So, what if I were to tell you that for a mere $20 you can be part of one hell of a party on December 15th, while at the same time, helping to provide three local families in-need with food, clothes and furniture that they would otherwise have to do without this holiday season? If that didn't get your attention, please stop reading now...
|How Office Parties Should Be!|
Hey, you're still reading...I knew I liked you! Here's the deal...
The Idea: I don't know about you, BUT, I always thought that after I became an adult, I would be part of a rockin' office Christmas party every year. You know, the kind where there was booze, and mistletoe, and singing, and laughter, and overindulgence, and...well...a place where friends greeted each other with a hearty (and now politically incorrect) Merry Christmas! Yet, that has never once panned out for me. Hell, even Ebenezer Scrooge partied like a rock star every Christmas Eve at good old Fezziwig's...well, before he became a real dickhead.
|Now That's a Christmas Party!|
The Party: On December 15 at 1:00 PM, and then again at 5:00 PM, we are throwing a good old fashioned, KICK ASS, Office Christmas party, like you were always promised, at The Village Bar in Ralston. There will be food, booze, music, fun, merriment, Bad Santa, prizes, free shirts, free stuff, friends, photocopiers, and most importantly...an opportunity to provide a real Christmas for local families in the Omaha area. ALSO...we will be unveiling the 2013 HitThatDive "Bar of the Year"!
|Old School Fun|
What You Get: For your $20 donation you get access to a private party at The Village Bar. A "Merry Christmas. Shitter Was Full." t-shirt sponsored by Carmody and Son's Services. Drink specials. Chances to win hundreds of dollars in gift certificates to local bars. Ugly sweater contest. Christmas TV show trivia contest. Kick ass DJ. Bunch of other free stuff. Let's just say that your $20 will be WAYYY more than worth it for what you get.
What You Give: Hope. To quote The Kinks " Have yourself a Merry, Merry Christmas. Have yourself a good time. But remember the kids that have nothing, while you'r drinking down your wine." We have "adopted" two local families through The Salvation Army that we will provide gifts and food for in the days immediately following this event. Everything will be hand-delivered by the HitThatDive elves...so we KNOW it will be getting directly to the families.
Also, we've learned about a local mother that needs help getting a fresh start from an abusive household for her children, and needs simple items like beds for her kids to sleep in and other basic furniture. So, we've decided to get a substantial gift card to Nebraska Furniture Mart to ensure some of these items, that we all take for granted, can be purchased.
|Don't Let This Be You|
How it Works: Because we want to raise as much money as possible, and also have an unforgettable Sunday Funday, we've decided to have two parties. The first one will be from 1:00-4:00 and the second will be from 5:00-8:00. Regardless of which one you attend, there will be the same amount of fun, and swag, at both of them.
Plus, knowing how hectic everyone's schedule can be at this time of year, offering two times gives everyone a little more flexibility in ensuring that you can make it. So, unless you're out of town, there are no excuses for not attending!
So, enough babbling, here's how you make sure that you're part of one of the best times you could possibly have while knowing you're helping out local families at Christmas. Thank you!
