Brent's Drugs in Fondren is set to host CROSSHATCH, a fundraiser for Fund the Hatch, a mixed-use creative business incubator the old warehouse building at 143 Keener Ave. in Midtown.
The JFP first wrote about the incubator on http://www.jacksonfreepress.com/news/2013/apr/03/building-creative-incubator/">April 3, 2013, and project's lead promoter/developer/fund-raiser Whitney Grant of Midtown Partners has been working since then to find a workable, self-sustaining system for the building to operate under and the funding to bring it to a reality.
The event at Brent's is set for 8 p.m., Friday, January 10. It will feature music, an arts raffle and drinks and is scheduled to roll 'til midnight.
The http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/fund-the-hatch">Indiegogo campaign for the Hatch has 13 days left, and it's currently raised approximately $4,800 out of the $25,000 goal.
