This Thursday, Samo Dinero will bring together creatives for a cause with his “Give Back to the City” Mixer.

You might call Samo Dinero a Jack-of-all-trades. He’s a fashion designer and founder of the Dinero’s Closet brand. He’s a tastemaker, able to bring young professionals, musicians, and brand builders together in a single setting for networking events. He’s a lifestyle blogger, with his own website dedicated to highlighting his designs and his hallmark of “a lifetime to inspire you.”

But more than anything? The Houston-hailing Sam Thompson is a creative at heart. And he uses that creativity to power a philanthropic spirit.

Last July, Samo Dinero pioneered his “Give Back to the City Mixer,” an event designed to bring artists, creatives and entrepreneurs together for a free concert and mix-and-mingling. The only catch? Bring an article of clothing or pair of shoes that would be donated. Fast forward nearly a year, and Dinero is bringing the “Give Back to the City” Mixer back yet again with new artists. Its purpose purpose of doing something right for Houston’s less-fortunate, however, remains the same.

The 2017 Give Back to the City Mixer features creatives both known and on the rise. There will be live performances from Erva Carter, Lyssa, The Aspiring Me, Izzar Thomas, DontAskGen, Mickey Woods Jr. (who our own Hope Carter interviewed last month), and DJ sets from 9th Sage and Morgan Morgan.

Dinero’s Closet will also serve as a vendor alongside other brands like MAW Supply, Free Mindz, and Lost Pieces Voutique. Pennie Annasi will be the mistress of ceremonies for the evening and Kay Illah will maintain the vibe by DJing all night. The event is free to attend with an RSVP… and, of course, with a clothing donation.

The “Give Back to the City Mixer” goes down Thursday, May 29nd, at Notsuoh, 314 Main St. Doors open at 8 PM.
