Here's the perfect way to end your First Friday festivities: Open Media Foundation will celebrate the fifth anniversary of Denver Open Media at its annual fundraiser. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. tonight at 700 Kalamath Street, and the event includes performances by Total Ghost (as seen at the Westword web awards), awards for the top vote-getters on Denver Open Media over the past five years, and a silent auction.
You can already bid on auction items here, and if you can't make the party, it will be aired live on DOM, Comcast channels 56 and 57, and live-streamed on denveropenmedia.org/livestream.
But the best bet is to show up in person, because this event is the work of a MasterMind winner. And among the brainstorms at the OMF festivities will be an interactive green-screen video greeting card set-up, that will let you make your own video greeting card in the style of Total Ghost:
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
