07 Dec Breaking: Friday’s all-media Holiday Scoop fest is now FREE
Holiday Scoop 2011, the second annual all-media holiday party for Puget Sound journalists, is now free, organizers announced today.
Here’s the word from organizer Sharon Chan:
Greetings Seattle Journalists!
In the spirit of Christmas, we are making The Holiday Scoop free!
The City of Seattle administration has decided to enforce an admission-fee policy against us, requiring us to pay taxes on this scholarship fundraiser. So, instead of giving the city a cut of the Northwest Journalists of Color scholarships, we are opening the party to all invitees for free.
You still need to register for your free ticket at http://holidayscoop2011.eventbrite.com. You have the option of making a donation online and at the event.
All Seattle newsroom staffers and former newsroom staffers invited!
The Last Supper Club (Pioneer Square)
This Friday, Dec. 9
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Get your free ticket at http://holidayscoop2011.eventbrite.com
See you there!
