Teen Writers and Artists Project Fundraiser // T-WAAP Sock Hop!

“We are raising money for our growing organization, as well as showcasing some of the programming that we offer year-round. (We are using “crowdrise” as a platform — here’s the link : ) We have many events throughout the year, such as our weekly “West Suburban Wordplay” a workshop and open mic experience for teens, artistic showcases throughout the year (such as our “Poetry Springs Eternal” event or hosting Buddy Wakefield), and our Creativity sessions that involve workshops in an array of artistic fields. Holding these events do cost money, which is why Teen Writers and Artists Project is hosting this Dance Marathon; to raise funds to keep the organization running and create more events!”

set time: 4 PM, there will also be performances by Adam Gottlieb & One Love, Leah Shoshanah, and Abraham Mellish.

Tourcation kickoff! Magnus Honey & Davey Dynamite w/ Special Guests!
