Alice, Jamie, Tina and Kit met at the Planet to plan the 2nd Annual Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center Charity Event being held at the Planet for the 2nd year in a row. The event was scheduled for the first Friday Night/Saturday Morning in November. 12-hour marathon event would go from 7:00pm on Friday until 7:00am on Saturday.
“So, where were we?” Kit asked coming back to the table after excusing herself to use the bathroom.
“We were talking about the MC. You know Bette and I were able to get Robert Bolton last year. He’s committed to doing it again this and increasing the hours from 4-6. He will once again match the donations raised during those hours. He says he will talk to his counterpart Debra Johns to see if she will volunteer for the other six hours. That way they would alternate and cover the entire 12 hours for us.”
“Alice that would be tremendous. Robert was a big draw last year. If we can get two well-known TV personalities on stage that would be a real coup.” Jamie was excited at the prospect.
“Yeah Alice, that’s excellent. Thank you. Did the radio station agree to the free advertising spots?” Tina asked glancing at her notes and checking it off her list as Alice gave the update.
“Yeah that’s already in the works. I asked Robert to record them, so we get even more exposure having a celebrity voice making the petition for people to come out and donate. They are also doing the live broadcast for a couple of hours during the event.”
“Perfect. Alice. Thank you. Kit will your music friends be willing to help again. The bands we had last year were fabulous.” Jamie loved how much easier it was to plan year two than the previous year when they were starting from scratch.
“The Betty Band is going to be here. They had a prior commitment last year so they couldn’t join us, but they are looking forward to it this year. Carmen is going to DJ between sets. I might even get up there and do a couple of numbers myself. Maybe we should add Karaoke?”
