Anna's Birthday Masquerade Party

It's my birthday and I am gonna "party like it's my birthday."  (haha)  Well, last year was the first time I didn't throw a birthday party in 6 years so this year, we are going to double it up to catch up on what I missed last year.  Let's do a Theme Party - Masquerade Part-e! I already purchased the masks.  I bought 240 plain ones and 50 pretty cute ones - feel free to bring your own!

There will be a live band besides a game or two to get everyone in the party mood. Let's part-e! :)

So, what can I do this year to give back?  Some of you might know I enjoy volunteer work and giving back to my community.  This year, I chose the organization, Big City Mountaineers that mentors intercity youth through the outdoors.  I plan to "summit for someone" and climb Grand Teton in August 2013 - http://www.summitforsomeone.org/donate?page=4&climber=8618 (click on link to donate. Thx).

What may I ask you to help with?  Please donate at least $10 per person; if you donate more than $25, I have a spiffier mask calling your name! :)  Or, you can give me $5 for a spiffier mask the day of my birthday celebration.  In case you didn't know, your donation is tax deductible.  :)  Now, of course, you will have to donate prior to the event (THANK YOU).

I really appreciate your donation. In case you didn't know, the kids you are helping out, 83% of them are from families under poverty line.  I love the outdoors and wish the money we raised can put a child one step closer to Mother Nature! Thank you again for your donation and let's have a great time.  :)

Location: Beautifully decorated bar at Renaissance Hotel.

Parking: First 3 hours free (w/ Validation). $3 per hour after that.

Hotel Room: Group Rate of $99 for guest of our event only. Email me for code.  You can even get the hotel at $99 the night of the event if you drink too much, etc.

Cross-Post: This event is cross-posted on via 12 meetup groups with my main meetup group, www.mixprofessionals.com.  Feel free to take a look at some of the other guests attending the event.

    Hi Everyone,

If you prefer to pay at the door, please bring cash of $10. I will then donate the lump sum I receive. Of course, the only thing with that is you will not receive a tax deductible receipt. So, donate online if possible. See you tonight! :)

      Hi Alexis. Nothing too crazy.... After the live band leaves, I might put on some boogie music, depending on the crowd and space. :)

    Hi,
    Just to be sure, our donation is the entry fee for the party and also do we put our donation amount in the "Other" catagory on the website?
    Thank you.

      January 22, 2013

    • Anna

      Hi Joe. I prefer everyone donate online via the website since your donation is tax deductible. If you donate in person, I won't be able to issue a receipt.
