    We don’t have family in town or any celebration planned this year, so I really want to go to this!!

  6. lorien Fletcher December 21, 2011 at 3:52 pm #

    would love to go to this! Haven’t been able to afford any holiday entertainment this year

    I am a single mom who is going on a date on friday for the first time in 2 years (post divorce) who is so wanting to celebrate Christmas in style. I am in full support of what this organization is trying to achieve…there are so many children out there with amazing musical talent and to be given an opportunity to see what they can do with their talent is a wonderful gift. Please pick me! Oh, and I love Patrick Lamb!

    I may be running a deficit in my budget, but I have a rich soul and I want to get FUNKY! Seriously, I do…

  9. Katie December 22, 2011 at 2:38 pm #

    My sister and I are still looking for the proper way to celebrate, dancing here would be way better than dancing in my apartment.

  10. Tonia December 22, 2011 at 2:40 pm #

    Sounds like the place to be…..let’s get funkafied!

  11. Robert Messick December 22, 2011 at 2:46 pm #

    This is my favorite tine of year! It’s been a really tough year being unemployed. No Christmas gifts for the nieces & nephews or my Mom. Would like a little Christmas cheer before I resume my job search.

  12. Emily Anne :) December 22, 2011 at 2:54 pm #

    I love Christmas… especially funkin’ Christmas :)

  13. Amanda December 22, 2011 at 3:07 pm #

    I’m not gonna give you a sob story about how broke I am because I’ve been unemployed and it’s x-mas and all…No, this is all about the free beer and Commotion (w/ Darwish). Come on, let’s funkin’ shake our fannies!

  14. Andrew December 22, 2011 at 3:14 pm #

    Lots of good responses already, but I’d really like to go to this for the sheer fact that I funkin’ LOVE Christmas!

  15. D Ness December 22, 2011 at 4:25 pm #

    we want the funk!!

  16. Matt December 22, 2011 at 4:36 pm #

  17. Ally December 22, 2011 at 5:00 pm #

    I would love to participate in this event. Please let me know if I win.

    I have to say that for everyone in the world who shares a remote Santa resemblance, at this time of year it is like they require a celebrity handler. Forget the anticipation of knowing Santa will be AT AN EVENT! I hold this job in high respect, there is no such thing as a mascot for Christmas, it is serious stuff.

    I’d like to go for many reasons. Appreciation for positive energy is highest on the list.

  19. Tonya December 22, 2011 at 6:32 pm #

    I’ve never been and it sounds like so much fun! Plus, I need to drink and dance my stress away

  20. john 3:16 December 22, 2011 at 6:53 pm #

    Viva las portland keeping portland weird baby!!!!

  21. Sarah Desrochers December 22, 2011 at 7:28 pm #

    I’d like to attend because just saying “Merry Funkin Christmas” is fun! :) I also didn’t have a company Christmas party to go to this year because I don’t work for a big corporation anymore, so I need somewhere cool to go!

  22. Donny December 22, 2011 at 7:36 pm #

    Send me to the Merry Funkin’ Christmas benefit for Ethos Music Center so I can get down and have a wonderful story to share with my family over Christmas Eve!

  23. Rob December 22, 2011 at 7:44 pm #

    darling you send me

  24. Dana December 22, 2011 at 8:53 pm #

    i need to shower an in town visitor with some pdx holiday cheer.

  25. Juli December 23, 2011 at 7:41 am #

    My friend volunteered to babysit my kid and I’m free! Please please please!!!

  26. Lori Callister December 23, 2011 at 10:22 am #

    Nothin’ says Christmas like a Funkin’ Christmas – I would so love to go and the holiday would come early for me if I do! I need some Christmas spirit in my life – a tough year, and I’m ready to be Funky!

  27. Jessy Faye December 23, 2011 at 11:08 am #

    I think I got what you need, dancing shoes and high energy. The time is now, let’s bring on the Funk!

  28. Joanna May November 23, 2012 at 10:06 am #

    My husband and I would love to get funky in style while supporting such a worthy cause. Please help us dance the night away!
