Countdown T-minus 7 days...

Today's blog entry features a post from Event Coordinator, Deb Sivigny!

One of the many awesome things about hosting Rorschach: X is working with the many generous vendors and businesses that donate goods and services.

One of our silent auction sponsors was just featured in the Washington Post Magazine.

Lilly's Closet is a wardrobe styling firm created by Margaret Lilly. She is a styling goddess that will transform your look from average to amazing!
You'll have a chance to bid for her services at Rorschach: X on Saturday night!

Buy those tickets now, folks!

Friday, February 12, 2010 what's the deal with this Pay-What-You-Can Benefit?

As you may have heard (below...), Rorschach has a big milestone this year--our 10th Anniversary. So in honor of that we're throwing one incredible party on Saturday February 27th. For all the party details click here or check back on the blog in the coming weeks for more inside scoop.

Today, we want to tell you a little bit about this pay-what-you-can business. When it comes to productions most of you are probably familiar with the concept (or can deduce the meaning of tiny words even when strung together with dashes...). But a PWYC benefit is a little more rare. Naturally, benefits are fundraisers (no surprise there...) and they're a great way to throw a huge celebration, spend quality time with our nearest and dearest and raise much needed funds for our organization... with that last goal in mind, we know what you're thinking: "How on earth can you make any money at all letting people do whatever they want?! Has the snow gone to your heads people? Have we declared marshall law?!"

Well, the answer is no, we haven't lost our minds. We know that the Rorschach family (that's you guys...) is made up of all kinds of people, so we're giving you lots of options.

What do all these options mean for me, you ask?

Here's the scoop:

The $50 Ticket This is the official regular ticket price. A $50 ticket covers the basic per person party costs + a small donation to the organization. (For those of you in-the-know with your tax deductions that's $20 tax-deductible.)

The $30 Ticket This is our budget option. It covers the basic per person costs, but doesn't come with a tax-deductible contribution. If you want to join us, we'd simply love to have you.

The $75 & $100 Tickets These are our generous supporter options. If you're able to support us on this level, we're incredibly grateful. (And you'll get credit for a tax-deductible contribution in the amount of $45 or $70 respectively.) There's no VIP seating or top-shelf bar at this level, but we can guarantee you a fantastic party and the deepest appreciation and admiration of the entire Rorschach tribe.

What if I love you guys, but have other plans for February 27th?
Just click here to make a fully tax-deductible contribution of any amount.

As always, if you have questions you can always reach us at

We can't wait to see you all!!
