Netting $ for a great cause

No plans tomorrow evening? Check out Nothing But Nets happy hour at Skye Lounge.
The Nothing But Nets happy hour coincides with the upcoming World Refugee Day (June 20th.) A child dies from malaria every 30 seconds in Africa; a sad reality that you can do a small part to prevent. The $10 cover buys one mosquito net for a child (and yourself a cocktail.)
Hosted by; Katherine Kennedy, Kate Marie Grinold, Angie Goff, Philippe Lanier, Ivan Carter, Jasmine Alexis and Steve Chenevey.

Nothing But Nets is the United Nations campaign to aid the spread of malaria throughout Africa; altogether the campaign has collected 2,722,977 mosquito nets.
The city of DC recently committed to raising enough funds to send 10,000 bed nets to refugees in Africa through the UN Refugee Agency.
If you cannot attend tomorrow, be sure to check out other way to can assist those in need here.
