Hey you all out there, we just got back late last night. Had a great time, was very busy the whole trip.. Ok here we go about the Benefit.

We arrived on tues. the 8th, and started running about getting donations for prizes for the raffle. All of friends down there were so great on what the donated. We also have to thank the gang at the Hideaway, (Joyce, Linda, Jerry, Chap, Ray, Carol, and all there little helpers) You all were great!!!!!

We purchased the food, had Chicken, ribs, chicken wings, potatoe salad, beans, and bread...

Ray helped so much on the cooking of the BBQ. Thanks bud!!!!!

Got up there early on Sat. Flyers were all over the island, and we had a listing in the Sun paper.. Started preping the food and Ray was tending the fire.

Belikin Dist. came out and put up a big tent.
As you all know Michelle was out in sea just churning just north of us, but turned out to be a beautiful day, with a couple of little showers, to cool everything off..

About 3pm, alot of people started showing up.

Dennis Wolfe started off the show first, and had Dale, Kieth, and James playing with him. During this we were serving food, selling drinks inside and on the outside bar, and were raffling off prizes.

After Dennis was done with his set, Barefoot Skinny started his show. What a show, he had Dale, Kieth, James, and others to join his show. Everyone was having a great time. The Benefit ended about 8pm. What a day!!!!

We also had local island bartenders, donated their time to work the outside bar, and Carol and Cheri did haircuts for donations.

Again We want to THANK the staff at the Hideaway for all their help and support, we could not have done it with out them. Also have to thank Casey for all his help too.
