Thanks to Heather Fulton for improving our Social Media Event Invitation!
*Goal of ReCharge*: To help turn ideas and plans in to fantastic reality at SOAK, Burning Man and/or BurnOut; to learn about projects for our own selfish gain; and to contribute to the growth and fulfillment of the creative ideas within our community (drink).

*As an asterisk to the BYOStuff, there will be some food [hummus, chips, fresh veggies, dip, etc.] provided, but not enough to feed people dinner.
