Sponsor Christine’s Golden Run in Honor of KULARTS!

December 22, 2017 in Uncategorized

Our Golden Pinay is at it again!! 

Sponsor this incredible artist, educator and of course fabulous Kularts Board Member, Christine Balance as she runs in honor of Kularts this February, 2018 in the Surf City Half-Marathon.

Read her full message below and click the button to become a Golden Sponsor!


On February 4, 2018, I will be running the Surf City Half-Marathon in honor of KulArts, an organization that has served the South of Market Area, San Francisco/Bay Area, California and the larger Filipino diaspora for the past three decades. Over the years, KulArts has provided for me—as an artist, scholar, and community member—a place to express, experiment, and explore my self, history, and my culture. And I know it has done the same (and so much more) for countless others.


If 2017 has taught us anything it’s that, now more than ever, we ourselves have to support the people we love, the things that bring us joy, our stories and our self-expression.


Today, and in the spirit of this holiday/holy-day season, I am writing to ask for your sponsorship of my half-marathon run, with all the proceeds directly benefiting KulArts. Your donation can be as low as $1 per mile ($13.10) or as great as $100 per mile ($1,310). All sponsorship/donations will receive a tax-deductible donation letter directly from KulArts, all donors/sponsors will be listed on the KulArts website, and I will be buoyed by your generosity and spirit on the actual race day. If you’d like to follow my training journey, feel free to visit or follow me on Instagram (@basyang76).


Please help me reach my final goal of $4,192 by the end of 2017—a mere $320 per mile ($10 for every year that KulArts has existed). You can send your donation/sponsorship directly to KulArts’ Paypal account HERE or via check to Kularts 474 Faxon Ave SF, CA 94112. Please be sure to include, in the memo/message section, my running motto: STAY GOLD.

All of our super golden sponsors with $50+ donations will receive our BRAND NEW limited edition
Kularts Canvas Tote Bag (estimated delivery: February, 2018)
