TWO adventurous women

ONE inappropriate Rickshaw

TWO THOUSAND miles across India



Charlie and I will stumble across India this April as a part of the Rickshaw Run to raise $15,000 to bring 750 people clean water.

I don’t get to NYC that often, but when I do I like to make a big impact!  I’m throwing a great party with my Rickshaw Run teammate, Charlie, and I would love for you to be there.  This is your chance to learn more about the Rickshaw Run, learn about the global water crisis and how we are going to impact it, bid on and win travel gear, bid on amazing art, drink wine, socialize with a cool crowd in NYC, and meet Charlie and me in person.

Why do you want to meet us?  Because we will rock your world.  Do you need any more than that?  It will be fun, boozey, arty, with the right amount of insane and a ton of bad-ass!

Be prepared, we will be asking you for money – but you’ll get some great stuff in return in our silent auction and raffle (besides our undying gratitude and the warm fuzzies of knowing you are a good person for helping people around the globe).
