Wednesday, April 16, 2008
This spring, ACCION is moving to a whole new beat in the fight against
poverty. We are hosting a CD release party at Felt Boston on April
16th, to celebrate the launch of Latin Reggae, the spicy new
collection from Putumayo World Music featuring both trailblazers and
newcomers from the rock and reggae scenes of Latin America and Spain.
In recognition of our efforts to alleviate poverty in Latin America
and worldwide, Putumayo selected ACCION to receive a portion of all
proceeds from the sale of Latin Reggae.

Please join us at Felt Boston from 6 - 9 p.m. on Wednesday, April 16th
to hear the collection, raise funds for ACCION's efforts around the
world and help us to "turn the tables on poverty."

Let DJ Profenna move you, enter the raffle to win great prizes and
enjoy free appetizers from 6 to 7 p.m.

$10 suggested donation at the door

Felt's dress code requires that you dress your best (no sneakers or
sports attire)

All proceeds to benefit ACCION International and ACCION USA
