Streetsblog Fundraiser at the Eco-Village!

your calendars for Friday, April 9, for the first ever L.A. Streetsblog
fundraiser from 6:00 to 9:00 P.M. at the L.A. Eco-Village, 117 Bimini
Place.  Anyone not familiar with the Eco-Village should click on this link
for directions, and note that it’s a couple of blocks away from the
Beverly/Vermont Red Line Station.  The suggested donation is $25, but
feel free to give whatever fits in your budget.

addition to the usual food and drinks mixer; we’ll also be holding a
raffle and celebrating some of the 2009 Streetsie winners: Ted Rogers
of Biking In L.A., the LACBC’s City of Lights program, the Eco-Village
and ArtCycle, with a very brief awards presentation.

host Joe Linton and myself in planning the event on our host committee
are Deborah Murphy, Ivy London, Julia Russell and Ron Milam.

short, this party is going to rock, and we’re going to be surrounded by
cool people, having a good time.  This is really only the second
Streetsblog mixer, after the Baby Shower organized by Jessica Meaney,
so it’s one of best chances you’ll have to meet some of the faces
behind the names.  Maybe we’ll have a prize for the first person to
identify Spokker in real life.  And have I mentioned sponsorship from New Belgium Brewing?  Who doesn’t love Fat Tire beer?

All donations are tax
deductible will be re-invested locally in Los Angeles Streetsblog.  If
you think this sounds great, but it’s a bad day or location…stay
tuned.  There are more planned later in the Spring…

If you’d rather donate online than at the door, make sure to also drop me an email so I can leave a note at the door.
