As stated above, Willie Nelson will be Hulaween’s NYRP Special Honoree, for all of his environmental work, with Stevie Nicks as the featured performer. Don’t be surprised if we get some incredible duets. Some of you old Bette fans may remember reading Rolling Stone magazine’s gossip column back in the early 70’s…at one point there was talk of Bette recording songs from Willie’s classic The Red-Headed Stranger…at least I think I read that or maybe I was just high!
Joy Behar will be the guest auctioneer this year. Look for one of the items auctioned to be Star Jone’s dignity. Should be cheap.
The newsletter also says there will be some surprise guests there as well. Boo!
Also the prices are out for the event. They are as follows:
Nui Nui Hui (The Great Committee)
Please purchase a minimum of one table to join our Great Committee
Bette’s 61st Birthday Table: $61,000.00: The big thing about buying a ticket for this table is that if you respond by August 31, 2006, you and a guest will be invited to a private kick-off cocktail party at Bette’s home. Table for 10 at an elevated, rarified seating and special year round NYRP priveldeges (I am so not there! LOL)
