It was a staple, almost a cliché, decades ago .. the Tupperware party. You might not have heard much about it lately – but it’s never really gone away. Proof: There’s a big fun one this Friday night at the Senior Center of West Seattle (WSB sponsor). Tickets are free; the Tupperware benefits local seniors. The announcement:

Senior Center of West Seattle announced plans today to host a first of its kind Tupperware party to raise funds for Seattle seniors. The event is scheduled to take place on Friday, October 18th, at the Senior Center, located at 4217 SW Oregon Street, in The Junction.

Entertainment for the event will be provided by Seattle’s very own Sylvia O’ Stayformore & LaTrina Bidet, who will also be acting as the mistresses of ceremony and co-hosts for this landmark charity event.

“We are very excited to be hosting such a groundbreaking and unconventional event to raise funds and create awareness about the various services offered by our organization to the community,” said Karen Sisson, the Executive Director at The Senior Center of West Seattle.

According to Sisson, Tupperware products will be available for purchase throughout the evening, with up to 40% of all the proceeds being donated to The Senior Center. She added that the event is open to all age groups, and promises to be a memorable night full of good food, fun, and laughter, for all the guests.

Among the supporters of this spectacular event are Trader Joe’s, Nerium Skin Care, and the nonprofit organization, Gays for Good/Seattle. Event guests will be able to sample delectable offerings from a menu of 1950′s retrothemed cuisine, prepared specially for this occasion.

A limited number of tickets for this free event are available via The Senior Center website at www.sc-ws.org or by calling (206) 932-4044. All donations are accepted and greatly appreciated.

  2. For anyone who is interested in 50′s culture and the history of Tupperware, PBS did a fascinating feature on ‘American Experience’ that is well worth watching:

    . when I was a kid, Tupperware was great for keeping my granola fresh. When I got older, I was very disappointed that I couldn’t store my merlot in Tupperware because it got an odd taste. However, the popsicle makers were great for making winecicles.

  4. Has Tupperware come into the new age of safe plastics with no PCB’s? Using any type of plastic that is not pcb safe is dangerous!

  5. Silly,

    You’ve mistaken BPA’s for PCB’s. But both ARE dangerous, for certain.
