(Shameless plug alert. But this is a good one).
Next Monday night in New York, Acumen Fund’s NY Chapter is hosting a fun event.
There will be talks by Chris Hughes (co-founder of Facebook, brains behind my.barackobama.com, now launching Jumo.com); Gretchen Rubin (bestselling author of The Happiness Project); Jawad Aslam (pioneering low-ncome housing in Pakistan and all-around great guy); Sarah Kay (spoken word poet).
Jenny 8 Lee will emcee, and any event that is emceed by someone who is obsessed with dumplings and who wrote The Fortune Cookie Chronicles has to be good.
You can buy tickets here. Proceeds benefit Acumen Fund (further enticements: open bar, DJ, food, etc.)
Please spread the word. And buy tickets here. They’re going fast.
