Ain't no party like a non-profit party

Got a cause you're passionate about? Put your money (and your booty) where your mouth is. On September 17, Between Boutique Cafe & Lounge in Wicker Park hosts the inaugural Music is the Weapon -- a party for local non-profit organizations. DJ Limbs and Man-O-Wax will provide the hip-hop, funk and house beats, while guests mingle and learn about the featured organizations. Here's why your support is important: 15 percent of the bar proceeds (usually the DJ's cut) from the night will go directly to the organization that brings in the most people.

Participating organizations for the first installment include Connect 4ce, which combines hip-hop and youth development, En Masse, a collective of Chicago creatives and Original Change Project, founded last year at Rush University to help non-profits be more effective. Know of an NPO that'd be a great fit for future events? Contact DJ Limbs (aka Victor Carreon) at djlimbs@gmail.com for more info -- participating orgs get a table/booth to hand out materials/make connections, plus free booze.
