Tawana Tee will celebrate her birthday by hosting a fundraiser for an eastside Laundromat.
[Charleston, South Carolina] Hip-Hop Publicist, Tawana Tee, will celebrate her birthday at Laundry Matters on Wednesday, September 5.
Laundry Matters, a division of R3, Inc. (Real Talk-Real Action-Real Results), provides free laundry services to homeless individuals throughout Charleston’s eastside community. With 13 washers and a dozen dryers, Laundry Matters, isn’t the most common place for a traditional birthday party—Tawana Tee seems to think otherwise.
“The laundromat serves a greater purpose. It’s more than just a venue for my party. It’s an asset to the eastside community, and the only place of its kind. So, I’ve decided to throw a birthday fundraiser in support of Laundry Matters.”
The public is invited to celebrate the hip-hop publicist’s 33rd birthday by raising funds for Laundry Matters. On a daily average, R3, Inc. and volunteers, provide a minimum of $75-$100 in quarters to fund one free wash and drying service to patrons.
“Instead of receiving gifts, I would like for my supporters to stop by Laundry Matters and make a contribution…in quarters.”
Laundry Matters also offers a meeting space for computer/technology classes, support groups, tutoring, and community outreach. However, to maintain these services, R3, Inc. relies on donations and partnerships. In celebration of Tawana Tee’s birthday, suggested donations amounts are:
- 33 Quarters/$8.25 Her age on Sept. 5
- 38 Quarters/$9.50 Her date of birth
- 40 Quarters/$10.00 A standard roll of quarters
- In Kind Donations Ex: washing powder, bleach, fabric softener
“With the help of Tawana Tee and other collaborative partners, we can continue to provide free access to clean clothes,” said David White Jr, Co-Founder, of R3, Inc. “Our services are both unique and imperative to the people we serve.”
To add to the birthday celebration, Many fACEs will be providing a soundtrack.
Laundry Matters will run its normal business hours, so the public is encourage to drop in between the hours of 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. The College of Charleston’s Catholic Student Association, will also be facilitating a free laundry night on the 5th.
Light refreshments will be served.
Laundry Matters is located at 51 Reid Street on the eastside of Charleston. For more information or to learn how to donate to R3, Inc. and Laundry Matters, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit ther3inc.org
