Two HUGE Smooch! Project Milestone Events

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

Please plan to join us as we celebrate the 5-year anniversary of The Smooch! Project.


Please join us for an internationally-themed anniversary celebration dinner. The future of The Smooch! Project is world-wide and to kick-off our new vision for the future, we’re teaming up with the Midtown Global Market to offer an unforgettable evening of food & fun. There’ll be a multitude of gifts from around the world offered at our silent auction. Here’s the details:

Saturday, April 30, 2011
The party begins at 5. Dinner at 6.
Sheraton Minneapolis Midtown
2901 Chicago Avenue South
Minneapolis, MN 55407

Think Caribbean. Think Food. Think Fun. Tickets are $50 per person. Upon arrival, our guests will receive a $20 gift certificate toward the purchase of a matted, ready-to-frame print of their choice selected from The Smooch! Project Archive (or their private gallery) and personally signed by the photographer. And the food! Make your own Mexican feast of tacos with all the freshest ingredients, topped off with the traditional Churros dessert. Yum! Yum! Yum!

The evening will also include a very special guest: The woman who gave the photographer the all important first smooch that began this epic effort to collect 10,000 photographs from around the world.

There will be lots of amazing deals: Beautiful & useful auction items gathered from around the world. Our top auction prize: A 7-day vacation at Casa Sirena, a beautiful six-room boutique hotel on a Caribbean island just a short 20-minute ferry ride from Cancun.

Smooch! history in the making and we’re so excited! If you haven’t yet had an opportunity to participate in The Smooch!

    I believe that The Smooch! Project is the closest thing to world peace that I will see in my lifetime.  Not that I wouldn’t love world peace of course . . . But, hey — I’m 54!
