Alright folks, so here's the deal. I've wanted to do a fund raiser for a while now. A group our size should be giving back. But a comedy fund raiser? Too generic. "But Kevin," you may ask, "what other fund raising skills do you have?" The answer my friends is simple. This year I have decided to have the most epic Halloween costume of all time. I'm going to be the Man-O-Lantern, from the 40 year old virgin. This is not exactly a costume party, but feel free to put one on if you're so inclined. I'll have mine on by the end of the night. Also everyone from meet up that comes gets a free drink ticket!
If you haven't seen the movie or are unsure exactly what I mean by that, here's a refresher
Essentially, I am going to be getting part of my chest waxed, in a bar, for charity. Half of all of the funds raised are going to be donated to the healing place of wake county. The other half of the funds raised are going towards our group, so that we can have money at our events to buy appetizers etc. It's always good to have a group fund! The entire video is also going up on youtube!
There are opportunities for sponsoring as well. I am looking for people to donate goods or services. I'm not talking about coupons or a free financial assessment, I am talking about real honest goods or services. Maybe you are a massage therapist and want to give away a free 30 minute massage, or you make candles and want people to check out your organic soy chocolate scented candles. Whatever the case, the raffle is going to be one of the ways we raise money, so the better the prizes the more money we can raise!
Downtown sports bar will be giving away some gift certificates and supplying some free food to munch on. Katelyn McGinn of Atomic salon is giving away a free haircut (also if you need a cut between now and then, schedule one with her at[masked]).
Sarah Coppola has donated a necklace and some earrings you can see her studio at http://indigoartsclay.com/
Also, Erin Dunphy of http://www.mymasterdater.com is donating some speed dating passes for all of you lonely hearts out there.
Melissa Peil is donating a psychic reading to one of our lucky winners, make sure to check her stuff out at http://www.mysticalawakenings.com
If you sponsor something I will update this list and people will be able to see your information as well. Every sponsor will have the chance to speak on the microphone to promote their products or services.
Finally, I am looking for some waxers. I already have one person signed up to do some waxing, but I'm sure there are other people out there who might say "god, it'd be really nice to hurt Kevin, I'd love to do some of the waxing too!" Well, this is your chance, send me an email and I'll get you on that list. Ladies only though, if I'm going to have hair ripped out of my chest, I'd rather have something nice to look at while it's happening.
So what are you waiting for, RSVP today. This will be THE party of the year.
