8. Fun AND Fundraising
Having fun and raising money for charity at the same time! Benefiting KOA Care Camps, where kids with cancer can have a real summer camp experience while continuing necessary medical treatments. Raffles, drawings and the famous “Hangover Classic Charity Walk.” This charity walk lives up to it’s name. Fearing participants may have a hangover from the night before, this charity walk is thankfully super short and this year the destination is a surprise! Waiting for you at the finish line / secret destination will be Capt. Josh with Trop Rock music and a party.
9. The Main Event
The main event is Saturday night with an attendees-only party at the San Carlos Institute featuring Howard Livingston and his Mile Marker 24 Band. If you’ve never seen Howard in this intimate venue, you are in for a treat! And you just might be in a conga line….
10. Bon Voyage Bloody Mary Bash
It’s so hard to leave the Keys…. The finale takes place at Kelly’s Caribbean Bar and it’ll be closed to the public on Sunday morning. Order a drink from the bar or partake in a Bloody Mary made just the way you want it while enjoying the music from trio Sunny Jim White, John Patti and Jimi Pappas!
