The beginning of December heralds a flurry of invitations to various holiday parties, but few events promise to be as beneficial to your karma as the annual Jobs with Justice Scrooge Party.
Throughout the year, the Central Indiana chapter of JwJ fights to achieve equality and fair conditions in local work places. They have helped organize rallies around the region » like last month's protest against the downtown Hyatt hotel's refusal to allow their workers to decide whether or not to unionize — and have proven themselves to be a driving force for social justice.
The Scrooge Party, which is being hosted in the same vein of social activism, includes a tribute to those city officials, politicians and businesses deemed less than worker-friendly, a la Bob Crachett's plight working for Mr. Scrooge. More importantly, the event also serves as an excellent way to become involved with the organization and help raise funds for the coming year. It also features the added bonuses of food, fun, and a silent auction. Proceeds from ticket sales and the silent auction will benefit JwJ, allowing the group to continue to speak for those who cannot.
The party takes place on Dec. 10 at the National Association of Letter Carriers Branch 39 (2211 E 54th St.), at 6 p.m.
Tickets for dinner are $20 per person or $180 for a table of ten. To purchase tickets, visit www.centralindianajwj.org/scrooge.
