On Thanksgiving Eve, The Hive Society will bring people together for a cause at “Cheers for Charity.”

The Hive Society and community service are as inseparable as peanut butter and jelly, as Kanye West and his ego. Though the Houston-based collective may be MOST known for supporting the arts – as this year’s edition of AXIOM will remind you – the root of The Hive’s mission is philanthropy and giving back to Houston’s less fortunate.

2016 saw The Hive Society go about accomplishing that mission in more creative ways than usual. Houston Cares this year built on the Hive’s partnership with the Houston Food Bank, for example; and The Bees assembled backpacks to distribute to Houston’s homeless population this summer. Next week, The Hive will embark on a yet another new endeavor, “Cheers for Charity.”

“Cheers for Charity” is essentially a service event dressed up as a holiday social. Presented as part of the Analogue Wednesdays series with Dreams in Stereo, Audio Gawds, and Soalz Entertainment, Cheers for Charity invites Houstonians to a night of live entertainment and good music. In addition to a live band and an open mic, the night will also include a special performance from emerging Houston music artist Eimaral Sol. All proceeds from the evening will go towards funding The Hive Society’s “Adopt A Family” initiative, which will this year provide gifts and resources to 3 Houston families in need this Christmas.

“Cheers for Charity” goes down next Wednesday, November 23rd, in the Foundation Room of Houston’s House of Blues, 1204 Caroline St. At-the-door tickets are $10, though pre-sale tickets for the event can be purchased here. To find out more about “Cheers for Charity,” visit The Hive Society’s website here.
