All Four Good Causes

Thank you again to everyone who came out to last Saturday's Pay to Play Fundraiser for Philippine Typhoon and Flood Relief. Through the evening course of bad music selections and some truly fund producing music choices we raised $750 for the Red Cross. With over 1 million people displaced by this storm, every dollar counts in the the recovery effort.Tonight [wed], LITM is hosting a Typhoon Relief fundraiser from 5pm on. This week also marks LITM's 10 year anniversary. Thursday Night it's Oyster's and Champagne and Super swanky party will be on Saturday Night. I hope to stop by, but I'll may be tied up with a Rock Out for Hudson County CASA Fundraiser at the Lamp Post. The event starts early at 7 pm, with Wolf Juice's DJ Mega Mission, Then Comedienne Meredith RollmanWordsmith Lana Rose DiazSlam Poet Rachel RomanSlam Poet Thomas VanCott aka Saint Patrick. At 8:30 pm Live Music Starts with Drum and a Tantrum9:30 - 10pm Comedian Josh Wells, then 10pm DIYGFY and 11pm Dujuana Sharese Spoken Sound I'm closing down the night at Midnight with a Dance Party.  $10 suggested donation w/ 2 FREE Raffle Tickets and  Over $1,000 worth of prizes.

A Fundraiser for the Human Needs Food PantryOn Monday, we will be raising funds for The Human Needs Food Pantry in Montclair. marking our 23rd Year my Montclair State Brethren the Derelict Garden Tools will host the 23rd Annual Pagan Thanksgiving Feast  at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair. We will cook about 8 Turkeys, 4 Hams and 50 pounds of Mashed Potatoes with Stuffing and Gravy Boat bigger than the QE2. If you have time, make a complimentary side dish, if not no worries we want you to come support the Human Needs Food Pantry. Also no fear Vegetarians, there's always a Tofurkey. 

Through Thanksgiving week, there are plenty of events to remind us all that life's struggle is not a one person journey and that the human spirit is stronger bond that any indifference. You can donate goods to The Urban Mission Church . In addition, The Iron Monkey hosts dinner for over 500 needy neighbors on Thanksgiving. Here's a link to some events from last year, that are most likely hosting events this year. 

Finally, after doing good helping others we all need to let loose and get Wild. And as Thanksgiving Traditions go, I know of no other better reason to [perhaps a little foolishly] invite some friends and soon to be friends over for a good old Fashion House Party. This year's costumed theme is WILD KINGDOM.  Think Royal Safari Adventure and you can get zoo-ed up or be a real princess. As always, have a WILD time but leave your Barbarian Friends at home !!
