Lots of organizations have probably asked you to donate tomorrow on "Giving Tuesday." But this week, you can support Streetsblog Chicago by attending our holiday party and fundraiser on Thursday, December 3, along with our friends from Moxie, an LGBT meet-up group for urban planning and public policy professionals. Here’s the skinny:
If you can’t make it to the party, please do consider making a tax-deductible gift to Streetsblog Chicago via our Public Good donation page. Reader contributions make up roughly a third of our funding, so your contribution will be crucial if we're going to keep SBC rolling in 2016. Thanks for your support!
El Morro is a cozy, LGBT-friendly pub in the heart of the Hermosa community. We’ll also holding a raffle featuring items from Armitage Avenue business, as well as great prizes donated by local bike stores and copies of former transportation commissioner Gabe Klein’s new book "Start-Up City." Raffle tickets will be available for sale for $5 each or four for $15.
Joining us to promote commerce on the Armitage corridor will be 35th Ward Alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa, who will be making remarks at 7:15. The party will conclude with a fun performance by two of El Morro’s talented female impersonators at 7:45, but Steven Vance and I will be hanging out at the bar until at least 9 p.m.
