NEW YORK, May 04 /CSRwire/ - This Friday from 6:30-11pm Solar One and Fourth Arts Block (FAB) will be hosting a Dance Your Values Party in celebration of Shop Your Values Week and its efforts to get New Yorkers to put their money towards real systemic change for a better NYC economy.

The night will be accompanied with great music, awesome giveaways, a cool outdoor setting by the river, tons of tasty food and beer, and the opportunity to help align the moral compass for a better world. The Dance Party will kick off at 6:30pm with live music from electro pop band Strega and $3 beers to anyone who’s taken the online pledge at www.shopyourvaluesweek.com.

The music will then be handed over to a Sea to Sun DJ where he’ll pump up the bass, and get the party bumping. At 7:30pm the Dance Your Values Dance Off! will begin.
