This Week’s Affairs from Wakefield

Events for December 10-16

The full-frontal assault of the holiday season is upon us and ideally you’ve been pacing yourself. If not, here’s some substance for the week to balance you out: a great fundraiser, a job opportunity from dear old Wakefield, and a whole lot of education.


Monday, 12/10: Inventure Talk, 7pm

Kyle Westaway – an entrepreneur and lecturer at Harvard Law – will be explaining the acronym-heavy world of startup legal structures, including Benefit Corporations, B Corps, and L3Cs. Score tickets for a mere five dollars here.

Location: NYC ACRE/NYU Poly, 137 Varick Street


Tuesday, 12/11: Rebuilding Our Schools Fundraiser, 6:30pm


Drink, eat, and bid on a silent auction knowing all the while that you’re doing good. Easybib hosts this fundraiser to help schools that have been affected by Hurricane Sandy. You can RSVP for the event with the password “helpourschools” here.

Location: EasyBib HQ, 12 West 31st Street


Dedicated Tip: Seeking Editorial Intern All Star

Wakefield (the publication you are reading at this very moment) is looking for an editorial intern for the New York bureau. You’ll score real experience writing, editing, and developing leads. You’ll also have a hell of a time. We swear. Contact us at [email protected].
