On Friday, February 6th, I have the pleasure of joining forces with an awesome group of women to co-host the highly-anticipated “Ladies Love…Turn it Up” fundraiser in Brooklyn, NY. Here’s the skinny:
Ladies Love NYC is partnering with the Lupus Foundation of America’s New Jersey Chapter to raise awareness and funds for lupus during an unforgettable evening of art, music and education. Bringing together a never-before-seen cultural collective some of New York’s most influential women, the event will pay homage to artists such as J. Dilla, Michael Jackson and Seal, who have suffered from lupus.
The Ladies Love NYC Lupus Fundraiser and Tribute event will take place on Friday, February 6th, 2009, from 10 pm – 3 am at Deity Lounge, 386 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn. Admission is $10 with RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. A portion of the event’s proceeds will be donated on behalf of Ladies Love NYC to the Lupus Foundation of America’s New Jersey Chapter.
“We are extremely honored to partner with Ladies Love NYC for this meaningful event,” said Dianna Beck-Clemens, Interim CEO and President, Lupus Foundation of America, New Jersey Chapter. “With over 1.5 million Americans diagnosed with lupus, the chances of you or someone you know and love being affected by the disease are considerably high. Events like this serve as a vital force in our organization’s ongoing fight against the disease.”
As an avid J. Dilla fan and a sucka for a good cause, there’s no way I could have denied the opportunity to be a part of this magical evening. If you’re in the New York metropolitan area, I hope to see your lovely face. Nothing beats a party with a purpose!
