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.

I LOVE PARROT HEAD EVENTS!!!
Yep, warm days are here, and we are all just itching to party! One great place to start is at our 16th Annual Beach Bike Poker Run! Whether it’s your first or your sixteenth ride, it’s an experience that offers wonderful memories and great stories that last forever! It’s a time when we all unite in one gigantic phlock and enjoy the day as only Parrot Heads can do. Even if you’re not a parrot head, come hang out and party with us; or even better, join us as a parrot head member online or at our May 3 Phlocking!
Registration for EIPHC Poker Run is online at www.emeraldisleparrotheads.com currently but will expire on May 4. If you register online, you save $5 per person. You can register live on May 18, 2019, day of event for $25.00.
While you are at it, don’t forget to decorate your bike and yourself in costume to win CASH PRIZES. The theme is “Daydreamin” so you can be anything you want! I’ve decided to become the image I love, a mermaid! Also, there are opportunities to win a 50/50 raffle, a “Scratch Off Board” Raffle, a silent auction bid and the purchase of a Mulligan card to aid your final poker hand and win cash! Be sure to come bringing cash, check, or credit card to participate in these fun and lively activities. Remember that what you spend at this event is going to the Semper Fi Fund! We are proud to sponsor them again this year to benefit local kids of wounded warriors to attend an outdoor kid’s camp and be matched with a high school mentor to assist them throughout the year! I love these kids!
Any other questions you have can be answered on our website at www.emeraldisleparrotheads.com ! From your friendly President a/k/a Mermaid, Jan H.
