It’s that time of year again.

Women in Music, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing equality and diversity for women in the world of music, is hosting its 31st annual holiday event and fundraiser. As in years prior, there’s much to celebrate when it comes to contributions and successes of women in the music and entertainment industries. While rubbing elbows with music industry execs and like-minded musicians, party goers will also enjoy music by DJ Shannonigans and a special performance by Charly Bliss, one of Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands of 2016. And also complimentary cocktails and holiday treats.

“Women in Music is proud to celebrate the spectacular year we and our members have had at Webster Hall’s Grand Ballroom – a new, bigger venue for this event. Growth was a major theme for WIM in 2016. We grew more rapidly than any other year prior, a testament to how necessary organizations like WIM are for our industry! We believe that the conversation around women’s rights and equality is one that is inclusive of everyone and we’re honored to continue to lead that conversation as we’ve done for the last three decades. As we turn to 2017, we’ll continue to find new and valuable ways serve our members as effectively as possible,” says Women in Music President, Jessica Sobhraj.

The party’s happening on December 5 from 7-11pm, at the Grand Ballroom of Webster Hall. Women in Music members can RSVP for free entry with a guest, and non-members can get tickets here ($15pp). Money raised is earmarked to support the organization’s 2017 programming.
