HoHoTO music party preview!

The requests are in thanks to Tilt. The music is downloaded thanks to the intarwebs. We’ve got an epic evening of classic 80s, hip hop, R&B, rock, and other fun stuff planned. And no one has asked to hear Eminem, so I couldn’t be more thrilled!

See you tonight!
Nico, Andrew, and Lee, your music team.

Raffle Q & A

You’ve probably read all about our amazing raffle prizes for tonight’s party, right? Right. But, in case you missed it, take a look at this sweet list and get set for good luck tonight!

First thing’s first, though — there are some things you gotta know and there are some rules you gotta follow. Let’s talk about that, shall we?

Q. When does the raffle start?

A. You can buy tickets as soon as you arrive, but the first draw is at 8:30 p.m. We’ll continue to draw for two or more prizes every 15 minutes until 11 p.m.

Q. How much are raffle tickets? 

A. $20 for 20 tickets, or $100 for 150 tickets if you buy them in advance before 3 p.m. today! You can pick up your advance tickets upon arrival.

Q. Where can I get raffle tickets?

A. Online now, or from any of our beautiful volunteers who will be making appearances at the raffle area, on the dance floor, and throughout the venue to take your money.

Q. How will I know if I’ve won?

A. We’re announcing winning ticket numbers on Twitter (so, follow @hohoto!). We’ll also be displaying the winning ticket number of each prize on the wall behind the raffle table, so make sure to visit us lots!

Q. I won! Yay! How long do I have to pick up my prize?

A. Please pick up your prize at the raffle table by 11:30 p.m. tonight. If you’re not available to pick up your prize from us before the raffle’s over, it’ll be donated to the Hangover Action, happening this Sunday, December 14.

Q. Speaking of the Hangover Auction, what’s the deal there?

A. It’s happening Sunday, December 14 from 7 to 9 p.m. and we are so excited about what we’re saving for you!

We’ve got a huge package (LOL) for Battlegrounds Live Gaming, a sweet Bellwoods Brewery package care of FreshBooks, a Yamaha keyboard (plus stand and chair!), and even more wine… just to give you a taste. Stay tuned for the schedule to come!

If you have questions not mentioned here, tweet me! I’m @rlangdon : ) See you tonight!
