DC-based philanthropy startup, Citizen Effect, is celebrating its first anniversary with a benefit concert to support five projects in DC, the U.S. and abroad.
“Crank Up The Cause” is Thursday, Dec. 9 at 6 pm at U Street Music Hall. Tickets are $10. Crank Up The Cause will feature live performances by DJ KC of Fatback, Will Rast and DJ Magnus Magnusson.
All guests will receive a $10 voucher at the door so that they can make a donation to the project of their choice.
Guests can choose to donate to the following causes: Dreams for Kids (DC, USA), Partners of the Americas (Latin America), Earthspark International (Haiti), Catholic Charities of New Orleans (Gulf Coast, USA) and Mekane Yesus Church (Ethiopia).
Organizers promise that your $10 voucher donation gets you a “swanky button” and a drink.
Citizen Effect will be giving away dozens of raffle prizes including a three-day, two- night deluxe package at the Long Dell Inn on Cape Cod, a six-month pass to STROGA, gift baskets from LUSH Cosmetics, and gift certificates to DC favorites including The Reef, Ben’s Chili Bowl, The DINER, Capitol Hemp and more.
