In DC, many of our major celebrities are the people who write and broadcast the news. But what about the people who draw it? This Thursday, you can pick up their contribution to the political sphere at Cartoons & Cocktails. The event will auction off the work of notable editorial cartoonists, many of whom have been recognized with Pulitzer Prizes. You can also have your own portrait sketched by caricaturist Rajan Sedalia, or simply knock back a few drinks as you watch cartoonists draw “real time” snapshots of the evening.
The event will be held at 6 p.m. this Thursday at the National Press Club. Tickets are $65 per person. Beneficiaries of auction sales include the Cartoonists Rights Network International and Young D.C., which sponsors an eponymous newspaper written and run by Washington teens.
