Saturday Night Fever – October 5, 2013

Due to unforseen circumstances arising from the recent renovations to Pierson Hall, Saturday Night Fever has been postponed, with a new date TBA. Please contact Bill Biccum for further information. 

The Social Committee is once again excited to announce Saturday, Oct. 5 as the date for Parkdale’s next Saturday Night Fever Fundraiser. Pierson Hall is our venue and the disco ball will be ready for all you polyester leisure suited, big afro sportin’ Go-Go dancers at 7pm!

This annual fundraiser is so important to our community as it allows us to access money out of grants that are available to us. Over the years, Saturday Night Fever has repaired our hockey rink, painted Pierson Hall and recently helped us purchase a new sound system. This year’s fundraiser is focused on the beautification of the PCA and prioritizing our needs for the community.

Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door and are available for purchase from Bill Biccum at the PCA Office at 403-283-5767. Tickets can now also be purchased online at our Eventbrite page or via the form below. Tickets that are purchased before Friday, Sept. 20 will be put into the Early Bird Draw for a great prize, so get them now!

Advance ticket purchase is available until October 2. After this date, tickets will only be available at the door. Every year the number of dancers have risen so don’t be disappointed; capacity is limited, so buy your tickets today!

What are you getting for $35? We will have snacks and hors d’oeuvres, groovin’ 70’s hit music from our infamous DJ Jorge (George Massey), door prizes and great opportunities to win fantastic raffle items. Our bar will be selling alcoholic beverages and our fine feature drink of the decade at very reasonable prices.

You’ll also have the opportunity to see your neighbours and friends dress up in their funky and stylin’ 70’s attire – creating memories of this Funkytown that will last for years! We have a prize for best costume, so dressing up is optional but sure makes it a lot more fun! And yes, bring friends – they don’t have to be from Parkdale! Need more convincing? Just ask anyone who has been before – you won’t be disappointed.

Raffle

Our goal this year is to raise $10,000, which makes our raffle items the most important event of the evening. Not only are neighbours and businesses donating items to us, buying tickets helps us the most. We have many wonderful prizes this year and are grateful to everyone who will be helping us out. If you or your company are able to donate any prizes or auction items, we would greatly appreciate it and may contact Darcy Morgan at 403-209-1255.

Volunteers

Of course, what is crucial for this event to actually happen is you. Knowing how many volunteers we have beforehand can help determine just how much we can put into this event, so please, if you can volunteer any time at all before the party, it will help tremendously. If you can spare an hour or two during the party to help sell tickets, serve at the bar, sell shooters, bus tables, after party clean-up, etc., it would be greatly appreciated.

We need all the help we can get to make this party a success so come out and show your support! It’s the most fun you can have with your disco shoes on!
