Growing in Jersey City has teamed up with It's All Love USA run by DJ Marvilous to bring you a fundraiser to celebrate the summer, raise money for local charities, and thank Chris Christie for shutting the New Jersey Government down over July 4th. The fabulous BUBBALA will be emcee the day with lots of jokes and pizzaz and a whole lot of sass.
Who is this shin dig benefiting? York Street Project and Women Rising.
We are working on finding a drug program (TBD) because that is the reason the government was shut down and we do want to support the #1 rising drug issue in the country.
So how are we celebrating?
