Party for a cause at the second annual Prophets Over Profits fundraiser this weekend, Saturday, April 14th, above Brooklyn’s McCarren Park at Dobbin St. from 2-8pm. Spearheaded by Dani Slock, owner of SLOWKEY Marketing and Events, Prophets Over Profits is in direct response to Trump's proposition to defund The National Endowment for the Arts by 2019. As government funding becomes harder to attain for 501c3 organizations, Slocki decided to use her marketing expertise (and birthday!) to make make a difference.

 This year, 100% of the proceeds will go to Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls, a year-round nonprofit that provides girls and gender non-conforming youths from ages 8-17 music, art, literary and mentorship programs. Their ultimate goal is to empower women and gender non-conforming people by encouraging creative expression and providing them with the tools to be confident leaders that can affect positive change in the world around them.
