It’s the post you’ve all been waiting for! Hopefully you’ve already pre-registered for your Golden Tickets, if not you can get them here at pureimagination.bpt.me! It will save you (and us!) time at the door and you will get your paddle number ahead of time so you can get ready to start bidding!
Just in case you aren’t familiar with how things are working this year, admission (your Golden Ticket!) is only a suggested donation of $5! All supporters and lovers of theater are welcome!*
This year we will have a full program of entertainment and a whole slew of activities to keep you immersed in our Wonka-verse all night long. In addition to this program is a live and silent auction! We have collected several delectable items and experiences from our vast array of supporters within our community. So many so that we created some spectacular packages as well!
Our live auction items will include…
Seattle Repertory Theatre vouchers for two free tickets + a backstage tour! This is a item you will not want to miss out on, we are long standing fans of SRT and if you have not been to this world class theatre, you MUST go as soon as humanly possible! What a better way to see a show than to see how it happens from backstage first?!
Theo Favorites gift collection and a pair of tour passes + your very own Chocolate Fountain! Have you ever driven by the Theo chocolate factory in Fremont? This is your lucky day! Not only do you get to smell its sweet aroma and eat a huge amount of Seattle’s BEST chocolate, you will also get to see how it is made behind the scenes! PLUS you get to take home our very own Chocolate fountain featured at the Candy Bar at our party! We will clean it for you first and then ship it to as soon as humanly possible.
A Sex package from Babeland! Featuring a vibrator, an O-Ring, Lube, Arousal Balm, and TWO Workshop Tickets! FUN FACT! Babeland, the world famous, female and locally owned sex shop, is our longest running fundraising sponsor! Every year they give us an incredibly popular gift basket and this year they have really outdone themselves. Not only do you get one chance to bid on a big bag of fun but you get TWO! Get those paddles ready, you will not want to lose out!
A Boudoir Photo-shoot Frome Vero Bella Photography + Hair & Makeup by Saya Jean! If you have seen any of Copious Love’s shows you have seen the incredible work of our Hair & Makeup Manager Saya Jean. She regularly teams up with Vero Bella Photography for photo shoot sessions that result in some visually stunning and incendiary photos. Boudoir shoots have become increasingly popular and with good reason! Just leave it to these talented ladies, they will take care of you and you will look your absolute best!
Silent auction items will include…
A package from our theatrical buddies The Libertinis! Their P(ART)Y Basket will include a “flabongo” (a flamingo beer bong! Everyone should have one. Who doesn’t want to pull out one of those during the holidays?!), 2 tickets to a main-stage productions and an adorable, handmade hair flower!
An introduction singing lesson from local musician and Copious Love alum, John Paul Sharp! He wowed us all during our first production of Alice’s Anthem and wrote, directed and starred in our production of his musical, Total Family Massage: The Musical! He is a delight to work with and will help bring out a voice within you that you probably didn’t even know existed.
We will also have gift cards from local restaurants such as Oddfellows Cafe + Bar, Via Tribunali & Caffe Vita, Macrina Bakery, Dahlia Bakery and theatre tickets to shows around town and much, much more!
Please go to copiouslove.org for more information and/or volunteer, donate or be a part of this scrumdiddlyumptious way to spend an evening celebrating and supporting local arts!
See you on Friday!
