More Ways to Help Some Great Causes at MagicMeets 2009
The Dream Team Project Auction isn’t the only way MagicMeets attendees can help bring a little magic to those in need. Check out these other great ways to make a difference:
Friday night, August 7th, MagicMeets will hold Celebrity MagicTunes, a fun game show that challenges some of our Disney community “stars” to name that MagicTune! There is a minimum $5 donation at the door for event admission, and all proceeds will benefit bothÂ Deb Wills’ Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and The Dream Team Project.
Magic â€˜Meets’ Arooga’s Karaoke Meet
Arooga’s is the new restaurant next door to the Radisson Penn Harris, home of MagicMeets. And for some more Friday night Fun, it’s a Karaoke Meet! A $5 charity donation will be requested in advance.
Friday evening holds one more new event at MagicMeets: Minnie’s Mart, hosted by The Dream Team Project. You’ll find all sorts of Disney-related goodies on sale: toys, pins, collectibles, posters, and more! All proceeds benefit the Make-A-Wish FoundationÂ® of America. Minnie’s Mart will be open in the lobby of the Convention Center on Friday, August 7th, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Come early for the best selection! Minnie’s Mart is cash-only, with items ranging from $0.50 to $25.
Limited Edition Note Cards
The Dream Team Project will be selling a limited edition set of notecards featuring art by Sandy MacGowan. These beautiful cards will be sold in sets of 8 cards, 4 each of two designs, for a donation of $7.00 per set. All proceeds from the sale of these cards will go to the Make-A-Wish FoundationÂ® of America.
Limited Edition Posters from Deb Wills
Be sure to stop by the AllEars table in the Main Ballroom during MagicMeets to purchase your own limited edition poster of The Flying Dutchman, the ghost ship seen in theÂ Pirates of the Caribbean movie, anchored off Castaway Cay. These 11 x 17″ glossy posters are sure to sell out quickly! They cost just $20, and Deb will sign them for you personally. She is donating the proceeds to the Dream Team Project. Thank you, Deb!!
