THIS JUST IN! Downstairs from 9 to 10:30pm, Project HOPE Art will be hosting the second installment of the Bay Area Arm Wrestling Ladies (BAAWL) tournament, a raucous performance-based women's arm wrestling competition that is guaranteed to be OVER THE TOP. BAAWL arm wrestlers are strong, rowdy women who toe the line between theatrical antics and hardcore athleticism. Each wrestler has an
outrageous costumed persona, which she can work to her advantage by winning the adoration and dolla bills of the crowd. Wrestlers compete tournament-style in matches of sudden death elimination.
WANNA WRASSLE? All female-identified persons age 21 and up are welcome to participate. For more information, or to compete in the tournament, please fill out the form here: http://projecthopeart.org/ladies-arm-wrestling-tournament/
$10-20 sliding scale, 21+
All proceeds to benefit the following organizations working to improve the lives of the people of Haiti. Several members and friends of Brass Tax are a part of, or have worked directly with, one or more of these organizations, and we are happy to answer any questions you may have about them, or help you get involved - come visit the info table at the event!
Project HOPE Art
"Project HOPE Art uses art as a vehicle to inspire, educate and create intentional whimsy. We work with children in hospitals, orphanages, schools and communities in disaster stricken areas, utilizing art to help establish self esteem, self expression, self respect and stress relief for our students. We create art for art's sake, while educating through our art, science, nutrition and literacy programs. We twirl in tutus and face paint because it's good for the soul. Since our inception in January 2010 we have made seven trips to Haiti and have recently launched a Visiting Artist Program, creating a sustainable way for artists in any medium to share their creativity with our kids and project partners as we strive towards our mission to inspire, heal and improve the quality of life for children in need."
"Haiti Communitere operates the Sustainability Resource Center in Port au Prince. Located walking distance from the international airport our center works as a hub for international groups to launch pilot projects, manage on the ground projects and network with other similarly focused in country groups. We pride ourselves in lowering overhead costs while redistributing revenue back to Haitian initiated projects.
Our Community Liaison works directly with community groups finding driven members of their community that just need that extra something to make their idea a reality. Working together is the only way we are able to assure our resource center and our community assistance programs address the actual needs and desires of beneficiaries."
"Ti Kay, Inc. is a medical non-profit organization that aims to treat, and hence prevent, tuberculosis in Port Au Prince, Haiti. Based at the General Hospital in Port-au-Prince HUEH, (L'Hôpital de l'Université d'Etat d'Haïti), work focuses on treating inpatients and outpatients. After the earthquake when the state sanatorium was not functional, the head nurse of the TB program and Megan Coffee, a US doctor, established an inpatient program for the care. The outpatient treatment was expanded after the earthquake.
Ti Kay supplements the work of the state hospital and nurses by providing an on-site medical doctor and additional nursing care, as well as ensuring that all care is free to both inpatients and outpatients. The PNLT (National TB program) provides all TB medications free to patients, the hospital's PEPFAR-funded HIV clinic provides free HIV medications, and the state run hospital provides many other medications and has provided food and oxygen. Many additional medications and supplies, as well as facility costs, and food and oxygen, are bought with the work of Ti Kay. Donations made to Ti Kay go directly to providing essential care for patients, including oxygen for critically ill patients and food supplements for malnourished patients."
