Parker Flats holding fundraiser on 09/25/2010 for Halloween fundraiser

See this message from Parker Flats resident Cassie Lilly:
Hello Bloomingdale and LeDroit Park!

The Parker Flats at Gage School Social and Philanthropy Committees are planning to hold a "Haunted Schoolhouse" event to celebrate Halloween with some of our younger local residents. In order to provide what we expect to be a wonderful night for everyone involved, we need to raise funds to put towards, for lack of a better term, tricking this joint out. We have planned a great fundraiser that should be as beneficial to our cause as it is a good time for all its participants.

On Saturday, September 25th from 1pm-4pm in our courtyard at 2035 2nd St. NW between U & V Sts., we will be hosting the Parker Flats Minute To Win It Tourney and Raffle. Capitalizing on the immense popularity of the NBC game show Minute To Win It, Parker Flats residents, friends, and members of the Bloomingdale and LeDroit Park communities are invited to compete in a series of 1 minute mini-games to see who exhibits the most skill at random tasks. Adult entrants will pay a $10 entry fee to compete and the last man or woman standing will receive the Parker Cup and bragging rights. Child entrants will pay $10 to enter the Youth Category, or $5 if their parent/guardian also enters the Adult Category. The last child standing will receive the Lil' Parker Cup and bragging rights. Spectators will pay $5 for the thrill of watching Parker Flats residents, members of the local community, and possibly a local ANC (who is rumored to be attending) make spectacles of themselves in the name of charity.

Refreshments will be sold, and all paid competition entrants will receive a ticket for one free beverage. We will also be selling tickets for our raffle, which promises to have some amazing pizes. All tickets will go into the same pool increasing the chances of winning eerything from bottles of wine to 1 hour massages. Tickets will be $5 each, or four for $15. We really want to make our Halloween event special for the nighborhood children, so we hope that everyone will come out and join us in rising money for this cause. The weather promises to be beautiful, the games entertaining, and the company as delightful as always in this great neighborhood of ours. See you there!
