This past Thursday, DJ Neekola performed at the Liaison Capitol Hill Hotel's rooftop poolside for the Power Bear for Equality party, hosted by Chef Art Smith.
Benefiting both the Human Rights Campaign's Project One America and the DC Center for LGBT Community, the event featured exquisite little bites from Art and Soul as well as gourmet hot dogs, and a fully stocked bar for the cocktail connoisseur!
The event sold over 200 tickets, packing out the pool house rooftop! Pelonkey's very own DJ Neekola very much enjoyed spinning upbeat lounge and house music for all of the guests, eager to grab a second with Chef Art!
The beneficiaries for the evening lay close to Chef Art's heart. The Human Rights Campaign launched Project One America in attempts to bring more equality to the Southern states of the US, where LGBT rights are discriminated against and often times ignored. The DC Center of the LGBT Community is also looking to advance rights in the local city area.
It was a great party, and DJ Neekola can't wait to spin for another amazing event later this month at the Liaison, Chefs Behind Bars, which is benefiting Share Our Strength. Grab your tickets here: http://chefsbehindbars.eventbrite.com, and also look for Neekola's twitter contest, where she will be giving away two free tickets to a lucky winner!
