Unfortunately, due to ever-increasing concerns about the coronavirus pandemic, on March 23, Side by Side made the difficult decision to cancel SHINDIG and err on the side of caution and concern for our larger community’s health. Ultimately, there is no higher priority for us than the safety of our staff, clients and supporters.

Given the uncertainty surrounding the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak, we are electing to cancel rather than try to re-schedule for a different date. Thank you for your understanding and your support of this event and Side by Side in general.


Kick up your heels and raise a glass at Side by Side’s Shindig at the Starline Social Club in Oakland on Thursday, May 14, 2020.

Join us for hosted craft cocktails, chef-curated hors d’oeuvres, music, and a silent auction showcasing the very best of Alameda County. This festive affair raises critical funds for Side by Side’s programs in Alameda County that provide behavioral and mental health counseling, LGBTQ support services, and transitional housing for current and former foster youth.
