KKIII Kiving In Sin 2

Posted on 11/07/2013
The KISS Kruise III Living In Sin 2 Pre Party ROCKED the Holiday Inn at the Port of Miami!! The Breast Cancer Research Foundation was our choice of charity this year. The LIS party was held 2 days before the Kruise started, and it was casual and fun for everyone. It was for friends (old and new) from around the world to get together and have a good time. We had a DJ spinning KISS tunes all party long. Andy and I worked to gather donations all year long for our raffles, which was a great success. This year the grand prize was a Cort Gene Simmons GS Punisher 2 Bass Guitar with case ! Our raffle tickets were $1.00 ea for the general raffle and $5.00 ea for the bass. We had our resident Gene Simmons pulling the winning raffle tickets. This year we were honored to have Lydia Criss join us. She brought a stock pile of her book "Sealed with a Kiss", and sold every one of them, and graciously donated a percentage of her sales to our charity. Lydia also held a Q&A with the fans, which was a big hit, and quite entertaining ;-) Maria Contessa ( Original Costume Designer for KISS 1973-1982) dropped by the party for a couple of hours. She had her picture taken with fans and signed autographs. Alan G. Parker ( director of the forthcoming official Kiss movie You Wanted The Best... You Got The Best) also mixed and mingled with the crowd. We gave away lots of KISS merchandise and goodies. The evening was a great success, The KISS Army/KISS Navy helped us raise of total of $7165.98 to help KISS Cancer goodbye !!!!!!!! We would like to thank everyone for their generosity, support and kindness in our efforts this year!! Again, Andy, my wife Denise, and myself would like to thank Lydia Criss, Maureen Moyen, Andrew DjNoiz Rodriguez, Jim Madden, Tina Malloy, Carmela Stearns, Julie Frazier, John Friedrich, Maria Contessa, Pasquale Vari and Port of Miami Holiday Inn................and all you krazy krazy KISS fans out there for all of your generosity, support and friendship !
