As the fall season continues here in the beautiful state of Virginia we start to look forward to Thanksgiving. This autumnal holiday has its roots in the 1600′s and not necessarily as positive and loving considering what would soon follow for the natives of the land. Regardless, as all things do this too has evolved into a celebration of what we are thankful for. Well, last year the lovely folks over at Overcoast Music and us decided to put our minds together and celebrate the hard work of those involved with making our world a better place, #GiveThanksRVA was born. Last year was awesome and we look forward to doing it again this year with our latest partner and friends combo. This year we’re excited to announce that Emilio’s will be helping us give thanks to Classical Revolution RVA. If you’re not familiar with Classical Revolution RVA then please do take a moment to check out their many accomplishments. This year they ushered in the first ever Mozart Festival for Richmond, VA and have been playing in bars, parks, museums, and so on to further help support the goal of letting our world be filled with beautiful music, for free. This is a huge undertaking. The musicians, the planning, the posters, the rep, the instruments, the stands, chairs, marketing, operations, and so on. Please join us this year and help give a little love to the hard working people of Classical Revolution RVA that have been generous enough to share their gift of music with the rest of us here in the river city.
Come have a beer, glass of wine, cocktail, whatever… Emilio’s has been kind enough to donate proceeds from the event directly to the 501c3 non profit paper work needed to establish Classical Revolution RVA. Let’s get together and help ensure that the next generation of Richmonders too will be treated to what we get to experience and beyond! Come on down and help us #GiveThanksRVA!
Tuesday Nov 18 – Emilio’s (Broad and Meadow) – 5pm-8pm – happy hour fundraiser
