We found out about an opportunity to support Worcester's finest asset, da Kidz + couldn't pass it up. Friday 4th February 2011 the Worcester Educational Development Foundation, Inc. is hosting “A PRELUDE TO MARDI GRAS” at the Worcester Center for Crafts from 5pm to 8pm. WEDF, Inc. has invited local artists to create a mask to be auctioned off to raise funds for projects in Worcester schools. We decided participating in this event was a better farewell to the city we have called home for the past 4 years. We plan to be at this event so if you can guess who we are don't hesitate to say, 'What up?!'.
In case you are wondering yes, it is a Guy Fawkes mask, spray painted green, lovingly hand painted with our 508 Luv icon + cable ties for hair? horns? ticklers?
WHO LOVES YA WORCESTER?
