The Island Academy Pirate Party Fundraiser was a big success – good turn out and some great costumes. Everyone had a fun time. The kids loved limbo and bouncy tent. Adults were quite happy buying raffle tickets – playing poker – roulette – blackjack – bingo and chalupa [Mexican bingo].
Since it was a fundraiser karaoke had a new twist – the deal was if you got called out to sing and did not want to you had to match the final bid to be able to get out of it. Helda our queen of karaoke did a great job of raising money and getting people to sing. Lady Dixie got the highest bids – stole the show and got everyone grooving when she was called up to do Dancing Queen by Abba. Jace and Caleb were both a hit as well and of course Helda singing rolling on the river with Lady Dixie doing back up dancing was a perfect end to a wonderful night.
