BEST YEAR EVER
Our 8th annual Barefoot Children was the best ever raising a total of $8542 which is $2571 better than last year. In addition we had a hellva time with more people and more rooms than ever. Each of the two clubs (us and the Parrot Heads in Michiana split this between our chosen charities. This year we selected the Blue Star Mother's of SW Michigan. Our $4271 donation will certainly come in handy as they help our deployed military men and women. Events like this is why we always 'Party with a Purpose'.
This year's Friday entertainment was Mike Archer followed by Tropixplosion. Saturday started with our mystery bottle auction followed by our famous Room Crawl and Hallway Party featuring Two Dudes in Flip Flops. That evening we were serenaded by Erica Sunshine Lee during dinner followed by Johnny Russler and the Beach Bum Band. Later that evening (actually early Sunday morning) a jam session broke out in the hospitality room with Johnny, band and guests. Check out the above photos and see if you can pick out our PHiP President (yes he's disguised as Jake Elliot with a bottle of Malort). The Malort is a Chicago land drink but this year we may have moved it to Michigan. Make your plans to be there next January when we do it all over again. The tentative dates are Jan. 22 - 24 and we'll post it when all is confirmed.
