108 lives bushwick party

What better way is there to celebrate (or commiserate) Valentine’s Day than a party? How about a party … that benefits a good cause? Yes, that sounds much better.

This Saturday night, the charity organization 108 Lives (founded by Little Skips part-owner Hector Marcel) has teamed up with Little Skips and Fine and Raw Chocolates to throw a bangin’ Valentine’s Day #BUSHWICKLOVE party at the Fine and Raw factory off the Morgan L stop. There will be wine, champagne, and beer to drink and food by Little Mo.

With a suggested donation of $20 at the door and a lot of amazing raffle prizes, all the proceeds of the event will go to children in Nepal through 108 Lives, who will donate the money on a charity trip to the country later this year. Last year over 300 people came out to support the cause and raised $2,600 that bought school supplies, shoes, and clothing for impoverished families. This year, they hope to establish a medical clinic and educational system in a small mountain village in Nepal called Phulping, where there is no medical care and very little education. So every dollar helps!

Last year’s party was a huge hit, and this year promises to be even better with more dancing and a solid lineup of DJs: Chew Fu, iLLspokinn, and Lauren Flax. Plus, there will be a drawing to win a free trip to Nepal with 108 lives.

Other raffle prizes include: dinner for two at Mominette or Bunna Cafe, gift certificates to Okiway, Little Mo, Gnostic Tattoo, and Bushwick Bark, a coffee package from Little Skips, a haircut from Fringe, a Bushwick Food Co-Op gift, private yoga, fighting, or meditation lesson, a private ayurvedic yoga session with Jacquelyn Autrey, and one week of yoga and dharma classes at the Three Jewels NYC.

In addition to all the raffles, you’ll also be able to get mock-married or get a mysterious kiss in the kissing and photobooth.

The party starts at 8, and I think we can all agree it sounds incredible. So whether you’re coupled up and looking for something fun to do, or single and in need of a good time, stop by the party, support a good cause, and make it rain #BUSHWICKLOVE.
