Okay, so you are wondering what you are going to do on New Year’s Eve 2020! No clubs to go to, all the regular outdoor gatherings restricted and you can’t handle Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen’s CNN television countdown.
So, courtesy of ace fund-raiser Ed Sousa you can tune into his `New Year’s Eve’ Pajama Party, to catch five hours of great music and a ton of celebrity guests while raising much-needed funds for Ronald McDonald House.
“We usually stage some major fundraiser on New Year’s Eve, last year we had a `Back To The Future’ themed event where we raised funds for `The Michael J Fox foundation we had the Delorean car from the movie and the live band was in costume,” noted Sousa. “So with all of the restrictions in place, we decided to stage a New Year’s Eve Pajama Party where people can curl up on the couch and still participate in a New Year’s Eve event.”
Hosted by Sousa and radio announcer Barry Davis, the show will consist of former MuchMusic vee-jay Michael Williams spinning tunes from between 8 pm. and 1 a.m New Year’s Eve with musicians from all over the world, checking in to wish viewers a Happy New Year while making their own personal requests.
Some of the celebrities tuning include members of Honeymoon Suite, The Romantics, The Spoons, Rational Youth, The Box, A Flock Of Seagulls, China Crisis, Darby Mills, Carole Pope, and Real Life direct from Australia plus many more during the five-hour telecast.
Tickets for this special telecast costs $25 if purchased before Christmas Day and $31 if registered after December 25th and you can access the telecast free of charge if you purchase a special Snooza one-piece lounger for $70 from the Sousa Entertainment website.
And for $183, viewers can contact the show organizers directly and make their own song request.
The $183 amount is significant because that is the cost of a one-night stay at Ronald McDonald House. “Even with the COVID 19 pandemic raging, McDonald House still offers free accommodation for families wishing to be close to their children receiving medical treatment,” Sousa noted. “It is our goal to raise funds to finance 20 families to attend McDonald House.
