"Mission possible: Should you decide to accept this assignment, you must call 817-731-0833, ext. 15, today, the last day to join this dicey operation. Give the code word: Appleman 007.
Because of its sensitivity, this is classified as "A Secret Affair." Launch: Sept. 17. Rendezvous: Omni Fort Worth Hotel. Zero hour: 6:30 p.m.
Operatives will infiltrate the Fort Worth Opera Ball and blend in, wearing black-tie evening dress, assuming the role of a person of largess.
Target the silent-auction destination packages to Halekulani on the Beach at Waikiki, Hawaii, and The Cloister Sea Island in Georgia. Acquire the Tag Heuer ladies' steel-and-diamond watch from Haltom's Jewelers. Bid incognito as necessary to accomplish the task using your personal code and touch pads overtly held by undercover personnel.
Continue your cover through dinner, espying the encrypted table decorations by Bill Bostleman of Flowers on the Square. Further the intelligence-gathering après-le-dîner at the gaming tables. Engage operation commander Sandy Cook for further instructions. Seek out and employ these strategic mission planners as needed: Emily Fine, Krystal Fish, Susan Coulter, JoAnn Patton, Susan LaNasa, Diane Johnson and Liz Semrad.
Secure your $350 single-operative ticket today from Jen Appleman, firstname.lastname@example.org, or confirm a base of operations team table of 10 starting at $3,500.
Mission measure of success: the continued educational and operational vibrancy of the Children's Opera Theatre, Fort Worth Opera Studio and Fort Worth Opera Festival.
