OFFICIAL RELEASE PARTY AND FUNDRAISER!
Come celebrate on December 2, 2022!
After close to 4 years of development we finally get to celebrate the launch of Paradise-Opoly. What better way to celebrate this monumental release than the same way we started developing it? TOGETHER!
The party will be held at the Elks Lodge in Paradise, CA. It will be a fun and memorable night to include food, drinks, games to play, lots of memorabilia of the game development and behind the scenes, a raffle contest with lots of prizes from different local vendors as well as some silent auction items for some really cool original hand-drawn artwork from the game, hand-made wood furniture and more. We’ll also have music, dancing, photo ops, trivia contest and I’m sure I’ll be making a speech or two at some point.
This will be a 21+ event so make sure to get the babysitters lined up!
The launch party will be a stand-alone fundraising event of which all the proceeds will be donated to the local non-profit, Regenerating Paradise(regeneratingparadise.org), who is doing fantastic work to bring more affordable, low-income housing projects to the Ridge. During this time of skyrocketing construction prices and housing costs this is more important than ever.
A single ticket price for the party is $25 per person(Paradise-Opoly pays the sales tax) if bought online in advance. They will be $35 at the door. Your ticket cost will include food, one drink ticket and two raffle tickets to get you started. But you’re going to want to buy more once you see all the great raffle prizes available! The silent auctions will have a set reserve price that is TBD.
Being auctioned are some one-of-a-kind original artworks from the game that were hand-drawn by Paradise local, Aja Mulford, who I was in art class with at PHS(Mr. Wrobel was the coolest!). These are so cool and I’m actually going to have a hard time parting with them but I know that someone will appreciate them greatly. Each original artwork will be signed, matted and mounted in a hand-made cedar frame with glass. The frames are being made by my father, Andy Stauss, who has been my biggest fan on this project and is my biggest fan in life. He has done woodworking and built houses pretty much as long as he’s lived and is finally getting back into it after having lost 100% of his shop and tools in the Camp Fire. To say the least, each of these keepsakes will have been crafted with pure heart and passion.
As for the rest of the raffle prizes most, if not all, will be great items donated from local vendors. I hope for this to be a fantastic turn out so we can raise lots of money for Regenerating Paradise.
Tickets will be emailed prior to the event. It is recommended to bring a printed copy of your tickets, but not required. We will be verifying each guest by name on the order so no duplicate tickets can be used.
There will be more details to come but I am so excited for this grand milestone to be shared with you all. The party is tentatively planned for Friday, December 2, 2022. It is possible, if the release is delayed for any reason, we will push the party to the following weekend. We just want folks to have a heads up so they can plan accordingly during the holidays.
I hope to see you there!
