fundraiser for the orphans of crossing borders

All right, New York readers. Another event for a great cause... My friend Jessica Ko, a previous Angry Reader of the Week, is throwing a birthday party/Fundraiser for the Orphans of Crossing Borders, a nonprofit organization that aids North Korean refugees in China. The event is this Friday, July 31 at Hudson Terrace in New York. Read on for details:
Fundraiser for the Orphans of Crossing Borders

Friday, July 31, 2009
6:00pm - 9:00pm
Hudson Terrace
621 West 46th Street btwn 11th and 12th Avenues
New York, NY

What better way to spend a beautiful summer evening (and help me celebrate my birthday) than to raise money and awareness for North Korean orphans on the Rooftop Garden Lounge at Hudson Terrace! All you have to do is show up and have a drink on us!

As many of you had seen on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," our founder, Mike Kim, was asked "Is your organization able to keep going?" And we can only reply "yes" with your support.

$20 admission at the door (just say you're there for "Crossing Borders").
Complimentary drink included.
Reduced Happy Hour prices.


You MUST put all subsequent drink/food orders on the “CROSSING BORDERS" TAB from the server and at the bar, but GIVE THE CASH (plus tip) TO ONE OF THE CROSSING BORDERS STAFF.

There will be two stations, one where you can pay for drinks/food and another for donations. We won't have credit card machines, so be sure to have plenty of cash on you. Thanks so much for cooperating with us!)

All proceeds will be benefiting Crossing Borders' orphanages, going towards the orphans' clothing, food, school supplies, tuition, medical bills, etc.
So make your plans, and bring a friend. It's a nice way to spend a summer evening, enjoy a drink, and kick off the weekend. And best of all, it's for a great cause. To learn more about the event, and to purchase tickets, go here.
