Newly formed charity, House for Humanity is throwing a high-end party to benefit local homeless children.

The House for Humanity, a newly formed San Francisco based charity has set its mission to leverage the local House music scene to raise money for something more than profit. Its mission is to assist local children of homeless families get back on their feet. The San Francisco dance scene is probably the most prolific in the country. There are numerous promoters that throw first-rate parties on a weekly basis but few benefit anyone other than the person promoting the party. Hooman Moayyed, the founder of House for Humanity, saw an amazing opportunity to allow House music aficionados to feel good about going out and having fun. "The House in House for Humanity not only symbolizes shelter and refuge but it also represents the House music scene and their followers," says Moayyed. "Dance for a Purpose is H4’s mantra and we plan to continue planning parties bi-monthly with happy house fundraisers in between months. H4 eventually hopes to do concerts with big name DJ acts and raise larger amounts of money to continue its mission."

On Saturday, August 3rd, 2013, H4 is throwing its first fundraiser at the new Region Lounge. H4’s goal is to raise at least $5000 to benefit the Raphael House - their partnering organization that aims to assist displaced families in crisis. Due to the kindness of DJs and staff, every dollar of proceeds will benefit the Raphael House.

The DJ lineup consists of local talent such as Marija Dunn, Trey Courtney and Hooman Moayyed. This is a ticketed event and the proceeds will support their cause. Tickets are available via Eventbrite or at the door for $15 in advance or $20 the day of.

As an innovative way to continue raising money at the party, H4 has created a signature Absinthe Martinis that will be served in a keepsake LED martini glass that guests can keep. Every drink will support the cause so this is your change to take a spin with the Green Faerie!
