Bans Off Our Bodies Florida announces Independence Day Boycott from Roe v Wade Decision

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Local and national pro-choice groups have declared that since women are rapidly losing the freedom to control their own bodies, Independence Day has struck a new chord this year... with a spending strike. Bans Off Our Bodies in Florida is calling for a complete strike of all retail goods from July 2 until the completion of July 4, 2022. Since women have 85% control over consumer spending according to Forbes, the impact could be huge.

"We're looking to show Florida and the country that the impact of controlling women's bodies will have far-reaching consequences," said Laura Lippo, one of the event organizers, "Today, women control more than $10 trillion of total U.S. household financial assets according to CNBC. I hope we send the message that if the government tries to control our bodies, we will leverage our spending power to affect the economy of this country."

Americans are estimated to spend 7.52 billion dollars over the holiday weekend; Bans Off Our Bodies is calling for a total freeze-out of this spending. "Whether it's fireworks or food, gas or clothes, don't do it! Don't spend a dime," Co-organizer Alicia Caple says, "We will be seen. We will be heard."

Human Connection Arts Premieres its First Installment of Naked Theater As ‘Freedom Dance’ Readies for June 2 – 5 Run at the Gene Frankel Theatre

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Human Connection Arts, a non-profit founded by NYC-based artist and body painter Andy Golub, announced today performance dates of the group's second Naked Theater production, "Freedom Dance."

Running from June 2 through June 5, 2022 at the Gene Frankel Theatre at 24 Bond Street in lower Manhattan, "Freedom Dance" consists of a series of playful scenes that build a symbolic, existential story about the challenge of coping in our current troubled world. The production will feature a totally nude cast.

"It's actually not about the nudity at all," says writer/director, and Founder of Human Connection Arts, Andy Golub. "Clothing covers up our natural state. We are socialized on so many levels, it prevents us from processing ourselves, each other and the world around us."

Throughout the production, a series of existential scenes build an abstract story filled with original music, song, dance, movement, and acting. Scenes include a dance scene exemplifying the relationship of fire and the tree as she burns him down, a person perpetually swimming, the contemplations of a disgruntled god, and the cast symbolically sharing various interpretations of what is freedom.

"There is a time in life when things get so complicated, that we simply need to simplify, to step back and see things in a more basic way," says Golub. "This production is designed to help people to get back to seeing the basic, important things in life."

Prior to turning to theater production, Golub has organized many large-scale art events throughout Europe and the U.S., and his "living art" has been featured at many New York City Parades and Pridefests.

Naked Theater's production of "Freedom Dance" stars Annie Cox, Atlantis Carp, Ethan James First, Joseph Grosso, ​ Luca Villa, ​Maggie Rineman, Mizuho Kappa, Nora Gatz, and ​​Raul Gajasamharamoorthy.

The production is written and directed by Andy Golub and stage managed by ​​Raul Gajasamharamoorthy with lighting and sound by Hammer Productions. It runs June 2-5 at the Gene Frankel Theatre at 24 Bond Street in Lower Manhattan.

"Freedom Dance" is a unique, one-of-a-kind show with a very limited run of just four performances: Thursday - Saturday night at 7 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. The production runs approximately 90 minutes. Tickets are $35. Must be 18 years or older to attend.

Star Vintners and Top Innovators in Food & Wine Take the Stage at 9th Annual WineaPAWlooza June 24 and 25, 2022

NAPA, Calif. -- Jameson Humane (Jameson), a solutions-based nonprofit and animal sanctuary which educates to inspire change on behalf of companion and farmed animals, is holding its signature fundraising event, WineaPAWlooza 2022, live and in-person on Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25 at 5 p.m., PT. Combining two things that are universally loved (wine and animals), WineaPAWlooza has consistently earned its place as one of the top 10 wine events in the country, as cited by Wine Spectator magazine. The money raised from this spirited and highly anticipated event supplies the critical funds necessary for Jameson programs to improve the state of animal welfare and to save lives.

Innovators in Food & Wine Join This Year's Impact-Driven Fundraiser

This newest iteration of Jameson's annual fundraiser expands on Jameson's mission, which is to improve animal welfare through global collaboration and education for the benefit of all life. Bringing together leaders in the food and wine industry to discuss innovation, behavior, and action-oriented change to our food system, including wine-for the health of animals, humans, and the planet-takes place on Friday evening, on Pritchard Hill. Amanda McCrossin of SommVivant, and Brian Cooley of CNET, will be co-moderating a panel of prestigious vintners and food industry leaders on June 24 from 5-7:30 p.m. The cuisine will be curated by Little Saint, a Healdsburg plant-based restaurant overseen by Kyle Connaughton of three Michelin-star SingleThread.

PANELISTS:

Eric Schulze, UPSIDE Foods; Alison Kilmer, Miyoko's; Tamearra Dyson, Souley Vegan; Christopher Jackson, Jackson Family Wines, Rooted for Good; Carlo Mondavi, RAEN Winery, Monarch Tractor; Molly Sheppard, Spottswoode Estate Vineyard & Winery

The Grand Tasting, Animal Parade, & Wine Auction with Celebrity Guest, Christie Brinkley Saturday June 25, 5-10 p.m.

Returning this year in-person to the famed Beckstoffer Farm Center, Saturday evening includes the Grand Tasting showcasing handcrafted wines and the vintners who make them from 50 of the "who's who" of Napa and Sonoma Valley's wine glitterati (click here to see Participating Vintners), plus special guest, Christie Brinkley, showcasing her vegan Bellissima Prosecco.

"When I heard about the work that Jameson Humane does for animals and the planet, I knew that I had to be a part of this year's WineaPAWlooza. Being a lifelong vegetarian and activist; sustainable and vegan or vegetarian-friendly causes are extremely important to me. What's even more unique about the work we do at Bellissima is that we go beyond the bottle - we are committed to giving back to the planet and supporting animals and communities in need," said Christie Brinkley.

The legendary Animal Parade will be led by celebrity wine auctioneer and personality, Fritz Hatton, followed by a delectable plant-based menu designed and executed by Goatlandia. The evening will culminate in the much-anticipated live auction of 20 spectacular lots, featuring cult wines, one-of-a-kind experiences, and trips to global wine destinations.

WineaPAWlooza will be hosted by world-renowned wine auctioneer Fritz Hatton, as well as Jameson Humane and former 750 Wines Founders Monica and David Stevens, and Vanessa Conlin, MW. Andy and Betty Beckstoffer will be presented with a Lifetime Philanthropic Achievement award.

"This year's WineaPAWlooza is bigger, better, and more important than ever. Not only do we have the best-of-the-best, most generous vintners and winemakers sharing their most sought-after wines, but we take our mission to the next level with true innovators and disruptors in the food and wine industry who join us to share their solutions for the future and to benefit all of us, the animals, and the planet. The time is now to innovate, learn, share, and enjoy all that our wine country and its community have to offer," said Jameson Humane Co-Founder and WineaPAWlooza Co-Chair, Monica Stevens.

"I'm thrilled that we are back in person for WineaPAWlooza 2022! Our Friday night format will showcase everything Jameson Humane does not just on behalf of animals but also for the people and the entire planet. Having Christie Brinkley at both nights, lending her star power to WineaPAWlooza, truly shows us how the great work that Jameson does is being noticed nationally. The funds we will raise on Saturday are more important now than ever and our amazing vintners and donors will make the future brighter through their generous contributions," said Vanessa Conlin MW, WineaPAWlooza Co-Chair.

Doing Business with the Federal Government Community Event Opens up Access to More than $500 Million in Annual Contracting

PHOENIX, Ariz. -- Expanding access to more than $500 million in annual contracting, Thinkzilla Consulting and the Arizona District Office of the U.S. Small Business Administration are collaborating to host a special event on "How to Do Business with the Federal Government."

Arizona is home to more than 600,000 small businesses, yet only 11 percent are helmed by racial minorities, according to the Arizona Small Business Economic Profile, and many businesses struggle to understand the vast opportunities available with federal government contracts.

"We strive to be the trusted partner of choice for the nation's leading organizations, including the federal government, bridging the gap by fostering meaningful connections with underrepresented communities and disadvantaged entrepreneurs."

Topics to be covered include: the procurement process and how to get certified; documents and business structure required for doing business with the government; program to support minority- and women-owned small businesses; upcoming county infrastructure construction projects; top categories where federal agencies spend the most on contracting and more.

ABOUT DOMAINE CARNEROS:

Founded in 1987, Domaine Carneros reflects the hallmark of its founder, Champagne Taittinger, in creating a vision of terroir-driven sparkling wine and preserving the quality tenets of the traditional method production. Located entirely within the Carneros AVA, between Napa and Sonoma counties, the six estate vineyards total approximately 400 acres with 150 acres planted to Chardonnay, 250 acres planted to Pinot Noir, with the remaining acres currently in development. The winery focuses on making ultra-premium Carneros sparkling wines largely estate grown and limited production Pinot Noirs.

Domaine Carneros' château has become a landmark and symbol of the region. The architecture and interior design were inspired by the 18th century Château de la Marquetterie owned by Taittinger family in France's Champagne region. In March of this year, the San Francisco Chronicle named Domaine Carneros one of the top 25 Best Bay Area Wineries to Visit.

The winery also places a high value on preserving the environment and has been a leader with respect to a vast array of environmental undertakings. The roof of the pinot noir winery adjacent to the château hosts a solar array that was the largest on any winery in the world when it was installed and this year, a new state-of-the-art microgrid system will help the winery with 85% of its energy needs. The winery has a continued commitment to creating a lighter footprint on the earth. Two of its most recent environmental awards were the California Green Medal for Domaine Carneros' demonstration of "Smart Business through efficiencies, cost savings and innovation from implementing sustainable practices," and in 2020, the Napa Climate Now Climate Champion in the Business category.
