The Bridge PAI’s annual Revel, a “rebellious rendition of the non-profit fundraiser,” came to the Ix Project on Saturday, May 3. It was a wild night with street performers, live graffiti and art-making, and a vivacious auction featuring one-of-a-kind experiences, acted out by costumed performers. The auction got competitive with attendees bidding on high-value items like a catered dinner for eight at the McCormick Observatory or a Scotch tasting and scavenger hunt at Daedalus Bookshop. The street party atmosphere was supported by live music, local food trucks, and drink sponsors, and later moved indoors for a DJed dance party.

“Tonight is a chance to experiment with collaboration. I’d like the atypical to become more typical around
here if that means more fun, relaxation, and enjoyable productivity for everybody.”
