Comments Off on NYC – Drinks for a Cure

iFanboy teams up again with our friends at Shirts for a Cure to throw an awesome party on Friday, October 12th from 9:00 PM till close and help in the fight against breast cancer. Comic book superstars Rick Remender (Uncanny X-Force, Fear Agent, Uncanny Avengers) and Jerome Opeña (Uncanny X-Force, Fear Agent, Avengers) will step up to the turntables to DJ the party. You can also look forward to iFanboy’s very own Ron Richards (DJ Ronxo) taking a turn behind the virtual turntables. Proceeds from drinks will go charity to help fight breast cancer! Come early because last year’s party was so packed that some people had to move to a second, spill-over bar. This has got the makings of yet another epic iFanboy party that you don’t want to miss!

25 Avenue B (between 2nd St. and 3rd St.), New York, NY
