SOHO—Warby Parker has teamed up with education non-profit Pencils of Promise on a limited-edition line of sunglasses, and tomorrow they're throwing a party to celebrate. Stop by the Old School at 233 Mott Street tomorrow from 4pm to 7pm for drinks, snacks, and a look at the collection. Frames go for $95, and for each pair sold, Warby Parker donates another pair to someone in need, along with $30 to Pencils of Promise. [Racked Inbox]
