Big news for In Bed by Ten! Not only am I hosting the first ever Virtual Dance Party on Friday, March 27th from 6-9pm, but I also launched a Patreon today (link in bio)! – First, visit IBBT on Facebook to RSVP for the dance party on Friday; it's a suggested $5 donation to benefit the @sisterspgh412 LGBTQIA Emergency Relief Fund. And be ready to dance at home! – Second, the Patreon! IBBT started in 2015 as a silly idea with a friend and grew into something major; a monthly dance party from 6-9pm that also functions as a fundraiser for local charities. Since IBBT began at Spirit in Lawrenceville, together we've raised over $100,000 for local charities! 100% of the door cover goes directly to the charity of the month, along with a portion of Spirit's bar take for the night. That's right, I don't make any money. This year I was hoping to start being able to make a little money to recoup expenses and pay for my time. Spirit had generously arranged a sponsorship with the good folks at Straub beer for 2020. Obviously, that has been tabled for the time being. I'd like to keep doing these events but it's hard for me to keep at it on a regular basis without making any money. So that's where this Patreon comes in! Back at the $5 level and you'll get a weekly playlist from me on Spotify, each with a different theme, all awesome. Sign up now at the link in my bio and you'll have immediate access to three new playlists (In Bed by Ten Classics, 80s Party, and Disco Inferno), with a new one coming out every Friday. Plus you'll get notifications about upcoming events and a special post where you can make song requests in advance. Thanks for helping keep this viable, and for being a part of In Bed by Ten!
