Diversity Richmond hosting an All Americans Summer Block Party

As the name implies “All” are invited.

Lately there has been more than a little disharmony in the world and our nation. The fear mongering and finger pointing are reaching critical mass on the pressure cooker of life. It’s time to let off a little steam with a party.

Luckily the good folks at Diversity Richmond are here to help us out with their All Americans Summer Block Party.

From Gay RVA:

“This one is a celebration of American diversity, the diversity within our own community, the diversity in the United States,” said Bill Harrison, Executive Director of Diversity Richmond.

All are welcome to attend the inclusive block party, and proceeds from sales will go to benefit the community programs of Diversity Richmond.

“The more money we make with events like this, the more money we can put back in the community,” Harrison said. “Last year we didn’t do grants because our building needed so much work…but this year we’re back and we hope to make this the biggest year that we’ve given out grants thus far.”

There will be all sorts of fun to be had including food trucks, the SO FUN Richmond PhotoBooth craft Beer, wine, gelato and perhaps most importantly karaoke with DJ Amanda Rogers. I say “perhaps most importantly” on the karaoke because everyone that is brave enough to get up and sing will be entered in to win a $500 Mongrel Gift Card. Mongrel is a sponsor and is celebrating 25 years in Carytown, so what better way to celebrate than give away 500 bucks.

Getting back to the fear mongering and finger pointing I mentioned above. There will be a voter registration table so make sure your voice is heard come election time and you’re registered to vote.
