Just one month after cancer survivor Melissa Smith was awarded $50,000 from Chive Charities, changing her life for the better, Annapolis “Chivers”—supporters of the popular, photo-based website’s philanthropy arm, Chive Charities—will come together to host a “pay it forward” fundraiser for a local child born with spina bifida at 8 p.m. on Friday, November 15th, at Fado Irish Pub.

With guest bartenders, The Chive sponsored silent auction, DJ, drink specials including KCCO Black Lager, and a $5 donation cover, a full on takeover at Fadó Irish pub ensures that “Chivers” and regular guests alike will have an epic night out.
