Usually finding good news is harder than finding a good party.

Luckily on Thursday, March 25th, you’re going to be able to find both.

That night Groundwire, Upping the Anti and the Toronto Media Co-op are hosting an epic, fun-filled evening with music, drinks, an art auction by artist CoCo., a raffle and other awesome events in order to raise as much money as we can. The G20 is coming to Toronto in late June 2010 and we are trying to set up the infrastructure necessary to cover it. We need journalists, writers, equipment, publications and cash to make it all happen.

We are hoping you can help us out.

Our goal for the G20 is to provide a platform to provide daily analysis and updates using both audio, video and feeds. Our goal for the evening is to dance, have tons o’ fun and make a lot of money.

Don’t know much about the Toronto Media Co-op, Upping the Anti or Ground Wire? Websites and a short description of the various media projects can be found below.

Get ready for a night to remember. See you on the 25th!
