Life Tree ‘Erection’ Party and Fundraiser!

Come join us, as we try and ‘erect’ the Life Tree and hold our very last, (and very last minute) fundraiser to help us bring the Life Tree to the Playa!
There will be food, a BBQ, a Keg and lovely beats all found at the blue house on 7th ave off Commercial Drive.

We’ll be selling t-shirts, buttons, and Dan Royer’s famous Draw Bot pictures!

Also: Between 1pm – 6pm we will be holding one of our very last build parties. We need some help to paint the leafs of the structure many different colours, and we may even need your help to hoist this beast upward to the sky! So come by, enjoy some sun, and then stay for the party under the tree.

Drink: $10 – Unlimited access to the keg!
Food: Potluck appetizers!
Bring a potluck dish for $2 off your keg cup!
Please RSVP so we can estimate attendance properly! 🙂
