WWII Era Big Band Hangar Dance will benefit WNY Aviation Adventure Camp

posted by Billie Owens in batavia, WNY Aviation Adventure.

Get out those hair rolls -- AKA "cootie garages," the shoulder pads, stockings with seams up the back, the khakis and hats galore. You're invited to the Victory Dinner Dance, a fundraiser benefitting the WNY Aviation Adventure Camp.

Cost of $100 per person. The event is limited to 100 couples.

It includes music, dinner provided by Alex's Place, dancing, and an open bar during cocktail hour (How 'bout rum and coc-a cola?)

Wear '40s attire to be eligible for prizes.

There will be swing dance instruction; portraits by a professional photographer.

RSVP by May 23. Contact Eve Hens at 585.343.7440 or ehens@geneseeny.com

Nice way to exclude REGULAR folks from attending and supporting this cause with an outragous price tag! Do you realize what economic times we are in?? I'll go to St Joe's where the real fun is!

The way I read it, 200 regular folks can go (100 couples), unless you mean the only folk who can go are purple people with one eye and 20-foot reptiles growing horns (irregular folks).

What constitutes "regular"?

I knew that the post would get "slammed" and I tried to delete it but was not allowed to. I meant by regular, myself an average working class person who can't spare $100 per person

I interpreted "regular" people to mean those who can't afford to pay $100 to attend a dance. I'm pretty sure the people who can afford it are the same people who would want to support the particular cause that funds are being raised for. Okay by me.
