On Friday, February 24, Benevolent Media presented Louder Than a Bomb, a fundraiser party to benefit Split This Rock and the DC Youth Slam Team in Washington, D.C.

Friends and fans joined us at The Dunes for a special evening featuring live performances by D.C.’s best and brightest youth poets, plus excerpts from Louder Than a Bomb, an award-winning documentary about the world’s largest teen poetry slam, based out of Chicago.

Funds raised at the party will help stage the first-ever Louder Than A Bomb High School Poetry Slam Festival in the District in June 2012.

A silent auction featured the chance to hire poets to lead private workshops or performances.

Locally-sourced frozen treats, including a custom-crafted “Bomb Pop,” were provided by Pleasant Pops. And a delicious Mac ‘n’ Cheese platter was brought to you by Everlasting Life Cafe.
