General Event Info

A suitcase party is just that, a party where you bring a suitcase packed. Attendees come to the party with a suitcase packed, typically 2-3 days worth of travel needs. Once attendees are checked in, they are issued a unique number in the form of a baggage claim ticket or through another method. Suitcases are placed in safe keeping, like a coat check, and the attendee continues into the party to enjoy themselves, dance, drink, and have fun, just like any other party or charity event! At the end of the night, one of the numbers is drawn and they have a time frame to grab one other person, both their suitcases. IMMEDIATELY from the event, they are either transported to or placed on a private jet which will take them to a destination where they will enjoy an all-inclusive travel experience.

Attendees left behind continue to party until the close of the event!

A Fly Away is prize given away at the end of the night which includes an ALL-INCLUSIVE trip for two on a private jet to a destination pre-determined by the event organizers.

All-inclusive includes the following: 

  • Private Jet Round Trip
  • Transportation to and from the airports
  • Hotel or lodging for the duration of the getaway (double occupancy, winner and guest, one room acommodates both, no substitutions)
  • Food and/or food vouchers for each day
  • Any pre-determined activity which the event organizers have secured
  • If applicable, any other benefits determined necessary by the event organizers

You MUST be at least 21 years of age to attend!

A duffle bag or “weekender” size suitcase is recommended. You can pack whatever you would like for up to a 3-day trip, taking into consideration the time of the year.

Some specific suggestions, cocktail attire, swimsuit (hot tubs are usually available), active recreational attire, appropriate shoes and under garments as well.

Food and Beverage

A limited open bar is an all you can drink event where the beverage selection is limited to either select brands of liqour beer or wine, or limited to one type of drink per type of liquor, depending on the sponsorships, if any, secured by the event organizers.

Beer, Liqour and wine will be available, types and brands – to be determined

Fly Away

Winners must be present to win and are final. The Fly Away has no substitution dates and has no cash value. If a winner cannot make arrangements they will need to either, give the prize back in order for us to give it away again at the event OR they can give it freely (CANNOT BE SOLD) to someone else at the event of their choice to go in their place.

Just know, accommodations are double occupancy, which means you are sharing a hotel room. You may purchase an additional hotel room for the guest you choose, but that is on you and will not be covered by the event organizers, sponsors, or affiliates in any way.

A portion of your ticket purchase is Tax-Deductible.

Some people ask why 100% is not tax-deductible. According to the IRS tax code, if an attendee of a charitable event is receiving a benefit (food, beverage, activity, etc.) the fair market value of that benefit is not tax-deductible. Even if we get the full bar, food, etc. donated, you, the attendee are still recieving a value for your donation and therefore that portion, the “fair market value” is not tax-deductible.
