Saturday Super Events!

Jul 25, 2008 by

Saturday is it! A huge date on the calendar during which Rising Tide, Dirty Cost Press and the Big Easy Rollergirls Present:

FYYFF It’s Black and Gold Forever
A Fund-raiser for the Ashley Morris Memorial Foundation

FYYFF- It's Black and Gold Forever


Featuring:
The Big Easy Roller Girls, The Other Planets , Simon Lott, Helen Gillet, Justin Peake , Diamond Kinkade, Fleur de Tease “Nude Is Nice” performance, Supa Saint, Art for sale/auction/raffle by NOLA Rising, T Shirts and gear from Defend New Orleans and illustrious services of emcee Andrew Ward – The Reverend Pysch Ward, who was last seen at O’Dark Thirty in the morning kicking off the NOLA Running of the Bulls.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

You see the fine folks at NOLA Rising have agreed to re-purpose their art party earlier in the day into creating fresh art for the evening to help raise funds. Come by, grab a paintbrush and join in the fun. Ashley Morris loved this city and its community more than words can express. Come and BE a part of that community.

When? Saturday, July 26th, from noon until sunset. Yep, the dog days of summer. No one said living in New Orleans during the summer is nice.

Where? XO Studios in the Marigny. 2833 Dauphine at the corner of Press (right where the train tracks are)

Why? Why not? We love our community, we love to paint, we love to be a part of something that is uniquely New Orleans. You don’t have to be an artist to come and join us. In fact, most of the best talents we’ve discovered had never even picked up a brush in their entire life.

(Proceeds from the raffle and the auction as well as the T-Shirts will be donated by the Morris family to the Ashley Morris Memorial Foundation which will be used to present FYYFF Awards at later dates.)
