As you’ve probably seen already, thanks to a vertitable flood of pledges from all of you we hit our funding goal overnight!

We, now — officially and 100% — have a party happening at the American Legion Hall in Hollywood on Saturday February 21! We are looking forward to seeing you there!

But this would never have happened without your support. You are all absolutely amazing — thank-you so much for backing us and our ability to put on a show.

We are humbled and grateful, and we’re really looking forward to making this a super night for everyone.

More than 25k pledges in 24 hours!

In around 24 hours we received more than $25,000 in pledges. This pushed our One Last Party campaign well past our $180,000 goal.

We will be continuing to fundraise up until Sunday night (January 18) to make our party even better.

Expected Party Guest and Rivendell Reveller perk levels will definitely be available through to the end of Friday Jan 16 (US west coast time). However, at that point we may close tickets at those perk levels, depending on the numbers we have. So if you’re keen for the dinner option, we recommend pledging before the end of Jan 16.

Otherwise, our Entish Entertainment pledge will be available right the way through until the close of the fundraiser this Sunday.

So, if you’re still considering attending, tickets are available through our Indiegogo campaign until this Sunday night (January 18) at 11.59 PST.

Pledge $10 or more and you could win this signed Desolation of Smaug poster!

one last party botfa poster One amazing TORn supporter has donated this Battle of the Five Armies poster (see the picture just to the right) signed at San Diego ComicCon by:

  • Dwalin — Graham McTavish
  • Gollum — Andy Serkis
  • Tauriel — Evangeline Lilly
  • Thranduil — Lee Pace
  • Legolas — Orlando Bloom
  • Bard — Luke Evans
  • Smaug — Benedict Cumberbatch

The poster (measuring 13′ by 20′), together with the holographic wristband that was needed to get it at SDCC, will be given away to one lucky supporter, chosen at random from all the pledges of $10 and above that we receive THIS WEEK (Monday 12th to Sunday 18th January).

Each new pledge of $10 or higher during this final week will receive a separate entry into the draw. That’s right: the more times you pledge, the more chances you have to win!

This fundraiser itself has proved to be a celebration of fandom — we know that even those supporters who can’t be with us in person in LA will be celebrating with us in spirit!
