In the wake of the 2016’s anxiety inducing headlines and 2017's imminent firestorm of fake news and travel bans, some friends and I joined together, pooled our skills and Boston-based resources, and got over our fears of talking on the phone.
It’s here The Wrecking Ball Series was born, a nonprofit organization focused on helping people take a stand and make a positive impact—all while having a good time.
Our first-ever event was held at Aeronaut Brewing Co, a craft brewery and taproom in Somerville, Massachusetts. Through cash donations from tipsy liberals, a raffle of bespoke local goods, and the simple promise of beer, we managed to raiser over $3,000 for Planned Parenthood.
The best part? We’re just getting started. Stay tuned for our next event, when we’ll drink, dance, and raise some cold, hard cash for the Natural Resources Defense Council.
