Support Poverty Sucks! this SATURDAY!

Hello! Two fantastic women who have really been supportive of all of FiRE’s endeavors (as well as great Pinay Brunchers) are throwing an amazing BENEFIT EVENT! Please support if you are in New York City tomorrow night! 🙂

Poverty Sucks!
This Saturday, November 8th

Do you happen to feel like celebrating this week? Perhaps something, well, exciting has happened, something historic, even? Or perhaps you’re just glad this whole election thang is over. Whatever you’re feeling, Poverty Sucks! is here to help you shake it out this Saturday night, November 8, at The Knitting Factory in TriBeCa. DJ Sistamatik will lay down the beats till sunup, so come get down for a good cause, and enjoy the end of your election angst.

Tickets are only $8, and the doors open at 9pm.
We’ve also got some great auction items, so bring some cash to bid on holiday gifts for your loved ones (or yourself–you deserve it!).
