The Prize Drawing
Ricky: (Go on. You’re supposed to be the front man, so say it.)
Vic: (I’m going to get you for this, Ricky. And the rest of you, too.) Hi, everyone! I just want to take a minute to thank you all for coming out here this weekend. We hope you had a great time helping raise funds for a good cause.
Nevin: The bunnies at Rabbit Rescue of Ontario!
Vic: Uh, right. Even though we got kicked out of Canada. No hard feelings.
Bo: It could’ve happened to anyone.
Kalila: (No, sleazy, it could’ve only happened to you. Now, shut up.)
Vic: We have a few prizes we want to announce. In the Bunny Rocker category, which is only for our performers, we have some rock star picture frames. Nevin, please tell us who the winners are.
Nevin: I got one of the bunnies to draw from a hat. And the winners are Sam, Mario, and Elvis!
Vic: Bunnies, have your humans give us your mailing address, and these will go out in the next few days. Now for the guest prizes. First, we have a selection of bunny-themed treats for humans.
Bo: That would be me!
Kalila: You’re not bunny-themed.
Bo: I’ll wear a costume, if it will turn them on. I’m here to please.
Vic: Actually, the prize is candy, not an incubus bass player. And the winner is…come on, Nevin. Who is it?
Nevin: Lily from Ontario!
Vic: Congratulations, Lily. We’ll put you in touch with the prize donor after we finish up here tonight. The next prize is a Bunny Benefit Bash t-shirt.
Nevin: The winner is Ariel from Michigan!
Vic: Great. Let us know what style and size you want, and where to send it. Next we have two hand-knitted bunnies.
Nevin: They’re from the UK, so they’re extra-special.
Vic: Just tell us who the winners are, please.
Nevin: Amy from San Diego and Beezer from San Francisco!
Vic: Congratulations to our guests from California. And finally, the grand prize is a Moku Hanga woodblock print by the very talented artist, Diana Moll.
Nevin: Wow, this is lovely. I wish I could keep it.
Kalila: Buy your own off her Etsy site. Now go on, announce the winner.
Nevin: The winner is: Carrots from Brighton in the UK!
Vic: Congratulations, Carrots. I’m sure it will look terrific on your human's wall. (Hey, Ricky, that’s what humans usually do with these things, right?)
Ricky: (Yes, Vic. Please continue.)
Vic: And that’s it for the prizes—
Nevin: The best prize is that we raised money for the bunnies!
Vic: Uh, sure.
Kalila: It is, Vic. Give me that microphone, if you’re too cool a vampire to be enthusiastic about this. Hi, everyone! We’re really excited to see how many of you came out here this weekend to support the bunnies and to support us. Rabbits make terrific pets, but they’re not for everyone. They’re a commitment and a responsibility, like any other living creature. I know this because I have a pet of my own, and he’s a lot of trouble.
Ricky: (Kalila, I am not a pet.)
Kalila: More trouble than you can possibly imagine. But having a pet is rewarding too, so if you think a rabbit is what you want, study up on it, like I did with my human.
Ricky: (I’m going to kill you, Kalila.)
Kalila: (Good luck with that. I’m immortal.) Folks, there are organizations in your home town that can teach you about rabbits and help you decide if it’s the right pet for you. Or do some research online. Even if a rabbit in your home isn’t the right choice, you can sponsor one online or donate to one of the many fine organizations that help bunnies. Just remember that all living creatures deserve our support. We all have the same creator and we have to share this planet, so let’s make it a better place for all of us.
Nevin: (Uh, Kalila? You’re forgetting something.)
Kalila: (I am? Oh, yes.) Bunnies Rock!
Ricky: Well, that’s it folks! We have to-go containers if anyone wants to take some leftovers home with them. Be sure to check back here on Thursday, April 2nd, for a re-cap and information about when the Bunny Benefit Bash scrapbook will be online! Good night, everyone. Bunnies Rock!
