The question of the weekend is: What are you wearing? There are two fundraisers this week where the color of your attire plays a role. Whether you don a dapper black and white ensemble or put it all on red, there are two fabulous events to show off your threads and show your support.
Join Surfrider Humboldt for its holiday party and year in review at Black & White Ocean Night on Friday, Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. at the Arcata Theatre Lounge ($10 suggested donation). Pianist Katie McGourty tickles the ivories and artist Matt Beard does his live painting deal during this evening of dancing, black and white ocean flicks and slideshow and a holiday raffle. Don't forget to wear your best black and white.
Has it been a while since you've partied with the sisters? Put on your red dress or dress red, 'cause the Eureka Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are hosting the Red Dress Red Ball on Saturday, Dec. 2 at 7 p.m. at the The Inn at 2nd & C ($25-$15). The night raises funds for Redwood Giants, a local AIDS Lifecycle bike team that will be riding from San Francisco to Los Angeles to bring awareness about HIV/AIDS. This is an 18-and-over evening of food, drink, silent auction, music and performances, where wearing the color red is a show of compassion and solidarity for those affected by HIV/AIDS.
