LIVESTRONGbeats – A celebration of cancer survivors

Stop by Waid’s on October 2 to celebrate Livestrong Day at LIVESTRONGbeats, featuring “hardtribaldisco” beats by Diem and breakbeats from Haaps.

The evening will commence with happy hour featuring drink discounts ($3 wells and $2 beers) and half-price dinner delights. Later, dance to Diem and Haaps from 8 PM until midnight.

Also planned: A silent auction benefiting Livestrong and the Lance Armstrong Foundation, and representatives from cancer resources in the Seattle area.

Livestrong Day is planned as the “largest display of support for cancer survivors in history.” Livestrong has a goal to share more than 100,000 messages of support on Facebook and Twitter for cancer survivors, and every message shared means $1 towards support for survivors, because generous donors have pledged to give the Lance Armstrong Foundation $1 per message towards programs and services that directly support people fighting cancer. Supporters can post their personalized message now, and it will be posted to their social account on October 2 as part of a global chorus of support for cancer survivors.

Livestrong is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit committed to helping people face cancer head-on via one-on-one support, cancer information and access to other resources. Their programs also raise funds for cancer research.

Where: Waid’s, 1212 E Jefferson, Seattle, WA 98122

When: October 2, 2012, from 5 PM to midnight

Cost: $5 suggestion donation at the door
