Party for a Cause on New Year’s Eve

It’s okay you can admit it – still no set New Year’s Eve plans with less than 36 hours to go until the big ball drop?

You’re not alone.

Dress up or dress down?
Friend group A or friend group B?
House party, rock show or club insanity?

Ugh. Decisions. Rough lives we live.

While I’m confident that you’ll end up at the perfect party strategically positioned next to that perfect someone right at the stroke of midnight, I thought it would be good to call attention to a great opportunity to party…with a purpose.

A friend recently called my attention to great NYE event going on in Seattle called Party for Literacy. The gist? Come out, have fun, raise money for Seattle Public Library’s fantastic Homework Help volunteer tutoring program.

Fantastic location? Check.
Fantastic tunes? Check.
Fantastic adult beverages? Check.
Seattleites decked out in their finest threads (no, this doesn’t simply mean upgrading to your new North Face jacket)? Check.
Proceeds from the night benefiting an excellent program? Check.

Help keep Seattle one of the most literate cities and The Most charitable city around. Hop over, grab a ticket and help ring in the New Year while doing good.

Wherever you end up this NYE, be safe, grab a cab or a DD, work those moves like Jagger, make sure to sneak a good kiss with the cute guy or girl next to you and cheers to a great 2012.
