The Mice Are Rising from the Dead
For the Joy of Giving!

Mice at Play organizes
its first benevolent fundraising event!

All proceeds will go to the Park Slope Women’s Shelter
to fund their Thanksgiving Dinner

It has been nearly a year since we women of
Mice at Play, have gathered for a night of exquisite cocktails at the Hide Out. We have been missing you all. So here we are, with a fabulous occasion to gather again…

Samhain (the Celtic New Year) is nearly upon us, it provides the perfect excuse for us to commune with the spirits... and each other. Samhain is traditionally the time when the veil between the worlds of the dead and living is the thinnest. This ancient celebration of gathering and rituals also coincides with November, the month of giving. This night, the spirits will be with us to share their wisdom, offer their protection, and welcome our generosity towards our larger community.

And this is why, on November 6th Mice at Play is delighted to invite you, free-of-charge, to a night of enchantment during which you will:
  • Listen to Megan Elias, Professor of History, read a tale about Celtic feasting
  • Dare to pick a story from a hat to become a reader yourself
  • Clear your mind and heart of one regret in a unique ritual ceremony led by Cathy Towle, a renowned intuitive
  • Meet amazing women who share the same eagerness for exciting experiences and challenges.
  • Learn about our new calendar of creative events for Mice at Play 2009/2010!
But that’s not all! On November 6th you will also experience the joy of giving by helping Mice at Play raise money to fund the Park Slope Women’s Shelter's Thanksgiving Dinner. What do you need to do? You simply need to show up at the party with your contribution in a red envelope (suggested donation: $15) and enjoy the night!

Mice, we need your help to make this fundraiser a success. Bring a friend or three—friends as special as you! The only requirement for new Mice is that they possess an enthusiasm for new things and compassion and generosity towards their fellow Mice.

Thank you.

Don’t let babysitting problems stand in your way—we can provide the best sitters in town!

PPS: As a bonus, if you wish to know about your "Shadow Self," Cathy will ask you to pick a Tarot card from a deck that she will read for you. You may give her a token of your appreciation at your discretion.
