Tragedies are meant to be mourned, but in some instances, they also inspire action. For Loscar Rodriguez, a.k.a. DJ Solo, the loss of several relatives to cancer motivated him to quit smoking and start up Local Motion, an electro party benefitting the American Cancer Society. Last years event raised $2500, and he hopes to top that this year. This is my way of helping out and doing something positive. My goal is to hopefully raise a little bit more money than last year, says Rodriguez.
Starting at 8:00 p.m. you can dance for a good cause at Oxygen Lounge, in the subterranean level of the Mayfair.
