Quick reminder that ASSME’s Swag-a-Thon, benefiting Housing Works—is THIS Wednesday, June 24, starting at 7pm, with open bar VeeV Vodka from 7-8pm!! If you haven’t rsvp’ed yet, please do so to [email protected]
Naturally, there’s a catch. The party is a benefit. At the door, you’ll be invited to donate a piece of swag, some branded promotional item you’ve been holding onto for no good reason. That Pets.com onesie? Bring it! Your Dancing With the Stars headband? That too! These items will be raffled, with 100 percent of the proceeds going straight to supporting homeless people with AIDS and HIV. If you don’t bring this swag you will be asked for a $5 donation (which gets you three raffle tickets). Hopefully you’ll be generous and do both. See, everyone wins!
Note: If you have an especially great piece of swag to bring (for instance, ASSME President Aaron Gell has an American Idol gumball machine looking for a good home…with gum!), please email me back right now so we can plan ahead!
Hope to see you there. Details below. Please RSVP to [email protected]
