Partners in Preservation: Main Streets, a campaign launched recently by American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, in collaboration with Main Street America, will award $2 million in preservation grants to historic sites on Main Streets across the U.S. — and the public will help determine if funding will go preserve the history of Shaw. At VoteYourMainStreet.org, the public can vote daily, through October 31, for the 25 sites across America that are part of the program, from the famous Formosa Cafe in Los Angeles, CA to the historic Alabama Theater in Birmingham, AL, to the ghost signs of Chinatown in Seattle, WA. More than 300,000 votes have already been cast for this campaign, but D.C. is currently in last place!

From a press release:

“The final nights of any Drink Company Pop-Up Bar (PUB) have historically been the most fun, and seeing that Halloween is the last night of PUB Dread, this one should be no exception. This time around, Drink Company is offering timed entry passes for Halloween to benefit disaster relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

Starting today, guests can guarantee their entry into PUB Dread and snag a pass well in advance. At $20 a ticket, 100% of ticket sales will be donated to World Central Kitchen, a chef-driven non-profit launched by Jose Andrés in the wake of Haiti’s Earthquakes in 2010. Andrés and World Central Kitchen have fed over 130,000 people in Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria, and are on track to be able to serve 100,000 people a day with enough support. (more…)
