80s for Orphans

Announcing a Totally Rad 80s party...

We will be hosting an 80s for Orphans night at our home on June 6. We've not yet determined the time, but it will begin late afternoon-early evening. We will have at least one band, hopefully two, and some acoustic music as well.

We are asking everyone to bring an appetizer to share. We will have hot dogs or bbq available. It is BYOB.

This is a fundraising event for our adoption. To bring two children home from Ethiopia, it will cost somewhere between $20,000 and $30,000 dollars.

All are welcome, including children.

Start thinking of your costume. Here are some ideas: off-the-shoulder "Flashdance" sweater, Miami Vice apparel, crimped hair, mullets, big hoop earrings, leg warmers (old cut-off sweater, polo shirt (raised collar), sunglasses...

Find a photo: Find a photo of yourself from the 80s (BIG hair, mullets, racing stripes in the side of the hair)
(If you weren't in school in the 80s, you probably have no idea what I'm talking about...just bring one from your school days)

We'll send out an official invite via email or regular mail in the future.
