“After Party” ~ main floor St. Andrews!
As always, we will have plenty of Gerry/Scottish related items in the raffle. We are also hoping to
have some NYC related items, and just plain irresistable stuff as well. (this is where we need
everyone’s help and genorosity, as in years past.) St. Andrews is looking forward to hosting us this
year and its upstairs party room is ideal. Finally…they have a room to accomodate the Gerry fans!
Let me or Rosa know what you are planning to bring for the raffle when you decide, in order for us to keep a running list and hint at any “big ticket” items. We also hope to have a little surprise or two…no Gerry isnt joining us…hence the “GERRY WILL NOT BE ATTENDING THIS EVENT” notice.
NicoleD has graciously volunteed to head up the Raffle gathering…we’re hoping that our buddies
Cinderella and Denise57 will help set up again since they all did such a bang-up job last year.
And since after 5 years we may be running short of Gerry/Scottish related ideas for the raffle, we’ve decided to have a theme this year…its going to be called ” Six Degrees of Gerard Butler” …so that gives us tons of leeway…and lots of fun things to work with! (you can put a little tag on each item tracing its relationship to Gerard. Should be very interesting.
In keeping with simultaneous worldwide party theme… we had to keep the party to this date.
Since the weather is often wacky (who could forget last years monsoon?)…the “after party” is simply
down a flight of stairs!!! And if you get drenched this time…well…”say no more say no more” as Monty
Python used to say! rotfl
As of this writing Rosa and I are not sure which charity will receive the proceeds of everyone’s
generosity..but rest assured, it will be a good one. We will certainly keep you posted.
And we are sure that a tidy sum will be raised thru eveyone’s heartfelt donations.
Rosa and I will be adding hotel suggestions, and activity suggestions to this thread for those of you who will making a long or short weekend of it. But these ideas are strictly on an independent …gather a few friends and go on your own basis. (not like a hardcore convention since nyc is in itself a very eclectic mix!) However, we welcome volunteers for any activity organizing). So mark your calenders and check back now and then to see our progress. This should, as in the past years be so much fun…we look forward to another successful bash and catching up with all our friends.
