This year we’ve introduced some new ideas to liven thing up – gone is the pizza, and we’ll be bringing in some exciting new nibbles instead. We’ll also be providing some cards and accessories for fun – how long is it since you’ve played hearts, euchre, or cribbage?

Something stay the same, though. For your admission donation you will receive tokens for beer, wine, or festive cranberry martinis, as well as the exciting new nibbles. We are asking for a donation of $5 or two cans/boxes of non-perishable food in exchange for two drink tokens. The cash donation will be split between the PUUP Good and Welfare fund and the Interfaith Food Shelf (the Food Shelf will get all of the food).

As always, your family (including kids) is invited to join us. We really hope to see a lot of new faces there!
