I would love to be a part of this. I have never been to Vegas and it would be so exciting! Since I have never been I really think I wouldn't be any help in planning. I hope this does take off and keep me posted! Please!!

I'd like to make a suggestion. Do a simpler idea and one that won't imply possible misbehavior. How about adjusting the primary purpose and venue. Seminars that are designed to provide solid information and link people closer to the bureau of prisons, etc., and have the venue somewhere like Orlando with a family theme versus all the implications Las Vegas brings. We could ask counselors and others from the prison/criminal justice system to participate. It would open lines of communication, allow people like prison employees, lawyers and judges to meet the people on the outside who are most affected, etc. The idea of a gathering is great. I'm happy to help plan, I have experience with event planning. I own businesses in Orlando and have an interest in transforming prison time into true rehabilitation. I'm happy to donate my time and resources to ensure families have a good time and meaningful experience. Anyone have opinions here?

There are all different kinds of Get2Gethers. Some are educational and include speakers etc, some are family BBQ's, there is room for all of these things. Many families who have someone in prison do not have the financial resources to travel far. From what I have seen, regional Get2Gethers are successful, especially in this economy. The other issue is that laws vary from state to state so sometimes the info does not apply.

Yes, this is Sin City, I live here now. It is not for everyone, and it is a playground for Californians. A place to unwind, a place to play, and it is very affordable. With the numbers that are incarcerated, there is plenty of room for Get2Gethers in every state!
