Party for a better future with Philanthro Productions
Mark your calendars. On February 20, 2010 from 5-9pm Philanthro Productions will be throwing their next event—Elevate — at Side Bar in downtown San Diego. The event is your chance to eat, drink and mingle while supporting a good cause at one of downtown’s hottest bars.
It’s only $12 if you’re on the guestlist and $15 at the door. The price of admission includes complimentary appetizers and desserts, including pizza by Ciro’s Pizzeria and cupcakes by Cups La Jolla and Cupcakes Squared. Not only will there be free food, but you’ll be eligible for happy hour specials at Side Bar and you’ll be able to stay for free for the rest of the night.
For one night only, Sidebar will feature a specialty cocktail called “Friendz with Benefitz.” The drink was crafted specifically for the night and a portion of proceeds go directly to charity.
Elevate begins at 5pm and lasts until 9pm. Attendees of the event are then free to stay at Sidebar as it turns into a poppin’ Saturday night party—without having to pay additional cover charge. So bring your friends to mix, mingle and eat, and then party after!
All net proceeds will go to Y-FRIENDz Mentoring Children of Prisoners Program, a program of YMCA Youth and Family Services. The Y-FRIENDz program, which began in 2004, has successfully paired children of incarcerated parents with mentors who provide guidance, encouragement and a listening ear. These mentors provide meaningful support for these children and help guide them into becoming healthy, happy, and productive adults.
Elevate will be a great opportunity to network and mingle with like-minded individuals. And of course, like all of Philanthro Productions’ events (Replay: Back to the 80s and Urban Oasis), it will be a lot of fun. In addition to the free food and cheap drinks, there will be a raffle, silent auction, and a belly dancing performance.
Philanthro Productions is a non-profit organization whose mission is to get more young adults involved in charity. They eliminate the trade-off between going out with friends and giving back by creating unique opportunities for charitable giving. This all-volunteer organization hosts first-rate social events in partnership with leading non-profits, while staying committed to transparency and efficiency in fundraising. Since its founding in 2007, Philanthro Productions has launched chapters in San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco, which together have raised nearly $170,000 for partner charities.
Come join the fun at Elevate. Not only will you be supporting a charitable cause, you’ll get the chance to network, make friends, eat, drink, and party. Party for a better future with Philanthro Productions on February 20th. What more could you want on a Saturday night?
