Description

Dearly beloved
We are gathered here (Sunset Park) today (April 22, 2017)
To get through this thing called life

Electric word life
It means forever and that’s a mighty long time
But I’m here to tell you
There’s something else
The afterworld

….In 1984 Prince and the Revolution famously sang those lyrics to open both the album and film, titled “Purple Rain“.  Sadly, on April 21, 2016 the earthly reign of the Purple Rain creator came to a tragic and premature end. At this one year anniversary, we will gather not only to “get through” this thing called life- but to CELEBRATE this iconic “Pop Life” figure.
Whether you were a fan of this “Musicology” legend or not, just like the color purple, or love the number “7” like Prince did, “Gett Off” the couch and “Let’s Go Crazy” and party like it’s “1999“.

Costumes are highly encouraged! Grab your “Raspberry Beret” or at least your favorite purple running gear- “Hot thing“, you know “U Got the Look“!

NOTE: The color Purple is also associated with several different causes. Unlike the color pink, which is almost exclusively linked to Breast Cancer Awareness, the color Purple is associated with a variety of causes. Among them include Alzheimer’s Disease, Animal Abuse, Eating Disorders, and Victims of 9/11 to name a few.  Whatever the cause closest to you, I invite you to join us- We Run As One!
