Know that warm and fuzzy feeling you get when you do something good to benefit your community, the less fortunate, or your neighbor’s weird-ass kid? Couple that with the hot and sweaty satisfaction of partying hard and you’ve got the definition of my newest venture: raising funds for worthwhile charities while having a blast. What the hell am I talking about you ask? Well, any of you who’ve
been smart enough to attend attended Eyes Wide Shut within the past three years should know that a major part of it has become about giving back to the DC metropolitan community. Thanks to your overwhelming support, this year’s edition was the most well-attended ever, meaning that together we were able to raise and donate $1000 to Life Pieces to Masterpieces (LPTM).
Talking to LPTM’s leaders about the significant impact they anticipate the donation will have on the organization’s operations got me to thinking
: what if we were to create opportunities to raise funds for the less fortunate all year round? And just like that, the Partying For A Cause (PFAC) movement was born.
As I kinda already mentioned, the concept behind PFAC is to offer amazing events that will raise funds for strategically selected charities based in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Within the next few months my aim is that each PFAC event raises $1000 for each featured charitable organization. I still have to finalize the number of charities I plan on hosting events for, but the good news is that I already have the first event and its featured organization lined up!
And I couldn’t think of a better time to launch this community give-back program than Thanksgiving. So on Wednesday November 27, 2013, the night before the Thanksgiving holiday, come experience the joy of giving back at Euphoria, the unofficial launch of PFAC with proceeds benefiting SOME (So Others Might Eat), an interfaith, community-based organization that exists to help the poor and homeless of our nation’s capital!
Know that second chance
you asked your ex for most of us have needed at some point in life? Well my new philanthropic approach is gonna begin by allowing Tuscana the chance they’ve been begging for to make up for all their EWS 9 fcuk-ups slip-ups. Best believe that this undeniably gorgeous venue is going to step it’s game up this time with way more Johnnie, way more bartenders, and way way waaaaaaayyyyyy less waiting in long-ass lines…at least for ticket holders. Oh, and we’re going til 3 a.m. That’s right bishes, we’re partying on a Wednesday like it’s the weekend!
Oh, and did I mention that Private Ryan’s going to be present
even if I have to swim with him here on my back? So you know the soundtrack to this event is going to be crazy! Include myself and DJ Majestic, a later than usual finish AND the fact that the next day is the most celebrated holiday in the US and I think it’s safe to say that we have an epic night in the making right here!
So what are you waiting on? Do your good deed for the Thanksgiving season and organize your Euphoria ticket today! Of course you can still go serve at a soup kitchen, have a clothing drive for the homeless, or make a charitable donation…just remember
to buy your Euphoria ticket first that attending Euphoria is an awesome way to reach out to the less fortunate AND tu rn up LOUD at the same damn time!
