I’m still asked questions about our club so here are some facts I’d like to share.
The Emerald Isle Parrot Head Club (EIPHC) was founded in 2002. We are a nonprofit social organization for people interested in Jimmy Buffett, Trop Rock music and a tropical spirit. Our purpose is to assist in community outreach programs and to provide members with a means of phun and diverse social interaction. We support many charities each year through our events and volunteer hours. Our club serves the Carteret and Onslow County areas and have members throughout the state.
We truly love and support the message of “Party with a Purpose!” There’s a lot of party and a lot of purpose! Our members gather for monthly phlockings where we enjoy music, food, games and participate in a fundraiser such as a 50/50 raffle to benefit designated charities in our area. Throughout the year many other events are held, some large and some small. There are things to do every month. We also volunteer to assist other organizations in the community. Our two main fundraisers each year are the Beach Bike Poker Run held in May and the Island Santa Bar Crawl held in December. These weekends are filled with over 300 participants raising money for kids associated with Semper Fi Fund Kids Camp and Make a Wish, Eastern North Carolina, respectively. Last year these two fundraisers alone brought well over $35,000.
Come join us and have yourself the time of your life while changing the lives of others! As always, visit our website at emeraldisleparrotheads.com to learn more! I’ll see you at the March 6 Phlocking where we’ll “Party with a Purpose!” Jan Hicks, President
