Need something to do? Pop up events offer safe, fun spaces for teens TONIGHT
The teen scene will be hopping in Sacramento on Friday, March 1 as non-profits host fun, safe “Pop Up” events all over the city thanks to a $300,000 funding commitment from Comcast.
At the request of Mayor Darrell Steinberg, the City Council recently allocated another $350,000 for the program, which will keep the youth Pop Up events going through at least the end of June. Sierra Health Foundation is administering the program, which builds on the success of the City’s existing Hot Spots. There will also be several Hot Spots running this Friday.
