2012 will mark da 3rd Annual SCIFIpawty (can u believe it?)
Dis years event iz in honor of da foster monsters Tippy & Drizzle, who lost their battles with FIP. These precious kitties came to live wif us from One By One and brought so much joy into our lives for the short time they were with us. We miss you!
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 $1700 for the One By One Cat Rescue (This year let’s shoot for $2000).
Last year’s prize sponsors included: Jane Wiedlin (the Go-Gos, Star Trek), ThinkGeek.com, Nylabone, Bissell, DogToys.com, CatToys.com, ScifiSlacker.com, TokiPoki.com and many other great companies, sites & individuals. This years prizes are gearing up to be just as great!!!
We would love to have you join us for our event. The 2012 3rd Annual SCIFIpawty will take place on March 24th from 11am EST to 11pm EST. Just sign into Twitter during the event, search for SCIFIpawty to see what is happening and join the fun. All we ask is that you use the hashtag #SCIFIpawty in your posts so you’ll show up in the pawty streams.
Once again we will hab a costume contest, trivia questions (with prizes) and other door prizes.
If you can help in any other capacity (prize sponsor, Q&A during event, anything) please contact our event host @BorisKitty on Twitter, facebook or directly via email.
This year’s event will also be happening on facebook (but in a much smaller capacity) — for the whole party experience please join us on Twitter.
