NYLine III is a last-of-its-kind, three-week sidewalk line party to celebrate the release of "Revenge of the Sith" as a fundraiser for the Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation. This is your last chance to experience the pop-culture phenomenon of a line-up for a new "Star Wars" movie, and to do so at the bright center of the universe, New York City's Ziegfeld Theatre.
NYLine has secured a block of tickets for the May 19 midnight premiere of "Episode III" at the Ziegfeld, but insurance caps limit us to 350 members, and spots are filling up quickly!
Line members earn their tickets by showing up for shifts, which are weighted by difficulty. It's possible to earn a ticket in as few as 12 hours (overnight shifts on week nights), or as many as 48 hours (weekend afternoons and evenings). The time commitment is reduced for people coming from outside the tri-state area and eliminated altogether for our international members. Be sure to check our message boards for descriptions of the great activities we have planned during every shift throughout the line!
The NYLine presence in Midtown Manhattan helps raise awareness for our charity, the Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation. Since 1999, NYLine has raised more than $33,000 for Starlight. While fundraising isn't required to join NYLine, we strongly urge line members to use the Stand-A-Thon pledge forms to raise money for Starlight's Fun Center Program. In 2002, NYLine placed four Fun Centers in NYC hospitals; this year, we're hoping to shatter that record!
If you're in it for the reward, you'll be happy to know that each dollar you raise counts toward the point total that determines your place in line and your seat in the theater. Members raising more than $60 will receive an exclusive limited-edition shirt featuring our mascot, the Liberty Jedi, and if that isn't enough, the top fundraisers will also get other special prizes!
To be a part of all this, join NYLine III today...It is your destiny.
