...Virtural Feast of Friends Fund Raiser. (That's a mouthful)
No, we won't be eating our 'Friends'.
When: February 14, 2009 (US date)
When: 14 February, 2009 (International date)
What a wonderful way to celebrate Valentines Day. If you don’t have a “significant other”, that’s OK, you can sit at the head table with me and we’ll poke fun at everyone that has to behave because their partners are watching.
Where: Video Friends Country Club located HERE.
Time: 0 pm your time. Your seat will be reserved for you, HOWEVER, we reserve the right to sell your seat to the highest bidder if you’re late. Sorry, no refunds.
Entertainment: We had arranged for a “Beatles” reunion but then decided that the head table of “single” people would be enough entertainment.
(We had a seat reserved for Mr. Pinhead (he's single too), but he seems to have gone missing. I wonder if we should sell his seat? Hmm....)
Cost: $10.00 for a seat near the “FUN” table. $5.00 if you want a quieter table in the back, near the toilets, so you can oogle your partner and wonder what all the laughter up front is about. (NOW I know why I’m single)
Dress Code: This is a Black Tie affair. All else is optional. That means you can ‘virtually” wear anything (or not) you like with your black tie. You can “virtually” imagine what others are wearing as well (or not). (No wonder there is so much giggling going on.)
Why the party?
You may or may not be aware of the fact that VFF is funded entirely by our beloved Butch.
Imagine that you have a pc whose sole purpose is for hosting VFF and YOU have to pay for the internet access, the maintenance on the machine, and the software.
That begins to hurt after awhile, especially in today’s economy.
This is where we would like to reach out to you wonderful forum members and offer you a fantastic ‘virtual’ meal as a means to raise funds to keep VFF in business. We don’t want to resort to advertising as a way of supplementing the costs, so we’re asking you folks to lend a hand if you are able.
You may purchase your tickets through PayPal at “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
If you would like to purchase a ticket, but don't have a PayPal account, please contact me, either through PM or email and we can make other arrangements.
Hurry, seating is limited and obviously the best seats go fast.
There will be a drawing for all those who attend the party (meaning, all those who participate in this thread), with the winner earning the right to choose their own VFF Title OR choose the Title of one of the Administrators of this forum. I can think of a few names..... er..... Titles I'd like to give Greg, but we have to keep it clean, ya know.
We realize that this is a difficult financial time for many, but we'd still like you to attend our dinner party.
The ticket prices are negotiable, meaning you can pay more or less if you so desire, but we certainly won't mind if you crash the party.
Contributions are totally voluntary and your continued membership here is not based on whether you come for dinner or not.
Your contribution will be totally anonymous.
Your contribution does not enable you to any special privileges on the forum.
We're making this up as we go along, so go ahead and ask any questions you like, we'll be sure to come up with an answer of some sort.
This is meant to be fun folks. Yes, we'd like your money, but more importantly, we'd like your continued Friendship on this forum, but the forum has to "continue" for that to happen.
Our heartfelt thanks to all of you who make our forum the wonderful place it is!!
We look forward to seeing you at the party. Bring your smiles and your desire to have some fun!!
*Sigh* Anyone want to be my date? *Sigh*
(Did I really set myself up like that? Uh oh!)
