Last weekend, Michelle Wibbelsman (Allandale) and a few friends hosted the first RG4N Fundraising House Party. Funds from the party will go to the RG4N lawsuit. The party was a roaring success.
Her co-hosts helped with snack foods and adult beverage. She played Cindy Fisher's photo/music DVD, which is a 15-minute pictoral history of RG4N events, meetings and protests. She also showed the Southpark Wal-Mart episode.
Michelle and her co-hosts made a giant thermometer that measured the evening's fundraising efforts. By then end of the night, the thermometer was about to explode! The night capped off with a Mr. Smiley pinata bashing, complete with Mr. Angry Smiley novelties and candy. What fun!
At the end of the night, her two dozen guests raised over $2000! Never underestimate what a small group of dedicated people can do! We've got some pictures from the event—check them out here.
