Just can’t believe we have been helping out animals wit our little science fiction convention on Twitter for 5 (count em five) years now! 2014 marks the 5th Annual SCIFIpawty. This is just pawsum!
We are so excited for this years event. We are teaming up with NipClub this year to make #SCIFIpawty’s 5th year super pawsum by makin gthe pawty a 24 hour event and hopefully loads of fun stuffed into those 24 hours. We will once again have DJs, Barktenders and Security enforce throughout the event, but we will be able to expand our entertainment events thanks to the pawsum entertainment crew from NipClub.
Once again we will be booking our favorite bunny chef @ZACKRABBIT to give us a #SCIFIpawty edition of #CookingwifRabbits and hope to have a return visit from the #PAWFLEET group hosting a panel or two as well. Plus we hope to have special editions of both #CAYKCLUB and #KEEPFITS. Stay tuned for more information.
Just like last year I am extending a paw to ma foster monster sisfurs by dedicating dis years event to Tippy and Drizzle. Both of these precious kittehs lost their battle t FIP only a year ago and we miss them something awful. Dis past year we did adopt Phoebe & Piper, also from One By One Cat Rescue and boy are dey crazy.
What is SCIFIpawty? Quite simply, SCIFIpawty is the first and only virtual science fiction convention & party hosted by animals for animals on Twitter.com. There are DJs spinning our favorite tunes, bartenders offering up out of this world food & drinks (virtually of course), security (red shirts) to keep the spammers and scammers away, a costume contest, and quizmasters tasking us with fast paced, fun trivia with a chance to win door prizes. All this is achieved through the help of many wonderful volunteers and sponsors.
This event is used to raise awareness of animals in shelters, the need for adoption/rescue as well as raising much needed funds. Last year our event was able to raise over $1515 for the One By One Cat Rescue (This year let’s shoot for $2000). In the past 3 years we have raised over $4300 for animal rescues. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.
Our past prize/auction sponsors included: Jane Wiedlin (the Go-Gos, Star Trek), Adrienne Barbeau (Creepshow, Swamp Thing, The Fog), ThinkGeek.com, PerpetualKid.com, Roommates Décor, Mimoco, 1Up Collectibles, Nylabone, Bissell, DogToys.com, CatToys.com, ScifiSlacker.com, TokiPoki.com, BlogPaws and many other great companies, sites & individuals. This years prizes are gearing up to be just as great!!!
