Walden Inn and United Way: Have a 'groovy' New Year's Eve

Wednesday, December 26, 2007

The Walden Inn and Conference Center invites you to have a "groovy" New Year's Eve and to start 2008 on a charitable foot by attending a party to benefit the United Way of Putnam County.

"For the second year in a row, the Walden Inn has graciously promised $2,500 to the United Way from its New Year's Eve celebration proceeds," said Cathryn Ensley, Executive Director of the United Way of Putnam County. "We appreciate the Walden Inn's continued generosity, and hope area residents will support the event. It promises to be a great time."

Among the highlights of the evening will be a live performance Forever The Tribute, a Beatles tribute band that has been touring the nation and taking people back to the 1960s for more than a decade. Comedian Tom Made, who is nationally recognized for getting revenge on annoying telemarketers and anything else that perturbs Americans, will also perform, and D.J. Jason Hartman's Sound Investment Productions will provide dance selections.

The "Celebration" package, selling for $195 per couple, includes dinner, entertainment, two-hour open bar, continental breakfast and a champagne toast at Midnight. The "Premier" package, for $295 per couple includes everything in the "Celebration" package plus overnight accommodations and a commemorative photo.

Eitel's flowers and Gifts will provide roses and Classic Flooring will provide a red carpet for arriving guests.

Childcare is available on a limited basis for $25.

Thats a great idea and The United Way is a great charity to support. But, why short notice on the invite? Most residents have planned their evening by now. Other places you have to reserve seats and once you reserve you are committed. This would have been a great option to have back in late Nov. early December. Hopefully it will be back again next year and we have an earlier invite to the party. Other than that, everyone be safe and enjoy the holiday!

Great idea, however, don't y'all think it's a little pricey? We're not in the big city like New York, California or Indianapolis. The rooms are not that great. They're comparible to the Super 8 or Holiday Inn Express. Heck, even those two hotels are just as nice if not better. (Their rooms I mean).

If it were for purely profit and no charity, I would agree on being way over priced. You get to end this year and start the new year supporting a worthwhile cause. Just an added bonus. No matter what people do this year. Be Safe.
