Hi Heather,

I’m not sure if you have an events page or not, but I’m doing a charity event and need all the help I can get to promote it.  Attached is the Press Release and the flier for the event.  In short, the event is a Zombie Crawl, Film Screening of “Night of the Living Dead”, and an after-party.  The donations collected for the event will directly benefit the Food Bank For New York City and their efforts to fight hunger.  If you can spread the word about this Brooklyn event, I’d be incredibly grateful!

New York Shitty does not have an events page— but given the sheer number of press releases I am receiving nowadays I am seriously mulling over erecting one. In any case, there are a number of events benefiting our local food banks (and thus our neediest) in the next couple of weeks and I will endeavor to give each of them a mention. As Allison has mentioned, the Zombie Crawl will kick off at Jamie Campiz Playground on October 30th at 4:00 p.m. From there all interested zombies will head over to indieScreen where they can watch their brethren wreak havoc for a sweet $12.00. There is also an after party slated at The Cove afterward. Check it out!
