"There is a season for all things and this is the season for UNITY. On TUESDAY, OCTOBER 29 from 6-9pm, a coalition-building gathering will be hosted by New World Flood and One Love Global at Fahrenheit Ultralounge. We are seeking commitments of TIME, TALENT and TREASURE for children ages 0-25. We hope you and your organization will join us for COLLECTIVE ACTION and IMPACT."
I received a clarification of specifics from Angela, one of the sponsors, per our conversations is below:
No, this is not a community harvest dinner. It is a meeting.
Their goals for the meeting are to (a) create an asset map of all the people and organizations serving our residents aged 0 to 25, breaking it down by what types of activities/services are being offered, when they are offered, where they are offered, to whom, etc. and (b) to connect and build relationship among people and organizations providing these services.
People will eventually be able to provide data on what types of services they are offering via some online mechanism, but they are hoping people will come to the 3 hour meeting to meet each other and learn from each other about what things are going on in the community.
Yes, it is being held at a nightclub since they owner is supportive of this initiative and has volunteered the space. In the past they have had to work around the music, but it sounds like that might not be an issue for this particular meeting.
