Has the Marlins stadium fiasco made you feel powerless? Looking for a way to positively affect the city of Miami? This Thursday the Wolfsonian-FIU (1001 Washington Ave., Miami Beach) will unveil a brand-new community service networking group called the Wolf Pack Gives Back. Former FIU professor and self-proclaimed rabble-rouser Ted Baker will give a short lecture on how the volunteer group will function, and then hell screen Edens Lost and Found, a documentary film about community-based groups in Philadelphia and how they survived funding cut-backs.
Admission to the event is free, and anyone who participates in the groups future community projects will be eligible for discounted membership to the museum. Organizations the WPGB will collaborate with include Habitat for Humanity, Shake-A-Leg, and Lotus House.
