entertainment, beer, liquor and food for an evening of socializing, dancing and having a good time for a good cause. Event attendees come from all over the country, primarily from the Ark-La-Tex area, but also from as far away as California, Chicago and elsewhere. Local celebrities make it a point to attend our event annually (i.e. radio and television personalities).
The event expenses are paid by sponsorships from both individuals and corporations. Expenses are paid for before the date of the event. This includes any liquor costs that have been agreed upon prior to the event (i.e. a certain number of beer kegs at a certain price). Easter Seals, in exchange for the door proceeds, rents the venue, covers the event under their liability insurance and pays for printing and mailing of invitations, event posters and any other event collateral that may be needed.
The night of the event, a $10 donation is requested at the door. Every dollar from the door is donated to Easter Seals. While Easter Seals is the primary beneficiary of our donations, each year our sponsor revenue surplus is used to make additional donations to the Philadelphia Center and PACE – local organizations. In 2012, we were able to add to the list of organizations we support. We added Forum for Equality and the Louisiana Suicide Hotline, making small donations to each.
