Last night was a racuous success at Underwater Lounge, as 16 new Agents were officially inducted into the Secret Society for Creative Philanthropy.

Agent 0079 taps long-time associate Loretta Rae as the newest member of the SSCP. Ms. Rae will have a mere three days to plan and complete a mission with the $100 given to her today. What did she have to say?

We are certain you do Ms. Rae. We will see you in DUMBO at the New York Chapter's Annual Meeting on Saturday. We eagerly await welcoming you to the ranks of the creatively philanthropic. And dancing the night away with you at the after party! For information on the event, please contact us.
