Raul brought this to my attention and asked if I could share it with you, my lovely readers:

For more information please contact Social Chair Public Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be a fashion show, a glass of wine for the first 100-150 people or so, some canapés, drink specials (martinis for $5.00) and more importantly, the ticket cost ($20) all goes to Out in Schools, an organization that , through “bringing queer films to local high schools to facilitate discussion with youth on bullying, homophobia and stereotypes,[…] give[s] youth a safe space to explore these issues. [They] aim to increase understanding through education to combat the issues threatening the safety of our classrooms for all students.”
I can’t go due to a prior engagement, but if you can, I think it will be a good time and it is raising money for an excellent cause. You can get tickets at Event Brite.
