Hang out with Dave Eggers to benefit 826DC this Friday

It's time for a Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Philanthropy. Author Dave Eggers, who founded the 826 organization, will be at a fundraiser for 826DC this Friday. The event is at the Dunes gallery at 14th and Meridian, upstairs from The Getaway. The event is only $20. Here's where you can purchase tickets, and below is more info. There's also music from a member of Bluebrain and beer from Lagunitas Brewery.

If you aren't familiar with 826DC, it's a non-profit that tutors kids in reading and writing, and also runs the cool Museum of Unnatural History to help fund their activities. You can get involved too.

Eggers founded it and there are branches around the country. Here's a post I wrote when the Museum first opened.
