IAW and O.N.E. rock the 3M United Way Harvest Lunch

What a way to kick off a United Way campaign! Live bands, SWAT teams rappelling down from the stadium rafters, and, of course, b-boys!

ONE IAW SWAT Sept 17 2014

It was tough to follow up the SWAT team but we had fun performing for a stadium floor full of people who had turned out to support United Way as they launched this year’s campaign.

A big shoutout goes to all the hard working volunteers, especially Kristina who was assigned to help us out!

Keep scrolling for more pics from this year’s Harvest Lunch.

Story.Lines Instagram Roundup

Here are a couple Instagram posts from the opening reception of Brad Biederman’s graffiti art exhibition last week at The Arts Project downtown. I had fun throwing down with my crew and checking out the art work; both the new-to-me and familiar pieces.
