(SAN DIEGO) FlawLes has announced its second annual marquee experience; The Tie Party, will take place on Saturday, January 23, 2010 at Wonderhaus, the iconic Wonder Bread factory building in the Ballpark District of Downtown San Diego.
In an expression of a community tied together for equality, bound by their efforts in pursuit of equal rights, FlawLes presents this celebration to benefit Equality California -- the state's chief LGBT civil rights and advocacy organization.
The themed party asks participants to put on a tie -- a simple emblem of unity and the composite strength of a community whose ambitions are fixed together in solidarity. The evening will be captured on film and distributed internationally in an effort to continue to inspire and increase awareness on behalf of equality for all.
"We are so excited to host the The Tie Party, which has become our movement’s landmark event," said FlawLes Executive Director, Talonya Geary. "This year’s spacious venue -- the industrial Wonderhaus factory downtown -- is expressive of the exponential growth and momentum of the last year, and our community’s collective efforts to roll up our sleeves and get involved in this impassioned campaign for civil rights. All are invited, so please join us as we make history together."
Doors open at 6 p.m. for an exclusive VIP cocktail reception. An Equality California guest presentation follows at 7 p.m. and D.J. performances begin promptly at 8 p.m. Live entertainment including dance performers and drummer Emily O’Bannon (recently featured on Glee) uncork throughout the night.
