This Saturday (1/25), Check Out the 1st Annual Activist Ball - Great Party for a Great Cause
There's an event on Saturday evening that we'd like everyone to attend: the 1st Annual Activist Ball. It's a benefit for the encuentro 5 movement space and Occupy Boston Radio - both extremely worthy organizations that can really use your support. Virtually every significant progressive organization in Boston has held some kind of event or function at e5, and many groups - including this publication - have found a home there over the years as well. And OBR, for its part, is an important part of the progressive news ecology in this region.
But seriously, it's going to be a fun party; so you want to be there.
Event details follow ...
