Stay Calm is a BME community event organized by Shawn Porter, Carmela, Brian and Robin as a celebration of life in Shannon's memory. It took place on April 27th, 2013.



Stay Calm was an event established in memory of the life of Shannon.

The Philadelphia area IAM community, known for the last 13 years as ‘the Weirdos’, were always one of the most active IAM groups and when our friend passed away, we decided to throw a small get together to say our respects and our goodbyes. We figured that we’d get around thirty of our old friends, kick back at a bar and tell some stories and raise our glasses.
It’s sort of grown beyond thirty people; to date there are slightly over 200 folks making the trek to Philly by car, bus and plane. The Stay Calm planners have arranged a full day of fun- a family friendly park visit on the morning of 27th April leading into a wild night at Philadelphia’s only Leather Bar (which is owned by IAM members) that’ll feature raffles, drinks (both virgin and alcoholic) and a whole lot of fun.
