Preparation for the Fundraiser
Posted on Oct 2nd, 2016
Preparations began on Friday, Sep 30 for the 200 plus guests expected to attend the third annual Escape to the Tropics Blue Hawaii fundraiser the next day. A $20 ticket got a meeting up close and personal with The King Elvis, a complimentary Blue Hawaii cocktail and welcoming lei, an island-style meal followed by a lively auction of great items.
