Help schools overseas with Pencils of Promise at Local 16 on June 13


Here's a nice-sounding event coming up at Local 16 for Pencils of Promise  a group which helps build schools overseas. The event is this Thursday, and here's more. And despite the acronym, it doesn't seem to be affiliated with any similarly-named blogs.
The PoP DC Leadership Council, with co-host HyperVocal, is holding their first fundraising event and launch party on Thursday, June 13, 2013, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on the roof deck at Local 16 on U Street. Attached is our save the date, and below our eventbrite link. popdcs2013.eventbrite.com 
We are very excited to host our first event in the District, with the goal of raising enough funds to build one classroom within the year through several events. The $25 ticket price of our first happy hour correlates to the cost of educating one child for one year through Pencils of Promise.  
Happy Hour specials will be available through the duration of the event, and attendees will be entered into a raffle with a variety of prizes, including Wolf Trap tickets.
