Mark Your Calendars: Richmond Zine Fest Fundraiser, June 22nd @ Rumors

Come One, Come All… to Shop for a Cause!

Rumors1editThe Cause: Richmond Zine Fest

The Place: Rumors @ 404 North Harrison Street

The Time: June 22nd, 4pm-7pm

Need a reason shop? Planning to treat yourself regardless? Reduce your shopping guilt by helping Richmond Zine Fest raise funds as you purchase items at Rumors. From 4pm until 7pm on June 22nd, we will receive a percentage of the cost of items sold.  Richmond Zine Fest will also have items available for purchase, such as zines and patches and more! We hope to see you there!

Full disclosure: All proceeds for Richmond Zine Fest go toward the cost of renting the space for the annual event held on October 8th at the GCCR as well as publicity costs and other fees (printing posters, copying flyers, etc.).  Any and all remaining funds go toward the planning of the next Richmond Zine Fest and other Zine Fest related events. None of the funds line the pockets of the organizers.  We plan this event because we love zines and the people who make them and read them. ❤

A Post-event Post: Zine Reading @ Sprout

Thanks to everyone who came out to support Richmond Zine Fest on Thursday. A special thanks goes to Sprout for hosting the event, our emcee Danny, and everyone who bravely jumped on stage: Dixon, Alan Webb, Mo, Elizabeth Albrecht, Safiya, Liz Canfield, Eric Scott, and Cat. It was an awesome night, and we hope attendees enjoyed it as much as we did!

Richmond Zine Fest will be held Oct. 8, 2011 at the Gay Community Center of Richmond. Check back for more details about the Fest and other related events this summer as we raise funds to keep tabling fees low.
