After The Event

How did it go?: 

On June 8th, 2008, about 1100 people gathered in New York City at Solar One to celebrate Loving Day. This was an especially meaningful year because of the unfortunate passing of Mrs. Loving. We celebrated her achievements with incredible music by DJ Spooky, DJ Rekha, and Dhundee, and a special performance by Polina. The Manhattan waterfront was a great place for BBQ, drinks, ice cream, friends, couples, and families.

Thanks to Asahi Beer, Ben and Jerry's, Steaz, Puma and Zipcar for sponsoring our event. Thanks to World Up for helping us to plan and promote our event. A special thanks to everyone who volunteered!
