VENICE, COSTA MESA, SILVERLAKE—Here's some craziness for a good cause: The YAS-a-Thon is a three hour "spinning rally" with over 160 participants aiming to raise $150,0000 for ThinkCure, the cancer research fundraising arm of St. Jude's. The event is put on by YAS Fitness, naturally. You can get in on the action without breaking a sweat: there's going to be a silent auction, with prizes like two round-trip tickets on Jet Blue; four LA Dodgers tickets with reserved parking; a signed script from Sex and the City; Botox treatments from Dr. Linda Li of Dr. 90210; a gift basket from the Ellen DeGeneres show, packages from Dermalogica, Vince, and Vita Coco. The spin-a-thon is Sunday, but for more information on the auctions and getting involved, check www.firstgiving.com/yasforthinkcure [Racked Inbox]
DOWNTOWN—Get ready for another edition of Thread, the show that brings together indie fashion and design, music, art and more. We went to the last one, and it was seriously fun.

RSVP for $5 admission here. [Racked Inbox]
