Anyone can have an Octopus Club party- ANYONE! Whether you plan to have 2 people attend or 200, any dollar raised for the Paul Kirby Emergency Fund is much appreciated. Almost all of the money in the Emergency Assistance Fund comes from Octopus Club parties and every year the Paul Kirby Emergency Fund is emptied. The simple thing to remember is this: Hosts and Corporate Sponsors must cover all party expenses, so that EVERY cent spent by guests attending your party contributes directly to the Paul Kirby Emergency Fund.
So, get some friends together and set up a roadside lemonade stand or rent out the Erwin Center and hire the Rolling Stones to perform. Either way, your party will directly help someone living near you with HIV and AIDS in need of a prescription, eye glasses, rent utilities or food - basic living needs.
