    Whatever Lola Wants: Cancer benefit/ Merfriendly pool party August 16/17 in Dallas!

    Hi Everyone!

    I wanted to post the information about the cancer benefit pool party I mentioned in a previous thread. I will be there as a volunteer mermaid (hopefully in my new FinFolk tail!) taking photos with people both days. It would be great if we had more Mers there and the FOE pool is so amazing it was named one of the best pools in Dallas by the Dallas Observer: http://www.dallasobserver.com/bestof...-pool-1929878/

    The Facebook event is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/5530...075/?ref=br_tf

    This is a poolside benefit for one of our Dallas Burlesque stars, Lola LaRue. We are trying to help her pay for every day life expenses like rent, utility bills and food while taking Chemotherapy for Lymphoma as she cannot currently work as either a nurser (her day job) or a burlesque performer.

    The Dallas Fraternal Order of Eagles 3108, have been so kind as to give us an entire weekend to run concssions at thier pool and donate ALL the money to help Lola Larue out.

    Saturday August 16th and Sunday August 17th, we will have local Burly Q volunteers manning the outside grill, prepping your buns, and serving you up a plate of generosity, all in the name of LOLA! All proceeds from concession sales that weekend will directly benefit Lola!

    Family friendly poolside fun, food, with special guests (Mermaids!) that will be on hand to make this weekend very special !

    If you have never been to the Fraternal Order of Eagles in Dallas, it has one of the most preferred pools in Dallas (small cover to get in) with officially the coldest pool water in town, and it is gonna be hot that day! F.O.E. has great air conditioned indoor facilities with a fully stocked bar and games, as well as two outdoor bars (they added a brand new bar this year!). For the family, there is a sweet kiddie pool, a small play area, and picnic facilities. The FOE also boasts a huge volleyball area for even more fun!

    Please join us for one or both days as we have fun for a great cause!

    Please feel free to ask any questions here or pm me for more info!

    News on Lola! She's got 3 more months of chemo to go but:

    Good news, family and friends!!!!
    Preliminary readings of my last PET scan show a decrease in tumor sizes! This current chemo schedule is working!! I'm officially halfway done. 3 more months to go!

    Thank you all for your healing thoughts and prayers. You may never fully understand how much your support means to me!

    Hiya Blaze! I should have my tail (possibly tails) finished by then if you need or want another mermaid there.

    All mermaids are welcome & *VERY MUCH* wanted but you will still have to pay the admission fee.

    Paying the admission is no big deal.

    Nope I decided to pass on the upgrade. They are awesome but I actually like the sleeker look.

    Just found out my cousin needs me to watch her kids on the 16th because there is a cowboy's game that day and she works at the stadium. So depending on how much money I have will determine if I bring the kids or if I wait & come on the 17th.

    I am excited to go--it gives me a deadline to finish my silicone tail by! Only 19 days to go!
    Once upon a time I was known as Seavanna. Going by Seatan these days. I always wanted to be the high lord of underwater hell.

    Darn right it's too hot.

    I'll be there at some point too though I may not be in my tail since my monofin is broken. Mom is trying to cut me a new insert from a piece of Lexan I bought at HomeDepot today. -crosses fingers that it works- The piece was a little too small but she thinks she can make it work.

    I certainly hope otherwise I'll be spending more money when the company finally gets more inserts back in stock.
