I posted some time back about the Invisible Children Tour coming to Pittsburgh in March. Here are details on a benefit event as part of that tour:
Local Organizations, Restaurants, Bands and Artists Team Up for Benefit
On Sunday, March 9, Creative TreeHouse will be hosting an art and music event to benefit Invisible Children, a San Diego-based non-profit organization working in Uganda to encourage the peace process and to educate and rehabilitate former child soldiers.
Doors will open at 6pm for art, food and live music from DJ OCTEEL. Talks by the Invisible Children Roadies and a screening of their Sunday documentary will begin at 7pm. To end the evening, local Pittsburgh musicians The Jim Dandies, Kellee Maize, and Lohio will perform. The cover charge is $10 and for a suggested $10 minimum donation attendees can purchase artwork, prints, or handmade goods from local artists and Invisible Children collaborators.
The evening will also include informational displays from the Univ. of Pitt branch of the Student Global AIDS Project and other local humanity groups. This event is sponsored by Creative TreeHouse, Your Mom’s Indie Department Store, the ONE Campaign, Giant Eagle, Flavorville Cafe, Nakturnal and more to come.
