March 31 happy hour: Let’s reach 201 pledges at Lounge 201!

WHAT: Happy hour to benefit DC’s first mobile farmers’ market
WHEN: Thursday, 31 March from 5-8pm
WHERE: Lounge 201 (201 Massachusetts Avenue, NE), near Union Station/Capitol Hill

ON TAP:

  • Complimentary appetizers featuring local, sustainable beef from Arcadia’s friends at White House Meats
  • Special cocktails made with local spirits

Come and learn about Arcadia’s Mobile Market, bring your friends, and don’t forget a credit card to make a secure online donation to our Kickstarter campaign on one of the on-site laptops. In addition, Lounge 201 has generously agreed to donate a percentage of happy hour sales to support the mobile market.

HELP US GET THIS FOOD BUS ON THE ROAD!
Arcadia’s goal is to raise enough to purchase and retrofit a 25-foot school bus, convert it to run on biofuel, and have the whole shebang up and making market stops and school visits around Washington, DC in early summer 2011. The Mobile Market will be where food is needed — in low-income neighborhoods known as “food deserts” — bringing healthy, local food to the places people naturally gather. And we need YOU to help make it happen!

IT’S ALL OR NOTHING
We need the community to pledge $15,000 by Earth Day (April 22), or no money changes hands and it gets a lot harder for us to get healthy food to folks who need it. Together, we can make this happen!

GIVE WHAT YOU CAN, TELL YOUR FRIENDS
Get yourself a hip bumper sticker for just a $25 donation. Or be the envy of all of your friends as you point out your name artfully painted on the side of the mobile market, which you earned with a $1000 donation.*
