Ladies and gentlemen, on behalf of Captain Robert Tonner, Tonner Air and the entire flight crew, welcome aboard! Prepare to take to the skies with Tonner as we take flight for the opening dessert event on Thursday evening! Meet old friends and make new ones as we take off, gliding through the Tonner skies! You’ll soar into the heavens with glee, as you discover your very special souvenir! So, ladies and gentlemen, Captain Tonner has turned on the Fasten Seat Belt sign, so put on your aviator sunglasses, leather bomber jackets, Captain’s hats and stewardess ensembles, and make sure your seat is in the upright position for take off!
Friday, May 18, 2012 11 am: A Wilde Flight
Ladies and gentlemen, Captain Tonner has turned on the fasten seat belt sign again. We are now crossing a zone of turbulence. Please return to your seats, and be prepared for audience participation! Looks like things could get a little Wilde on this flight… Join us for a little fun as we maneuver through the heavens, where brunch will be served and where Special Guests Evangeline Ghastly, Ellowyne Wilde and Lizette Dionne will be making an appearance, too!
Please note: The special dolls for this event will be sold separately.

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and what you’ll find at this amazing dinner event is truly a diamond in the rough!

Come decked out in your finest Christmas attire (a hideously-festive sweater, a fun Christmas hat, etc), and prepare to be judged! And because you’ve all been good little boys and girls, she wants to make sure you leave this event with a very special souvenir, tailored just for you: An Amelia Thimble Gift Set! Sew, (!) it seams (ha! - oh someone stop us!) that this is not an event you would want to miss!

You’ll also get a chance to catch an incredible presentation of the fascinating, fashionable history of costumes of Super Heroines that you won’t want to miss. Join us in celebration of one of the greatest champions for women’s liberation of all time!
Saturday, May 19, 2012 6pm: Flights of Fancy
As they say, birds of a feather flock together, so come and flock with us at this lark of a banquet dinner! Put all your eggs in one basket and join us for a fowl of a good time! Rare and exotic birds are the name of this game (Get it? Game??), so find a crest of your finest feather, or panache of plume, or even a tuft of tail (faux, of course!) with which to adorn yourself for an evening full of cock-a-doodle-doo! You know what they say: A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, so come on down and shake your tail feather, where we will have a glorious night of dinner and dancing! Get a bird’s eye view of the delicate but sophisticated souvenir and the intricate centerpiece, and your heart will be as free as a bird! If you miss this fabulous occasion, we can assure you, your goose will be cooked, and you’ll be as mad as a wet hen!
Saturday, May 19 9pm: Angry Birds Pajama Party!!
Come and party down with Team Tonner, but do it in the utmost of comforts: Your pajamas! And the more festive your pajamas, the better, since there will be our famous PJ Contest, judged by the man of the hour: Mr. Robert Tonner! Here are the categories: Birds, Aviation (anything that flies will fly!), and Superhero! And don’t forget about the remarkable Raffle drawing, put together by the phenomenal Raffle Committee! Be there or be [ ]!
Sunday, May 20, 2012 9am: Bon Voyage
Think famous goodbyes, departures and takeoffs for this Sunday morning breakfast buffet! We’ll all dine together one last time, and then of course, we’ll begin our infamous Charity Auction! You’ll get to oooohhh and aaaahhhhh over the many wonderful OOAKs, and some of you will be lucky enough to even leave with one! Worry not, dear Collect-Os, you won’t be leaving empty-handed, there will be one more parting gift from Tonner! And then we’ll say our farewells….so long, and Bon Voyage!
