December Tampa Meetup - Dinner and a Show - RSVP REQUIRED!!!!

Hello Ladies, this month's meetup will be a dinner and a show event at Il Forno's Italian Restaurant in Lakeland. Dinner will be at 8 followed by a show at 9 with the wonderful Kathryn Nevets, Chi Chi Lalique, Conundrum, Dani Panic and Vinnie Marconi. Many of you know these girls from Mary's and Ybor and I'm sure they won't disappoint. This is a toy and food drive charity event benefiting Polk Counties' Children infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. You are asked to bring a new unwrapped toy or non perishable food items for entry. You will have to contact the restaurant yourself at [masked] to make a reservation and please do so ASAP because I've heard it will be packed. I will have to work that evening and will not be able to attend however I feel this is a "gathering for good" worth supporting when asked by Kathryn. Roxanne Devine has volunteered to be the on site point person, just look for her. If you have any questions before then please direct them to me. I look forward to seeing a bunch of great pix. Kisses, Camille

    I second the fact that we were stuck behind a section but I had a great time meeting new people and got to see the performers as they made their way around the restaurant. The food was very good and our waiter, Michael Angelo, was fun. All in all, it was a good time and fun experience.. just a ways from where I snowbird. I made a mistake by setting the GPS to avoid toll roads and it took me an extra 40 mins. to get to my home base. Hope to see everyone again sooner. Huggs, Jan

    I agree with the gorgeous Darlene. The performers were great and I really enjoyed the show and the vibes I got once I took it on myself to get up and stand in the main room to watch the show.
    Congrats to Stephanie on her big win in the 50/50.

    I felt like our group was Not a real welcome !I think we RSVP way before it was booked solid. & then to be Put in a Hole, Turn Off A/C, Cant see any part of the Show, But I did Notice, OUR Girls had deeper Pockets & Tipped the Performers Very well. But the best part was Meeting & making New friends, But Please DO NOT let this 1 bad outing reflect on what a wonderful Job & Her efforts do for this group. Camille spends Many Hours making this happen for all of US. & that I say Thank You Camille.. Kisses.....ssssssssssssss....

      Hey Ladies, from the pix it looked like you had a great time. Sorry again, I had to work. I know the environment may have not been optimal however you captured the spirit of the group just by being there and meeting-up. Long term visibility will equal acceptance, we need to be out in public more. Thank you all for support this great cause. KISSES!
