Our 9th annual Barefoot Children is in the books and we raised a total of $4527.40 this year.
With our half we donated $2263.70 to the Marie Yeager Cancer Center!!!
This makes a total of $41,252.61 we've raised and donated the past 9 years from our
Barefoot in the Sand Weekends.
We broke in a new host this year by moving to the Holiday Inn Express in Mishawaka, IN. With everything under one room nobody had to venture outdoors into the white wastland. Each of the two clubs (us and the Parrot Heads in Michiana split the proceeds between chosen charities. This year we selected the Marie Yeager Cancer Center Compassion Program. Our donation will certainly come in handy as it will help pay for needed tests and transportation for those who need a little assistance. Events like this is why we always 'Party with a Purpose'.
This year's Friday entertainment began with Don Middlebrook followed by Tropixplosion. Saturday began with a new pancake breakfast in the hospitality room followed by our mystery bottle auction. The afternoon started with our famous Room Crawl and Hallway Party featuring Two Dudes in Flip Flops. When that was done we played Bingo and Bra Pong in the hospitality room. That evening the night kicked off with Jim Hoehn followed by Pirates, Guitars and Beachfront Bars until the wee hours. Make your plans to be there next January when we do it all over again. The dates are yet to be confirmed but look for a notice soon.
