Today Jill Weitz will be on Annie on the Spot to discuss her event “Eat, Drink & Vote,” Alaska Top to Bottom’s final push to secure votes in the Outside Magazine Adventure Grant Competition happening tonight at the Hangar. The team of Christina Vasquez, AJ Peters and Weitz is competing for $10,000 to support their idealized Alaskan adventure of hiking, biking, and paddling from Prudhoe Bay on the Arctic Ocean back down to Juneau.
The group is roughly 300 votes down, and invites everyone to the Hangar tonight, to have dinner and vote for the team. Party starts at 6:00 and they have the upstairs reserved until 9:00.
