The problem with such an event is that it will be celebrated all over
the Debian community, so I am not sure the DPL can commit to attend
every Lenny release party in the world. Of course, if your Lenny day is
slightly delayed after the release, it might fit his schedule, you will
have to ask.
In general, you can assume there will be various "Lenny day" style
events all over the world, some just get-togethers in a pub, some maybe
more elaborate. Maybe you can start a wiki page on wiki.debian.org to
organize the celebrations, and also brainstorm about what could be done
there (apart from celebrating, of course).
