Third City, New York, an organization that teams nonprofits, entertainment outlets, and corporations for philanthropic initiatives (and here you thought oil and water never mixed), is holding an artist showcase at Gallery Bar on May 19 at 7pm to raise money for L.E.A.D. Uganda. L.E.A.D. — founded by award winning photographer Stephen Shames — works to raise money for abandoned children in the country affected by AIDS, war and poverty. The showcase will feature work by Shyvonne, Moruf and Lions, Tigers and Bears, as well as a DJ set by All-En1. Third City continues its mission to teach Yuppies that giving some of that money to good causes does actually make them better people, and what finer way than art to disguise such philanthropy as intellectual consumerism? Head to Gallery Bar (120 Orchard St., NYC 10002) a week from this Wednesday for a great cause, great art, and of course, great cocktails.
