Save the date: Tomorrow night join Mediabistro.com for a cocktail party to bring awareness to WhyHunger, a 35-year old non-profit dedicated to fighting poverty and hunger both in the United States and world-round.

The event, which teams up with WhyHunger to raise the profile of its annual Harry Chapin Media Awards Ceremony begins at 6:30 and runs till 8:30 at the Trattoria Cinque. According to the site, the Harry Chapin Media Awards were founded in 1982, to “bring exposure and prestige to journalists who tell the stories of hunger and poverty.” Last year’s winners include Debbie Cenziper and Sarah Cohen of The Washington Post for “Forced Out,” an investigation into the D.C. real estate boom and its effects on the housing projects, and Aliya Sternstein for her CQ Weekly piece “Hunger Hits Home.”

The winners and finalists will be honored during a ceremony at the Times Square Hard Rock Cafe in September 2010.

The event is open to the media and RSVP only. Reserve your space here!
