Cafe Zoe is holding a party Friday, with a folk band called Folk Atrocity and 18 artists, to raise funds for the arts program at Willow Oaks Elementary School in Menlo Park.

Held in partnership with Get Human Inc., a fundraising nonprofit that hosts music, arts and dance events, the party will run from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, July 14, at Cafe Zoe, 1929 Menalto Ave. in Menlo Park.

There will be trivia games, a silent auction, and barbecue food.

Artists will sell their work, including framed canvas art, jewelry and clothing. They say they'll donate from 20 percent to 100 percent of the night's earnings to the school. Cash donations are welcome, too.

Funds will help pay for art tables at Willow Oaks, a K-8 school in the Ravenswood City School District and located at 620 Willow Road.

Cafe Zoe has a longstanding relationship with the school, says cafe co-owner Zoe Sharkey. The cafe has raised money to help pay for sports uniforms for children whose families can't afford them. Two of the featured artists are teachers at Willow Oaks.
