First, the date! LUEWWD XIII will be on Saturday, October 3rd at 9:00 (doors open at 8:00)
Second, we’re moving! That’s right, we’ve literally grown out of our space at our faithful host venue, Social Games and Brews. So our friends at Triangle Brewing Company have offered to host LUEWWD XIII.
Third, the theme! Since this next event is our 13th and it’s in the month of October, we would like if we may, take you on a strange journey to… LUEWWD XIII: Rocky Horror LUEWWD Show. Those of you who remember life before cell phones and cable TV should remember this cult classic. Those of you who don’t know what we’re talking about, stay tuned for an opportunity to find out at a special film viewing event in September (details to follow!).
Fourth, the beneficiary! The most important detail and the moment you’ve all been waiting for… Cribs for Kids is the LUEWWD XIII beneficiary! Cribs for Kids Durham (a program of Welcome Baby operating with Durham County Cooperative Extension) provides new Pack ‘n Plays to families that do not have a safe place for their baby to sleep. Along with a new Pack ‘n Play, Cribs for Kids shares safe sleep strategies in an effort to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). The program relies on private donations, small community grants, and fundraising events to purchase Pack ‘n Plays. As they approach their 5th year of distribution they have raised nearly $40K and distributed over 500 new Pack ‘n Plays! We are so excited to partner with Cribs for Kids and Welcome Baby and hope that we can make a significant contribution to their already impressive 5-year fundraising efforts!
