The Retrospectacular to Benefit NAMI Needs YOU!!!

Once again, Alicia Falworth and I are gearing up for The Retrospectacular to Benefit NAMI, July 9-11, 2010. The Retrospectacular to Benefit NAMI (The National Alliance on Mental Illness), is a 3-day event, with djs playing retro sets, with styles and eras of the djs' choosing ranging from the 1960s - 1990s, trivia, karaoke, live performers, kissing booth, date auction, SLag Burlesque Troupe show, mall with items donated for the event, all on a urban/city-esque build on a full sim. Last year we earned over 1100 usd for NAMI, I'm hoping that with your help we can double that this year.

How can you help?

2-hour set consisting of any mix of 60s-90s music, or a particular theme or era (examples that are being done -- so please do NOT use these ideas except for as inspiration -- include doo-wap, surf, harmonies of the 60s, etc).

Team Member:
Help plan, promote, recruit, build, and generally do anything else that comes up. You can participate as much or as little as you'd like, as long as you do SOMETHING.

Date Auction:
Be auctioned off for a friendly date to the highest bidder. Come up with an idea for the date. Be willing to spend 2-4 hours with the winner at once or, if you choose, broken up over 7 days. Please be creative and charming.

Kissing Booth:
We are having a kissing booth at the Retrospectacular and we need volunteers who don't mind hopping on poseballs with strangers (and ppl they know) to make L for charity. If you're interested, all ya gotta do is hangout and makeout when requested.

We are having a small mall with exclusive vendor items created specifically with Retrospectacular in min. We need designers to create/donate items for this area. All proceeds from the sales of such items will go to NAMI.

Please send one of us an IM or notecard ASAP if you'd like to volunteer.
