WOW! Can you believe we have been having out of this world fun all in the name of charity for four years now? 2013 marks our 4th anniversary of SCIFIPAWTY! How Pawsum iz dat?
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.
The 2013 4th Annual SCIFpawty proceeds will once again benefit One By One Cat Rescue in Kutztown, PA a no-kill, non-profit organization.
Past year’s prize sponsors included: Jane Wiedlin (the Go-Gos, Star Trek), ThinkGeek.com, Perpetual Kid, Ourpets, 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 2013 4rd Annual SCIFIpawty will take place on March 23rd 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 keep it PG & 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 door prizes. However, this year we will be adding a charity auction, pawtograph room (auctioned autographs) and celebrity panels (more info about each of these will be coming shortly).
If you can help in any 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.
