HI Obehi, Was wondering if you were coming to the fundraiser Saturday?

Info below

Consider this your personal Invite.

 

massmouth is breaking the rule – this is a one-time opportunity to tell your story in costume!  In 2 weeks – Saturday, October 22 – massmouth’s Halloween fundraiser gives you an opportunity to try out a Halloween costume (optional), tell a personal story (optional) and support massmouth (not optional!).

 

 

"Feed The Mouth" Fundraiser is happening October 22nd from 6:30pm-9:00pm, in the community room of massmouth.org offices at The Haymarket Building, 42 Seaverns Ave. Jamaica Plain, O2130.

 Transit: Orange Line Green St. Station (0.2 mi walk) or #39 Bus to Myrtle Street and Centre from Copley Sq, or Seaverns and Centre, from Forest Hills (0.1 mi walk)

 

Our special guest storyteller will be Judith Black, 1st place winner of

massmouth.com Big Mouth Off, 2010.

 

Put your name in the hat for a mini-slam on the theme "spooked".  Bring your 5-minute spine tingling story and you may win a prize.  Wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

 

Tickets are $20.00 and available online at http://www.massmouth.eventbrite.com
