Save the Date – Friday February 1st
This Friday, February 1st, Honest John’s (488 Selden, Detroit) will be host to a fundraiser for the Capuchin Soup Kitchen.
This event is clearly up my alley, as it involves a little do-goodery and AND books. Alright, and some food and drink. WSU Press has published a book telling the story of those who have benefitted from the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, “My Name is…Portraits and Table Stories from the Capuchin Soup Kitchen”
As can be evidenced by some previous posts of mine, I will no doubt pimp almost any nonprofit event that crosses my path, especially one that showcases a book as beautiful as this one. CSK is an agency that I’ve gotten familiar with in my normal day-to-day do-goodery (aka: my job) and I definitley I can vouch for the amazingness of their programs. The Detroit News article alone had me teary-eyed in my cubicle, and the rest of the book is well worth the $25. Books will be signed at the event and if you don’t have a copy, no worries, you can pick one up there. Honest John’s will be donating the complete proceeds of the first two hours of the night to the Capuchins. Always looking for an opportunity to have you Friday night Budweiser binge go towards a good cause? Then see you Friday. The event starts at 5:00PM
