A Holiday Party Right Out of the Movies!

UPDATE:  It was an outstanding event!  The Unity League raised $504 in cash and collected 1 Wal-Mart (thanks Harry!) and 38 Target gift cards for V.O.I.C.E.S.  Thanks SO much for your generosity!

The folks at the Napa Valley Unity League really know how to throw a party . . . especially holiday parties.  Here's what they've got planned for this year!

It Will Be A Holiday Party
Right Out Of The Movies . . .

with “Chinese Turkey” and Everything!

Join the Napa Valley Unity League at our annual Holiday Party Extravaganza on Monday, December 6 from 6:00 to 8:30 pm at Riverpointe Resort (500 Lincoln Avenue in Napa - FIRST floor of the Clubhouse Building)

So, here’s the story . . .

We had planned to have a great big Italian feast at the Napa Valley Unity League’s annual Holiday Party, just like last year. When we contacted the restaurant we found out that they were closed on December 6. We were disappointed but we’ve never let our disappointment get the better of us. The situation called for creativity . . . and boy, did we get creative!

We thought – hey, remember in the movie “A Christmas Story” when the Bumpus’ hounds invade the Parker’s house and devour “the old man’s” turkey? They didn’t let a little catastrophe ruin their holiday! They all got dressed, jumped in the car and headed out for Chinese food.

And then we thought – hey, why can’t we do the same?

Join us on Monday, December 6 for a Chinese meal, beverages (including delicious wine from Stonehedge Winery) and festive holiday fun! We’ll gather for drinks starting at 6:00 pm. Dinner will be served at 7:00.

And what does all this cost? Just one $10 gift card from either Target or Wal-Mart.

The gift cards will be donated to V.O.I.C.E.S. – a local organization that “unites transitioning foster youth, social service agencies, educational institutions and committed community members to help young people become independent adults and engaged citizens.” The gift cards will be used as holiday presents for their clients. Can’t get to Target or Wal-Mart? Just bring $10 and we’ll take care of it for you!

What else? For every $10 gift card (or $10 in cash) that you donate you’ll receive one raffle ticket for a chance at some fabulous prizes.

So, please join us DOWNSTAIRS at Riverpointe Resort on Monday, December 6 for the Napa Valley Unity League’s annual Holiday Party Extravaganza!

See you there!

The troops from the Napa Guerilla Gay Bar absolutely can't miss this event!  Just be sure to RSVP to rsvp(at)napavalleyunityleague(dot)org as soon as possible.  We don't want them to run out of Kung Pao Chicken!

Follow-up:  Not into Target or Wal-Mart?  Don't want to fight holiday traffic?  The folks at the Unity League encourage you to just bring $10.  They'll turn to cash over to V.O.I.C.E.S. to use as they see fit.
