11/12 Alter Ego Society Costumed Fundraiser

--Press Release--
Details: November 12, 2011, 8pm-1am Ella St. Social Club, 714 SW 20th Place
Tickets start at $10 

The Alter Egos Society’s Hero/Villain Ceasefire is soon to return for a fifth year. On November 12 at 8pm, heroes, villains, sidekicks, minions, and ambivalent masterminds alike will set aside their weaponized superpowers and their moral differences for a single night of drinking, dancing, and superpowered high-fives. Our annual Ceasefire event is half party, half charity fundraiser for our favorite non-profit group, p:ear.

At this year’s Hero/Villain Ceasefire event you’ll be serenaded by nerdy and saucy sister act The Doubleclicks, and the autonomous android duo Robot Uprise will bring the dance tunes. Don your best spandex and tights for the chance to win one of several Costume Contest categories, or toughen up your trigger finger for a few rounds of appropriately themed classic console games provided by Ground Kontrol. And pick up a string of raffle tickets while you’re there... our raffle prizes often exceed $100 retail value per prize, and contain goodies like comic books, board games, and gift certificates. Full bar and food menu provided by our hosts Ella St. Social Club.

If you plan on attending the Ceasefire, we request that you attend costumed as a superhero or super villain of your own creation. It’s okay if you don’t have a solid origin story or your mask is a little loose, we won’t judge! But creative costuming is at the core of the Alter Egos Society; after all “wearing tights and capes, having fun for a better world” is our motto! And remember: it’s for the children.

Tickets are available online, and we offer a variety of event packages as incentive to help us raise even more money for p:ear. Admission start at $10 and goes on to include Alter Egos Society tshirts and dvds, sponsor swag, and even a professional photoshoot! You can purchase tickets online at alteregossociety.com/buy-ceasefire-tickets. Proceeds from the evening--including ticket sales, raffle entries, DVDs of our original short film, Archives of the Fantastic, and more--will be donated to the Alter Egos Society’s favorite organization, p:ear.

The Alter Egos Society Hero/Villain Ceasefire is limited to ages 21+ due to the nature of the event.
p:ear builds positive relationships with homeless and transitional youth, ages 15 to 24, through education, art and recreation to affirm personal worth and create more meaningful and healthier lives. Each year their programs serve almost 900 homeless and transitional young people. The Alter Egos Society has been proud to make regular donations to their cause, as it’s the best way we can think of to help our community and strengthen our future.

The Alter Egos Society is on a mission to explore the various mythos of superhero genres through costume making, role playing, film making and other forms of storytelling. The Alter Egos Society is also dedicated to having fun... which it believes does not have to exclude helping others or giving back to the community. In no way does the Alter Egos Society condone donning costumes to engage in anonymous vigilante activities. To learn more please visit www.alteregossociety.com."
