Our 2016 Godless Perverts Holiday Fun Time party was a thumping success! Good fun was had by all. We had great conversations: the ridiculously adorable icebreaker game did its job admirably. There was loads of tasty food (and Greta’s experiment with the rosemary almond chocolate pie turned out great): many thanks to everyone who brought treats to share. Chris’s mixtape was awesome, a great blend of sex, blasphemy, and resistance. Donna debaptised several people, and she’s a certified Humanist celebrant, so when she debaptises you, it sticks. And very importantly we raised $809.81 for St. James Infirmary, the health clinic for sex workers!
That total includes the $1,100 we raised in the online fundraiser (which includes $147 raised at the Godless Perverts Social Club that got put in the online hopper), and the $402 we raised at the event itself, minus $692.19 in event costs (space rental, food and drink, printing, and GoFundMe’s cut).
We want to say a big Thank You to everyone who was part of this event. If you helped with setup or cleanup, brought food or drink to share, donated money to the online fundraiser, donated money at the door, or simply showed up and made it a good time, we’re very grateful. Big thanks, of course, go to the Center for Sex and Culture for their friendly and sexy space. And thanks to St. James Infirmary for the excellent work they do. We’re delighted to be raising money for you, and plan to keep doing it. (If you want to support St. James but somehow missed this fundraiser, you can donate at their website.) We hope to see you all again next year!
