On July 25, 2016, Three Day Hangover gathered together artists and friends to respond to tragic events unfolding in our community and nationwide. The mission was to start meaningful dialogue and take tangible action to combat the senseless violence and hate that is overwhelming us. We celebrated the things we are sure of in life; community, creativity, bravery, and most importantly, love as the most powerful force of change we have. 

Thanks to generous donations from people around the country, we were able to raise almost $3000 to benefit New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, Cure Violence, and the Urban Justice Center. 

Special thanks to our amazing, empowered participants:

January LaVoy, Elise Santora, Antonio Suarez, Nick Choksi, Shermayne Brown, Rob Robinson, Brian Dykstra, Vichet Chum, Joel Rainwater, Amanda Sykes, Frankie J. Alvarez, Dylan Christina Moore, Matt Wilson, Suzy Jane Hunt, Chris Grant, Amber Joseph, Chad Goodridge, and Leah Gunn Barrett.
