Good Friends: what started as a simple listening party continues to evolve, blossoming into a week-long fundraiser to support ACLU + Planned Parenthood. Maddison Murphy put out a benefit compilation of independent recording artists called "Good Friends Volume 2" on her label, Puppy Teeth Records, in the spring of 2017. Our friends at Ace Hotel generously offered to host a release party, and the small-scale charity raffle we imagined to coincide with the event took off and now comprises 50+ of some of NYC's finest makers and doers.
100% of raffle ticket proceeds will be donated to these two nonprofits that are committed to doing good things. With the help of friends across food, clothing, film, music, and health & beauty industries, we are gladly hosting a weeklong fundraiser: the Good Friends Charity Raffle, featuring goods from some of the best local & NYC-based vendors - participate in-person and online!
Our launch party coincided with the start of summer and took place at the iconic Ace Hotel New York on Tuesday, May 30. We celebrated the release of "Good Friends Volume 2," a lovingly curated benefit compilation (also supporting ACLU + Planned Parenthood) released by Maddison Murphy on her label, Puppy Teeth Records. DJs Liam Benzvi and Theodore Jahng played eclectic dance gems all night.
Winning tickets for the Good Friends Charity Raffle will be drawn at our closing party, taking place at Secret Project Robot in Brooklyn on June 18th, 2017.
In the meantime, the charity raffle continues online and tickets can be purchased here.
