The final count is in. We raised: $6096 for LGBTQ charities with Shakedown performer tips and Vagine Regime and Drag King / Queen bout tickets. $4702 for Prostate Cancer Foundation which included Magic Mike vs Chippendales bout tickets, and an additional $440 and one (literally torn in) half dollar for Magic Mike and $856.75 (including the other half of that torn dollar) for Chippendales in sweaty butt dollars. $4891 for the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada Drop In Centers from our gear raffle, most of which was won by one smart lady who bought $20 worth of tickets on the first day, LOL $1325 for Women's Sports Foundation in bout tickets for the rest of the games We swabbed 370 potential heroes for Be The Match bone marrow registry. And filled 2 giant 50 gallon barrels full of food for Fabulous Sin City Rollergirls Three Square food drive. For a grand total of $17.014.30 in charity at RollerCon 2016. Thank you! Next year? EVEN BETTER. #rollercon2016
Important. Last night some fools thought it would be funny to go on an off-limits safari on a ledge somewhere. Pool security was involved, our Dicks tried to intervene - long story short, any similar jackassery will result in the end of the 24h pool party. Please remind your friends about Rule #1: Don't be douche. Rule #2: See rule #1. I have also heard reports of insensitivity aka shithead comments from OUR attendees about gender-related issues. Zip it up. We're a big, inclusive community and we may not all agree, but we get to be who we are here and I demand that everyone be respectful, PERIOD. No exceptions. Leave your ~isms and attitudes at home and embrace - or at least respect - your family. Help your friends do the same. Be cool. Love, Mom aka Ivanna <3
Just a little reminder: please mind your stuff and look out for each other. Not just in Vegas - in life, also. But especially in Vegas.
