Trash or Treasure

The invitations for my first fundraiser have just gone out! The blurb is below:

Calling all single people – and if you are not single, please can you forward this to your friends who are – you are invited to:

A Charity Valentine’s Trash or Treasure Party!

What’s the deal?
You pay £10.00 to bring your single-self and a friend (who isn’t quite right for you, but might be perfect for someone else) to a party - i.e. the ticket is just a fiver each!
You’ll get a glass of bubbly each and the opportunity to socialise all evening with up to seventy-five other ‘non-couples’ and hopefully meet someone who does float your boat!

After all, your trash might just be someone else’s treasure!
Statistically, you’re way more likely to meet your perfect match through a friend, so maybe you just need to widen that circle of friends for the evening!
You’ll be raising money to ‘Send the Princess of Purple to Peru’ in aid of the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity which provides valuable support to families with terminally ill children.
(If you’d like to know more about the charity effort you are supporting, please visit my donation page

Wednesday 14th February 2007, from 7.30pm – 12.00am.

The Bear, 2 St. John's Square, London, EC1M 4DE,
020 7608 2117 for directions

To book your double place, please email Charlotte (aka the Princess of Purple)
with your name and the name of the person you’ll be bringing.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Love from
the (one and only) Princess of Purple

Basically its a singles night in a funky bar in London, but the idea is that the atendees are an expanded network of people. Therefore it is easier on the night to introduce yourself to anyone who takes your fancy and you've got a pal there if you need them.

I got the idea from a Sex and the City episode and when I ran it by a few friends they were really interested, so I thought I'd give it a go. I'm not at all used to organising events like this (art shows yes, singles nights no!) and I'm terrible at maths, so it hasn't been easy working out ticket prices and venue deposits, but I'm hopefull it will work.

A lovely girl who works for my Mum has designed me some really cute tickets, so now I'm just waiting while the bookings role in and keeping my fingers crossed that I can fill the space with fabulous people!
