I am me bursting and cannot hold it in any longer!
Before I tell you about Thursday, I really want to encourage everyone to get to the hotel on Wednesday evening as we will be celebrating First Event’s new home for 2015 with some entertainment. Starting around 8:00 pm right in front of the amazing atrium window, we will be entertained by my friends, Lori Diamond and Fred Abatelli. LoriDiamond.net has all info on Lori & Fred’s music – please enjoy, we hope to make the first night of First Event very special this year!
On Thursday January 22, 2015, you will start your day enjoying the Day of Wellness and Beauty. This has become a huge hit for the attendees as a variety of service providers provide services and consultations to help you in so many ways. Of course, Tiffany’s Closet will be in full swing with not just clothing. We will also have fashion consultants to help you select the best outfits that work just for you. And of course Julie will be there with her sewing machine to alter whatever you may need. This can all prepare you for Thursday evening and out Night on the Town.
Once again, on Thursday night we will be awarding our 2015 Community Service Awards. We are so excited and know that you will be too about this year’s honorees, who we shall name shortly (and yes, they already know who they are!)
Starting at 5:00 pm, the buses will arrive at the Westin hotel and your night begins as we bring you right into the center of Boston, to Club Cafe. As you arrive, there will be hors d’oeuvre served, so mingle and find your old friends or meet new ones. After the last buses arrive there will be a fabulous buffet dinner as we have the run of the cafe (which is closed to the public until 8:00 pm when we all move tot he back room to start the awards ceremonies, followed by the fabulous Peter Mac as he brings us both Judy Garland (click your heels three times) and Liza Minnelli (direct from the Kit Kat club) to entertain us all.
When the show is over, we will move back into the front room while the back room is transformed into Club Cafe’s regular dance club with DJ. There is also more entertainment in the Club’s Napoleon room up front.
You are also right in the middle of Boston where there are many other clubs that you can easily walk to. Club Cafe is open until 2:00 am in the morning and we will be providing buses to bring you home until the wee hours so you can truly have and make you very own Night on the Town!
However there is a little bad news. The number of tickets we have available for this is limited. Everyone who has already registered for the full conference or the Thursday Evening event is already in. At this point there are less than 100 tickets left for this fabulous Night on the Town, and I am certain that this night will sell out well before the conference starts. If I was a betting girl, I would wager we will be sold out before the end of this year. I encourage you to get on line NOW and make your Registration for First Event 2014, book your hotel rooms, and get here on Wednesday and enjoy everything First Event has to offer you!
..and now I can breathe again.
