We have now chosen our charity beneficiary for Bride of Trickster Treat. All proceeds this year will be going to Up On Top, a Tenderloin-based after-school program for elementary school students.

"Up On Top’s mission is to offer hope, stability, and fun to children of low-income families in San Francisco, preparing them to be successful in school and in life.

Up On Top creates a nurturing environment, which prepares children for academic and social success. A well-rounded curriculum is offered including homework support, academic tutoring and enrichment, science, leadership classes and field trips.
