Cup O’ Joe Coffeehouse, the new Friends Themed Coffeehouse opening in lil’ ol’ Twin Lakes, Wisconsin, has the opportunity to have THE ORANGE COUCH permanently! About 3 weeks ago, a representative from Marcus Theatres contacted us due to all of the attention we were getting from our social media posts. They said they had THE couch set from Warner Bros. Apparently Warner Bros had 20 replicas of the couches in circulation and they had one of the 20! They offered to give it to us in return for a donation of at least $7500 to Children’s Wisconsin (formerly Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Milwaukee) BY NOVEMBER 20, 2019 in order to be able to get it here. So, since we think outside of the box, as you have learned by now, Lol, we decided to put together this go fund me and offer you reserved time on the couch in return for your donation. We have an Orange couch, but since this is THE COUCH, and it will be very difficult to ever come in when it isn’t being used, we have put together a reasonable donation schedule so that you can reserve the couch and support your local Children’s Wisconsin at the same time. All donation increments are accepted and appreciated. Larger donation amounts will, as described below, secure a designated reservation for your Friends and/or Family on the Couch. This would be great for Birthday Parties, Bridal Showers, Private Parties, Photo Shoots, etc.
For every donation of $25 - you will secure a 15 minute reservation
For every donation of $50 - you will secure a 30 minute reservation
For every donation of $100 - you will secure a 1 HOUR reservation
For every donation of $200 - you will secure a 2 HOUR reservation
For every donation of $300+ you will secure a 3 HOUR reservation
This reservation will be good for, but limited to parties of 7 or less. All reservations will begin the week following the Grand Opening and first week of business. Reservation dates and times are on a first come first serve basis, once reservations are opened (reservation opening date to be announced, once Grand Opening date has been set). Entire net donation amount will go straight to Children’s Wisconsin. If we do not meet the required donation amount, all funds donated will be refunded.
This is all possible because Marcus Theaters is hosting their 4th annual Hollywood Movie Night benefiting Children’s Wisconsin. The event will be held on Thursday, November 21 at the Marcus Majestic Cinema of Brookfield.
· Guests will preview the new Frozen 2 movie before it officially hits theaters. Attendees can participate in family-friendly activities such as a hair station, snowflake memory games, build your own Olaf and meet with Elsa & Ana themselves. And, the event includes a pre-movie reception including cocktails, delicious tasting stations, silent auction and fundraising activities.
· Tickets cost $125 for adults and $100 for kids 17 and under, and can be purchased at chw.org/marcus. All proceeds from the event benefit Children’s Wisconsin.
· The event’s online auction is live and includes some interesting items – including the couch from the TV show Friends. This is a limited edition opportunity Marcus Theaters is providing to Friends fans—there were only 20 made and it comes with all of the extras… the coffee table, backdrop and rug from the coffee shop set featured on the show. Cup O’ Joe Coffeehouse, the Friends themed coffeehouse opening in Twin Lakes, has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to purchase the couch through the auction.
