A Family-Friendly CARNIVAL at Aeronaut in Somerville to Support Independent Media featuring beer, prizes, games, music & more


WHAT: The Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism presents … HOLIDAY BINJ 2: Journalistic Boogaloo

A Family-Friendly Fundraiser Featuring Beer, Food, and Silent Auction plus Pop-Up Performances and Original Carnival Games with Prizes

WHEN: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12 (12–5pm)

WHERE: Aeronaut Brewing Co. in Somerville

COST: FREE ENTRY (NO RSVP OR TICKET NECESSARY), AND HERE’S WHY …

BINJ supporters may be wondering why we are offering free admission to our blowout holiday party. The reason is simple: We want to engage as many people as possible about the importance of boosting community media. There will be many opportunities for people to support BINJ at the party, but our primary goal is to pack the spot on November 12. (FB INVITE HERE)

At the same time, we are trying to make as much money for journalism as possible with this event, and there are 2 ways you can help us above and beyond just coming to party:

1 — BUY A SWAG BAG AHEAD OF TIME

If you follow any of our social media feeds, then you know we take a lot of pride in our swag and merch — from T-shirts, to shoulder bags, to press passes, stickers, buttons, and our premium tech and innovation magazine, the Boston Bubble. Purchase one of these party packs ahead of time, and get an awesome grab bag full of BINJ promo galore upon entry. Kitch collectors don’t miss out on this one.

2 — DONATE A GIFT OR SERVICE FOR OUR SILENT AUCTION

We are thrilled to say that our auction is already shaping up to top even last year’s smorgasbord, which featured everything from walking tours and restaurant gift certificates to an electric bicycle — and we’re still adding more items. If you or anyone you know is interested in making a donation, please contact us at info@binjonline.org.
