YOUR PHiP Meeting of the Minds Update

 

Hello Everyone!
Here is YOUR update on PHiP’s Meeting of the Minds 2019 “License to Chill” in Key West, Florida!
Well here we are… it’s already the month of May! Jimmy Buffett concerts are happening and people are registering and booking travel for the 28th annual PHiP Meeting of the Minds in Key West!
Behind The Scenes There Is A Ton of Team Work Happening To Support The Event!
I want to tell you that even though you only hear a report every few weeks things are brewing to make PHiP’s MOTM 2019 one to remember but is that anything new? Everyone MOTM is special. I cannot share details yet as plans are in the works and special segment embellishments are being planned but you need to be in Key West for this one! You can see the online schedule https://www.phip.com/meeting-schedule which is a great entertainment deal already…and all the way until the day of the start of the event things will be in the works that will deliver way more entertainment than you paid for and you can take my word for it. I just had an hour-long call with Tall Paul yesterday about the 2019 Beachside Album Hour on Saturday at PHiP’s MOTM where the Jimmy Buffett album “License to Chill” will be played from beginning to end. I know you are familiar with that one and you can only imagine how many guests there will be with backing from most of the Coral Reefer Band as well as other guest musicians. You have to be registered to see all these special events at the Casa Marina!

PHiP’s MOTM Charity Gift Basket Raffle

Here is a note from our charity raffle basket leadership team of Joe and Lorene: By now we’ve sent out an e-mail to all clubs and we hope you’ve had the opportunity to discuss it with your committees.  The e-mail was concerning a gift basket donation representing your club to the PHiP’s MOTM charity gift basket raffle. As you may or may not be aware all monies raised from the ticket sales for the gift basket raffle are donated to charities in the Key West area as we have no expenses thanks to our generous volunteers. There are many deserving charities and that makes the decision by the PHiP board more challenging but they take on this daunting task at the conclusion of each year’s MOTM and deserving charities benefit. We can’t say this enough, but we do want to say it one more time. Between the wonderful basket donations and the MOTM basket raffle volunteers with their dedication to hard work and the fun that we have when we get together as we  PARTY WITH A PURPOSE the gift basket raffle is something that we so look forward to being involved with each and every year. We want to thank each and every one of you in advance. QUESTIONS?  If you’ve got ‘em, please don’t hesitate to ask ‘em. we may not know all the answers but we do know who to ask. Here is our email contact below.
