Camp Highlight's Mad Hatter Tea Party
Saturday, June 18, 2016
Prospect Park Carousel (map)
Near the intersection of Flatbush Ave and Empire Blvd
Get ready to fall down the rabbit hole with Camp Highlight! For our 3rd annual semi-formal, we are having a Mad Hatter Tea Party! Meet us at the Carousel in Prospect Park (near the intersection of Flatbush and Empire) for light refreshments while enjoying the musical stylings of Plastiq Passion! The staff, campers, and families of Camp Highlight will be in attendance. Party attendees will have unlimited carousel rides! This is a family friendly event.
If a child from an LGBTQ family wants to attend Camp Highlight, we do not want finances to be a barrier. Our annual semi-formal raises money for our Campership Fund which helps bring children to Camp Highlight. Proceeds from this event go to the Campership Fund! You can also buy a raffle ticket to win great prizes! If you cannot make the event, please consider making a donation! Help us make dreams come true!

ABC No Rio (map)
156 Rivington Street
New York , NY 10002
Back by popular demand after a successful premiere last year, (Up)rooted (Up)rising Vol 2 comes to you to bring local and underground music, art, and cultural critique in New York City to raise funds to bring the Lumad leaders (indigenous people) from the Philippines to the US to speak about militarization, environmental destruction and resistance.
Come join us as we sing, dance, shout and make art about resisting state repression and dismantling capitalism, imperialism, and patriarchy!
With performances from (ongoing updates):
Material Support - A Filipina-fronted political punk band from Queens, NY. Made up of law students and Filipino migrants who are agitated by state repression, government corruption and patriarchy.
Listen to Material Support's debut at the New York famed ABC No Rio here: http://materialsupport.bandcamp.com/
Plastiq Passion - Made up of the enigmatic Jessica Chaos on vocals, the quiet but wise Deborrah Sanchez on lead guitar, the rather tall Christine Simon on bass, and the animal Stacey Lee on drums. Collectively they have a goal to play every single rock venue in America (and also the world) including, but not limited to, your basement. So keep a look out for these four hardcore momma-jamma’s and don’t mess with them, because they have a black-belt in bar stools.
