5th Annual MuMu Party Gone Digital

The 5th Annual MuMu Party has gone digital!

From the Facebook Event Page:

Due to the Covid-19 global pandemic, the Imperial Royal Sovereign Court of the Desert Empire, Inc. made the hard decision to cancel the 5th Annual MuMu Party that was scheduled to take place at Flex Cocktail Lounge on May 16th. Jason and myself, felt that we should still hold this fun and creative event. With that in mind, we decided to take it digital this year! We need your help to make it happen!
This event will have three parts to it.

Part 1: We are asking for anyone who is willing to send a video of them performing (3-4 minutes filmed horizontally) or a video message that they want to give to the world (max 2 minutes) that will be edited into one video that will be uploaded to Youtube. This is opened to everyone and anyone that wants to participate in this. Please email videos to Empress Phat Patty at christophero1121@gmail.com by Saturday May 23rd at 8:00pm.

Part 2: The MuMu Contest!!! We are asking that anyone who wants to participate in the MuMu contest to please email Empress Phat Patty their picture to christophero1121@gmail.com by Saturday May 23rd at 8:00pm. The categories this year are: The Most Popular, The Most Creative, The Prettiest, and the Most Photogenic. We have the prizes on hand and will mail them out to the winners.

Part 3: There will be a Facebook Live on May 30th from 7:00pm-8:00pm with a select panel to discuss the MuMu Party, how the contest will work, and other various topics. This will happen right before the video launches at 8:00pm.

We are opening this up to anyone who wants to participate from the Court circuit, to the Rodeo circuit, to local performers, to anyone that wants to have fun!

Thank you so much for all of your love and support and hope that you will participate and enjoy this new digital event with us!

Love and light always!

For the community, through the court, from the heart:
Phat Patty
Elected Empress 22
