Screw Black Friday! Celebrate BLK Tuesday, and help BLKHRTS feed folks for Thanksgiving
Black Friday is at hand. And while we've all come to begrudgingly accept the fact that this annual fateful day unofficially serves as the kickoff of the holiday season, there's a new tradition being started by some local faves that's far more worth getting excited about. Here's BLK Tuesday, a day in which you can help spread some goodwill in the community rather than trampling your fellow man in the name of securing the ultimate hookup. On Tuesday, BLKHRTS will be helping feed 300 kids from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Denver and their families, and they could use some help.
The band is slated to help serve dinner this Tuesday, November 26, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Jack A Vickers Boys and Girls Club located in the Nancy P. Anschutz Center, 3333 Holly Street in Park Hill. BLKHRTS was looking for a way to do something meaningful for the community, and this dinner provides the perfect opportunity to give back. Turns out the BLKHRTS aren't all black.
"This Thanksgiving event means a lot to us because we have strong ties to this neighborhood," says King FOE. "In fact, I used to live nearby, and I know how impactful this organization is on the lives of our young people. We are grateful we are able to volunteer our time and do something positive for our friends and neighbors."
If you'd like to volunteer to help, simply complete this survey for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Denver by tomorrow, and the folks at BGCMD will follow up with you. Volunteers will need to be on hand at 4 p.m. to help set up and then serve. Give 'em a shout. Meantime, enjoy the new BLKHRTS video above, and catch the group tonight at the Ogden Theatre with Yelawolf and Hopsin.
