10th Annual Members' Party

March 2, 2014
7:00 pm

Come watch the Academy Awards with your fellow members and Colonial staff at our annual Members’ Party!

The Members’ Party is for current members as a thank you for their support over the year. Due to the small size of our lobby, we have found that we cannot comfortably accommodate more than 150 people during the cocktail hour portion of the party. Since the popularity of the party has grown over the years, we find ourselves in the position of having to divide our guest arrivals into two groups. The first 150 members and guests to RSVP are invited to join us at 7pm and all subsequent members who RSVP are invited to join us at 8:30pm –  in time for the Academy Awards broadcast. Our bar will be open all night and we’ll be sure to have plenty of desserts on hand for all of our guests. All guests who intend to drink wine or beer are asked to bring a bottle or six-pack to donate to our bar.

Membership Levels & Attending the Party

As Mary wrote in her letter in our Winter newsletter “In response to the suggestions from our ever helpful and supportive friends and fans, we will implement a nominal charge to our basic level members (students, seniors and individuals) to defray some of the expense of the party.  The party will remain a free benefit for the Producer member level and above, so if you have been considering increasing your membership level, now is a great time to do so!  Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support and patronage, and if you are a member, I hope to see you at the Members’ Party on Sunday, March 2.”

  • Student, Senior & Individual: $20 ticket per member (see below)
  • Producer: Member attends at no charge
  • Producer Couple: Both members attend at no charge
  • Mogul: Both members plus two guests attend at no charge
  • Angel: Both members plus four guests attend at no charge

Salon Fiber has been a favorite hair salon in Phoenixville since opening nearly 8 years ago. By the time you hit the red carpet you will be more than ready for your close-up!

Make-up applications (eyes and lips only) are $25 and up-do’s are $30. Payments can be made with cash directly to the artists.
