We raised over $5,000 for The Usual Song. Then, someone suggested that John Huff do a certain song from Rocky Horror, in full garb, if we all happened to raise, oh, $10,000. Kathy started to explain that this wouldn't work -- the guitar would catch on the fishnet stockings -- but John interrupted and said that if we raised $10,000 for Children's Hospital -- and the hospital gets matching funds -- he'd find a way to make it work.
We did. He did.
Kathleen Sobansky: You are the most altruistic and filthy-minded bunch.
I doubt we're going to be able to repeat this feat. Odds are it'll be $3,000 - $5,000 next year. But, wow.
