    Did you ever get anything after you posted this email? Well, I hate to say this but, I know a friend who received the same exact email. Well, she just received it like 10 minutes ago and I figured I'd do my homework and see what I can find out about this annivesary event. Really, it would've made the news but, I haven't heard anything!

    Good Luck!
