ODESSA, TX (KWES) - A pajama party flyer featuring scantily clad women went viral after social media users noticed the advertised location of the upcoming adult soiree: the Woodson Boys & Girls Club in Odessa.
The flyer was first sent to NewsWest 9's Facebook account on Wednesday night and reached thousands of other users within the next 24 hours.
The party is set to run from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturday, September 19 and costs prospective attendees $10 each to enter, according to information on the flyer.
The unexpected location is featured prominently on the bottom of the post in large purple letters.
Club directors responded with a mixture of shock and disappointment, and said they had never authorized such an event to take place at their facility.
David Chancellor, the Executive Director of the Odessa Boys & Girls Club, said he received dozens of phone calls, emails and text messages about the party after the flyer began circulating on Wednesday.
"I was like, 'You're crazy if you think that's going to happen at the [Boys & Girls] Club,'" he told NewsWest 9. "We don't know who really did it. It's got the wrong address on it... It's somewhere across the street from us."
The address, printed in smaller black font beneath the "Woodson Boys & Girls Club" heading, is 1001 E. Murphy St., a location in Woodson Park
"We're not sure if this is all an innocent mistake and the party is a real thing happening somewhere else [or] if this is somebody's idea of a prank," said Chancellor.
Bill Baty, the Boys & Girls Club Director, saw no humor in the situation.
"This is just disrespectful," he told NewsWest 9. "I grew up in this Boys Club, so I know the values of this Boys & Girls Club. [Renting out the facility for an adult party] is something I would never, ever do. [That would] disrespect [our] values and disrespect these kids."
According to Baty and Chancellor, the flyer fiasco could lead to serious consequences for club funding.
"All day today, we've been putting out fires because people now think we're into [hosting] adult risqué pajama parties at the club," said Chancellor. "Donors are calling too... and with the slow economy, donations are down 25 percent and we can't afford any more losses of donors."
