People Rally Big Time For Jamie's Ball 2006!
That's right. The weather was about as nasty as it gets, with gusting winds and freezing rain, but the Party Faithful would not be daunted! While a lot of people bailed, almost 200 brave souls came out to support The Ball (many I've never met.) And, man, did they get their money's worth! Jen and Lauren did an amazing job warming up the crowd with some crazy i-DJing, while Special Guest MC Mark H Rooney kept things flowing with his signature...flair. The Prize Giveaway featured the most impressive list of donated prizes we've had yet, including a DVD Collection from Focus Features, a CD and DVD collection from Virgin Records, a digital camera from Digital Color Concepts, TWO i-Pod Nanos from Tekserve and a Sirius Satellite Radio and Boombox. From there, it was all about the dancing as DJ Fucci blew the inflatable roof right off the place and kept the crowd moving right up until they turned the lights on. Check out the updated Photos page and don't miss the first ever Ball video!

To those of you who came out in the crappy weather - I really can't thank you enough. We raised almost $3000 and the donations are still coming in! Huge thanks also to all the sponsors and everyone who donated something for the Prize Giveaway. Considering that every penny goes to the charities, the Ball wouldn't be possible without you.

Send me an e-mail if you want to be on next year's invite list and let me know if anyone has any suggestions for next year's Ball. For anyone who couldn't make it to the party, it's not too late! The Donate link above will work until the end of the year, so don't be shy.

Have a Ball, y'all.

JAMIE'S 3RD BALL WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!!

That's right! With over 250 people in attendance, we raised nearly $4000!! That's almost four times the total donations for the first two years! And the party was absolutely JUMPING! DJs Cheyenne and Juca kept everyone dancing and the half-priced drinks from Bacardi and Brooklyn Brewery were...well appreciated. We gave away some awesome, donated prizes including an i-Pod Mini, an 80-hour Tivo, and a DVD of "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind" signed by director Michel Gondry! The PHOTO section will be updated shortly with pictures from this year's party, so keep checking.

I want to personally thank EVERYONE who donated, sponsored, and came out to support an important cause.

Jamie's Ball: V Recap
Jamie's Ball V was an unqualified success! This year the gods smiled and we had some pretty good weather and the crowds responded. People turned out in big numbers and enjoyed the best party yet. Special Guest MC Evan Klein entertained with his particular brand of (dare I say?) comic genius (I do!) while DJ Chibi blew the roof off the joint and kept the dance floor packed. This year's prize giveaway was off the chain (as we used to say in Indiana) and got people in an absolute tizzy, with folks who won more than one prize clamoring to "trade-up." The prizes included a Canon digital camera from Digital Color Concepts, a DVD collection from Focus Films, a CD collection from Virgin Records, a video i-Pod from Tekserve and three, $500 dinner certificates from Assenzio restaurant! Yup, you heard right. A huge Thank You to everyone who donated such awesome prizes.
