Innocence Project fundraiser tonight

There is a fundraiser in Manhattan tonight called “Indelible.” Part of the $75 admission fee  ($100 at the door) will be donated to The Innocence Project, whose lawyers take on wrongful conviction cases that can be exonerated through DNA tests.

The event, at the New York Society for Ethical Culture, will feature a performance of Philip Hamilton’s Voices featuring beat boxer Kenny Muhammad, a screening of director Randall Dottin’s award winning film, Lifted, and the premiere of the new trailer for a documentary called Indelible.

The documentary is the story of an African-American female geneticist who races to find a cure for a rare disease that killed her husband and now threatens the life of her teenage son. A majority of the proceeds of the event will go toward the film.

The fundraiser opens at 6:30 p.m. ay 2 West 64th St. (at Central Park West). For more information call (212) 242-4735.
