Sue Peel’s Mad Hatters, Steampunk Celebration for GLFB

How do you celebrate Sue Peel’s collection of over 100 hats? Well that’s easy…have a Capitol Steam party. That’s right folks, we are throwing another steampunk* party but this one has a twist. We are throwing this party in Sues name but the door proceeds are going to the Greater Lansing Food Bank.
*There’s two simple rules:
1. Wear a hat (the crazier the better)
2. Admission will be two cans of food (non perishables) minimum or $5.
Sue Peel accepted my challenge and is on her way to 100 hats. Let’s accept this challenge and raise 100 cans of food for GLFB.
Van Helsteam is in! He’ll be back to fill the room with amazing music we all love to hear.
Special guest performance by legendary group, The Madd Hatters Guild.
Have your picture taken on an original 1910 camera and purchase the tin type print from photographer Victor Vague.
Also, Candice Wilmore will be returning with her digital photography.
Don’t miss this opportunity to join Cap Steam friends while supporting an amazing cause.
(Steampunk, Pirate, or Ren Fare Attire preferred but not mandatory. Hats however are. lol)
