Monday Brain Bang
After Sunday’s epic GAYFACE photo party at The Dunes with star LGBT photog Ashley Kolodner, managed to completely ignore St Patrick’s Day and we are ready for the week ahead.
On Tuesday Josef will be among the panelists who will recommend the DCCAH whatever is to be done about the Lincoln Theater on U Street. Lisa will be there live tweeting probably. Tune in @bitchintweetZ around midday.
LATER THAT EVENING, off, to the premiere screening of Chris Palmer’s Shooting in the Wild, at American University. Along with his film, winners of the eco-comedy short film competition will also be shown one of which may or may not be Lisa’s unicorn documentary/propaganda film, UNICORNICOPIA.
Probably some other things will happen this week but most important will be Saturday’s Leukemia Ball. No, we don’t think its the best name per sé, but this benefit earns millions for blood cancer research each year AND means we get to dress up fancy.
And here’s the fun part:
Our friend here in DC, Creative Director, has given us a table at the Ball, and has charged us with the task of filling it with some clever, social media savvy, formalwear-friendly blood cancer fighting champions. So, we want you to nominate folks that you think will either benefit from getting to go, really deserve a fancy night, or will just keep us entertained through dinner, to win two tickets each to the Ball. Think ER nurses, health activists, folks who have been affected by blood cancer, civil servants, Cinderella, your friend that bought a tux and the engagement is off, someone who knows magic tricks, a unicorn… You get the idea. We’ll choose three winners, so six tickets total are ready for the taking.
Just FYI: these tickets generally go for $1000 each, so this is kindof a big deal for all of us baby philanthropists out there (ahem, Lisa). One small step for (hu)man…
Tweet your nominations @amisunin using #leukemiaball, and our 3 favorite noms will each get two tickets to join us at the ball this Saturday: reception, dinner, performances from Dana Carvey and Jim Balushi, dancing, and all the black-tie Pollywood benefit glitz you can handle. Follow @amisunin for winning announcements Wednesday, and email Lisa (firstname.lastname@example.org) with all your questions.
BONUS ROUND: if you are a designer and use Dribbble, the first person to offer CD an invite gets two tickets automatically. Apparently those invites are pretty popular.
NOW GET BACK TO WORK!
