Special Ticket Discount and General Funds for the Free Republic W2 Inaugural Ball
Secure Server Donation Page ^ | December 7, 2004 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 12/07/2004 3:40:57 PM PST by Jim Robinson

Special Ball Ticket Discount Fund:

I've received several inquiries regarding a special ball ticket discount fund for people who may wish to donate to help someone else attend the ball who might not otherwise be able to attend. If you would like to make a donation that will help someone else attend the ball, please use our regular secure server donation (https://secure.freerepublic.com/donate/) page. If you have someone special in mind, please indicate in the comments area of the donation page the screen name of the person you wish to receive a discounted ticket and we will alert that person via FReepmail. If the person declines or otherwise cannot attend the ball we will notify you and allow you to designate a second person and or we can make it available to someone else. Also, please let us know if you wish your screen name to be disclosed as the donor, otherwise it will remain anonymous.

General Ball Fund:

We also have a general ball fund. This fund will be used to help offset additional ball costs such as complimentary tickets and possibly travel and lodging for band members and other invited guests who may require it, and or to offset other ball overhead expenses. If you would like to donate to this fund, please do so on our secure server donation page and indicate "General Ball Fund" in the comments field.

Thank you all very much!

Hope to see you at the Ball!!

A check is already on it's way.

I'm hopeing Kristenn can find a soldier at Walter Reid or wherever, that is recovering from a wound that is able to attend.

That is my wish, but however you two see fit to spend the money is fine by me.

You guys are amazing, truly amazing. What a wonderful thing to do.

While I can't be there, I know that there will be there that night someone for whom the evening will be especially unforgettable for this beautiful idea.

I won't be able to attend this time, but I'll be glad to help the effort by donating $100 to be used as the planners see fit.

It would be more, but I've already made too many commitments this season.

Good luck to the planners, and to all those who attend, have a great time.

Thank you Jim.

Mister or Miss "XXXXXX" is AOK in my book.

Contact American Red Cross or Family Services at Walter Reed is my suggestion. I know that Recreation Services sent wounded to the Army Navy Game last year.

Wonderful! It'll be nice to see you again... Hopefully we'll be able to find you and your family in the FReeper crowd! Will you be attending CPAC 2005? We'll be there too.

JimRob, Kristinn --

Truly an awesome idea, Jim. Bless your heart for thinking of our wounded heroes.

Kristinn, if you have any problem at Walter Reed, let me know -- I have some good friends in the right places who have been working with some of those wonderful soldiers at Walter Reed for quite some time. You know how to reach me if you need to.....;)

Does any of your guests needs something to wear? I won't be needing my Knights of Columbus formal! TaxDeduction1 would look stunning in it (along with my coat :-).
