A Note on PayPal

November 29, 2013

We have had a clarification from PayPal – when you send us money via PayPal, please indicate that you are “sending money to friends” – this cuts down our fees and then PayPal doesn’t think we need to ship something to you. Note that we will not be shipping you a paper ticket! All names go on the will-call list.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact us either via this blog, or at gaslightgal@gmail.com. We look forward to seeing you in January!

Thanks to those who’ve already registered for the Gala! We are excited to see you!

If you send money via PayPal, please include your e-mail address in the message, along with names/scions of attendees. Otherwise, we can’t see your e-mail address, and then we can’t match e-mails and names. Then we won’t be able to contact the right people! (To hit you up for toasts and skits, etc.)

We can take registrations in advance of payments, so if you are mailing a check, let us know and we’ll put your name on the list!

Finally, please be aware that we won’t be sending you a physical ticket – all our entries are “will call.” But give us feedback – would you prefer a ticket be mailed to you? One that you could print out?

More updates will be posted as they are available! In the meantime, have a Happy Thanksgiving!

The 2014 Gaslight Gala will be held on January 17, 2014, from 7-11 pm, at

The Dove Parlour
228 Thompson Street
New York, NY 10012 (Map)

Ticket price of $105 includes open bar; those under 21 will have a reduced price of $75. Suggested dress is formal, but Victorian costume is also appropriate.

To register by mail, send your check to Angela Williams-Dunford at 414 E. 136th St, Bronx, NY, 10454. To register electronically, PayPal to gaslightgal@gmail.com. Please include the names of all attendees in your party as well as scion/society affiliations (if any).

We are currently looking for program items, so let us know how you would like to participate! Toasts, readings, sketches, music, puppet shows, etc. are all welcome; if you can create it, we want to share it! (Displays of athleticism and derring-do will have to be cleared with the Dove before approval.)

We are also in need of items for our raffle/auction; proceeds from these events help us keep the Gala running.

Please send program items and raffle contributions to Becky at gaslightgal@gmail.com.

If you would like to include an item in the attendee packets, please contact Carol Fish at CindersFish@aol.com.

The Gaslight Gala is open to all Sherlockians, regardless of age, scion/society affiliation, academic standing, type of superpower, radio frequency, or Michelin star rating. We pride ourselves on being a fun and inclusive event that mingles our love of the Sherlockian canon with a good dose of humor and friendship. It is a privilege to carry on the tradition of the Gaslight Gala, and we look forward to seeing you there!
