Poughkeepsie Girls Gettin' Together 1 Year Anniversary Benefit Party

Let's get together!  Come join Poughkeepsie Girls Gettin' Together for our 1 Year Anniversary Benefit Party.  In one year our group has grown to over 200 'Girlfriends' & is still going strong, thanks to all of you! 


In recognition of our group's 1 year anniversary, we will be having a Potluck Dinner & Chinese Auction.  :)


The cost of attending is:

~$5 & One of the following;  A covered dish for a potluck dinner, a non-alcoholic drink, paper cups/ plates or silverware supplies. 

~You will be given 10 tickets at the door to use for our Chinese Auction. 

~ There is a cash bar at the club.  Bring your ID if you would like to buy a drink.  No outside alcohol is permitted.

(Additional tickets for the Chinese Auction will be sold for; $5/ 12 tickets or $1/ 1 ticket.)

 **A Chinese Auction is where several items are displayed on a table with a cup next to each one.  You can pick which items you'd like a chance at winning, by placing your raffle ticket/s in the cup beside each item.  One ticket will be drawn out of each cup at the end of the party & if your ticket is drawn, you win that item.  If you really like an item, you can put multiple tickets in its partnered cup to improve your odds at winning.  You will have several chances to win cool items donated for our cause, by the generosity of local businesses.


All proceeds will be displayed on a private "Treasury Page" of our website & will be used exclusively to benefit "Poughkeepsie Girls Gettin' Together".  Our goal is to raise $144 to pay for the dues to keep us on the Meetup.com website for another year.


The Rogers Point Boating Association clubhouse should be easy to find via GPS.  The road is a little windy.  Once you cross the wooden bridge, the club is on your left.  If anyone would like to carpool, leave a comment below.  If you need help finding us, you can call or text Erika* @ [masked]-7358.


We have pounded the pavement in seek of donations from local businesses for our Auction.  We have searched far & wide for an awesome venue to hold this event at, & finally everything has come together with the help of dear friends & members.   You will also have an opportunity to win some cash in a 50/50 raffle...5 tickets for $3 or a $1 a ticket.  


Come and party with the "Girls Gettin' Together" and win some cool stuff and meet new people !!!!! :)


Thank you all for being part of our group:)  We look forward to seeing you soon!

    I really wish I could come but Hannah Mae had major reconstructive surgery a few days ago on her back leg and I need to take care of my girl. I hope it turns out as you hope and you all have fun. We will be back as soon as Hannah can walk again properly and we get settled into our new place. Love to you all!!

    • Charlyne L.

      Thanks a bunch Erica! Her surgery went really well and she is just resting and we carry her in the sling to go to the bathroom. She is in good spirits and is already ahead of the curve. She wants to do more than she should be so I am having to hold her back :-) I am just happy she can heal now!! The surgeon is optimistic about her healing prospects. Have a great week! Take care & best wishes! <3
