We are half way through the year which means we just passed Half-o-ween and it is almost time for our annual Black and Orange Bash, or “The Bob” as it is affectionately referred to by our Board of Directors. We can’t wait to put on another fabulous Black & Orange Bash for our members this year. We are so excited to be announcing our parade theme, king and queen, and winners of our special awards. Our special awards will be going to local people who were nominated by our members and judged by an outside group in areas that reflect our motto: Community, Courage, and Creativity. As always, we will have some entertainment, a silent auction, food, drink, and some wicked tunes for lots of dancing. I hope to see all of you there on Saturday, July 26 in your best black and orange outfit or costume.
Big thanks to all who came out for our annual Peanut Butter Cup Mini-Golf Tournament. We tried a new location this year at Don Carter’s and most of you were pleased with our new spot. We also had an entourage of “living obstacles” on the course this year to challenge you a little more. The Golf Bums dominated the other teams this year and our orange jacket went to Stan Sellers from the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank team and best child winner went to Joseph Curtis, son of board member, Jessica Bollinger Miller. Thanks to all who brought food and costume donations, and special thanks to event planners, Christine Blankenship and Stormy Hall, and to Judy Gonzales for securing some great door prizes.
