Raffle/Dinner/Dance Party!!!!


On Saturday June 6th we will be having an Raffle/Dinner/Dance Party at Dave and Buster's Grand Sports Cafe located in the Opry Mills Mall. This will be our big event for the weekend so please make sure you sign up before March 31st. We listened to your feedback from last year and we tried our best to accommodate. We will start the party at 5:30pm. The raffle items will be displayed and raffle tickets are only $5 this year. We are hoping to raise a lot of money for our 2009 charity, so please start thinking of what donation items you can bring!

We will have a wonderful Italian buffet featuring the following:
• House salad or Caesar salad
• Italian roasted rosemary chicken
• Linguini Alfredo and Cavatappi pasta with Marinara
• Four cheese pizza bits with basil pesto
• Garden vegetable medley
• Fresh baked rolls with butter
We will also have some type of cake or cookies for dessert. Please note all beverages (aside from water) will be from the cash bar.

Additionally, we will have a family friendly DJ. This is going to be great, I can already picture all of our cuties rocking out on the dance floor!

We are really excited about this event. For those of you that have not been to Dave and Buster's before, you should look it up online and see all the wonderful games and activities for children of all ages.

The cost is as follows:
$23 per adult
$10 per child ages 2-12
$0 children 2 and under
Please pay prior to March 31st by clicking on the Paypal link on the sidebar. We hope to see you there.

Actually, it's only cheaper if you have a child over 6, which we do not. It will be $6 more for us this year and my girls will not eat $10 worth of food each. In this economy, that is a little high.

Jenn,
I guess for children ages 2-6 it is a little more. I will change the wording. I know times are hard right now which is why I am trying to make this event as inexpensive (yet still nice) as possible. Please keep in mind this is dinner, not lunch and it is not just children eating $10 worth of food. It costs money to rent the room, there is 9.25% tax on everything and 18% gratuity. Additionally, the DJ and dessert is an extra cost as well. So in realty the children cost us aprox. $8.50 a piece for just the food, we have to add a little extra for the above mentioned. Last year, I had to pay a little out of my own pocket because we were so close. This year, my law firm and other businesses are possibly sponsoring some events to cover the cost as well.

This event is optional and we do hope you will come. The dinner on Friday night and the other activities are included in your registration fee. The only other option we looked at was having a brunch and that was a lot less food, no DJ and was going to still cost aprox. $8 per child.

Please e-mail me at murielcollison@hotmail.com if you would like to talk firther about this.

Is there a way to add more than one dinner on PayPal, or will I need to make separate transactions?
