06-04-2006, 10:19 AM
Dear Wenches and Rogues,

I am pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Pirate Pig Pick for Local #96 Wenches, Rogues and friends will be August 26th at the home of our lovely Kaeleigh!

Last year was a tremendous success! There was good food, great friends and a lot of fun! We had some phenomenal items donated to the silent auction whose proceeds along with the money left over from ticket sales, raised over $600 for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) and the RESCU Foundations. I have provided the links for these two charities below and have found that both sites are extremely informative. The following information is quoted on their websites:

OCRF is a not-for-profit organization devoted to the formulation of early diagnostic treatment programs and research towards the ultimate conquest of ovarian cancer.

The RESCU Foundation is a non-profit organization established to promote financial relief and comfort to renaissance festival participants and their families who have experienced medical disruptions and subsequent extreme difficulties.

The Silent Auction! Last years items were phenomenal! The bidding war was by far an event to see! There were garb pieces and accessories, jewelry, artwork, feast gear, paintings, homemade skin care products and much more! Those of you who donated last year, I thank you and hope that you donate again for us this year.

I know we have a lot of creative women in our local. I also know we have a lot of creative rogues as well. We are looking for items to be donated to the auction. We love things that our members craft. Please no alcohol! If you would like to donate any items to the Silent Auction, please contact me via private messege with the item you wish to donate. If you would to donate items but are unable to attend, please contact me via private messege with the item you wish to donate.

We have entertainment this year! There will be singing and belly dancing. Some of our local members will be performing for us.
