All the fun/cheap/life-changing events happening this week around Beantown, just a hop, skip, and a jump from campus! This week, we are highlighting all of the philanthropy events happening around campus, hosted by various organizations! \r\n\r\nMonday, November 28th\r\n\r\nMusical Meditation and Gita Distillation\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nJoin the Hindu Community of Northeastern for their weekly series. Every Monday in Ell Hall’s Sacred Space, the event starts with musical meditation followed by a summary and discussion of one of the chapters in the Bhagavad Gita. Dinner will be served afterward at 8:30 pm. \r\n\r\nTuesday, November 29th\r\n\r\nNU vs. BC\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nIt sucks to “BU” but BC isn’t any better! Show off your husky pride at the men’s hockey game in Matthews Arena at 7pm. #RedBlackOnePack\r\n\r\nWednesday, November 30th\r\n\r\nLMA Small Concert Series\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Live Music Association is hosting yet another concert in AfterHours, this time with Be Cool, Desiree McCann and headliner Kevin Garrett. He recently debuted his pop-soul EP Mellow Drama so be sure to be on the lookout for it during the show! Fun fact: Kevin recently co-wrote a Beyoncé song.\r\n\r\nThursday, December 1st\r\n\r\nRelay for Life Zumbathon Kickoff\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWork off that Thanksgiving turkey with a 90-minute, high-intensity Zumbathon! Tickets will be sold all week in Curry Crossroads from 11am – 1 pm for an early bird price of $5. You can also pay $7 at the door if you decide to go at the last minute. As always, all proceeds go toward our Relay event on March 24th, which benefits the American Cancer Society. \r\n\r\nFriday, December 2nd\r\n\r\nSoWa Winter Festival\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nFriday kicks off SoWa’s 3rd annual Winter Festival with a wide selection of holiday decorations, artisan foods and other handmade items.
