Don’t know what you’re doing this Saturday night? If want to get your groove on at a flashy dance party while contributing to a good cause, then come on down to “Replay, Back to the Eighties” at Onyx, 852 5th Avenue in downtown San Diego, hosted by Philanthro Productions.
The party starts at 9pm and doesn’t stop til 2am. Tickets are $15 online or $20 at the door. Philanthro Productions will donate all net proceeds to Outdoor Outreach, a nonprofit organization that helps the underprivileged youth.
The Onyx Room is one of many trendy spots in the downtown San Diego scene. For one special night, Onyx will be transformed into the ultimate 80s flashback, complete with 80s cover band RadioStar bringing your favorite hits back to life, along with DJ Kray-Z-K and Electronic Prophet spinning the hottest dance music all night long.
There will also be delicious happy hour priced 80s-inspired cocktails to wet your appetite and get you ready for a long night of partying for a cause. Be sure to add your name to the guest list and get there early for a hosted bar with acai spirits complimentary of Veev. The drinks will begin to pour at 9pm and continue only as long as the supply lasts.
In addition to the hosted bar, discounted drink specials, and live music, guests will receive complimentary gifts from sponsors such as Inkhead.com and Vickie Lavanty Salon. There will also be a silent auction and raffle tickets available for a chance to win some awesome prizes.
“Replay, Back to the Eighties” is the latest event to be hosted by the San Diego Chapter of Philanthro Productions to raise money for a good cause. This group is not just a production company or a nonprofit; it is unique. Their mission is to get more young adults involved in charity by eliminating the trade off between having fun and giving back. They host first-rate parties in partnership with leading nonprofits, and strive to bring together San Diego’s young adults with well-established charities who are looking for the next generation of philanthropic leaders.
Philanthro Productions advocates having fun and going out with friends while donating your time and money to good causes—you don’t have to give up one to do the other! They aim to increase awareness as well as raise money for charities around the world, and to of course make philanthropy fun.
In September, Philanthro Productions in San Diego hosted “Urban Oasis” at the W Hotel. 100% of funds, which added up to over $5,000, were donated to Planet Cancer, a nonprofit support network for young adults diagnosed with Cancer. Philanthro Productions also operates chapters in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The three chapters combined have raised nearly $160,000 for partner charities.
The benefits of “Replay, Back to the Eighties” will go to Outdoor Outreach, a nonprofit organization that utilizes comprehensive outdoor programs and activities to empower at-risk and underprivileged youth to make positive, lasting changes in their lives. They support the underserved youth in San Diego County who are at risk for school dropout, substance abuse, violence and unintended pregnancy.
Outdoor Outreach is one of just a few agencies in the country, and the only in San Diego, that utilizes outdoor physical experiences to provide youth with the support, relationships, resources and opportunities they need to become successful adults. Since it’s founding in 2001, Outdoor Outreach has taken 3,500 youth on over 1,000 outings, including rock climbing, snowboarding, surfing, snorkeling, mountain biking and backpacking.
So come support Outdoor Outreach by joining Philanthro Productions in this night of dancing, entertainment, philanthropy and fun—80s style. Who doesn’t love rocking out to 80s music under a blacklight? You can even dress the part if you feel so inspired; or come showing some skin and have on site body painters finish your look.
Break out your leg warmers, parachute pants, fanny packs and spandex and we’ll see you there! Click here to get on the guest list and be sure to invite your friends to this dy-no-mite event. If you cannot make it to the event, you can still help with a totally rad donation.
