Over 25 Years of Partying with a Purpose!
Welcome to the Parrot Heads of Central Florida, based in Orlando, FL and serving the Greater Orlando area!
Latest PHCF News
- $184.00 was raised during May’s PHlocking, and these went to benefit A Chosen Child Adoption Agency – thank you for the suggestion of such a worthy cause, Megan!!
- The Adopt-a-Villa in May was a very productive morning of ripping out existing old landscaping and beautifying our PHCF Villas. Trees were trimmed, plants were placed, both manual and equipment labor dug lots of holes, leaves were raked, and George and Lisa Schott treated us all to a pizza lunch!! We very much appreciate all who came to help.
- There was also a quarterly Adopt-a-Shore last month where 34 of our PHriends left the beach ‘a little better than they found it’, Jeannie won the ‘Trash Lei’ (and a bit of a cash reward), and all enjoyed a PHun lunch at Rusty’s. If you have a suggestion for a shore in that area desperately in need of our pick-up expertise, please be sure to let Susan and/or Rick Turner know the details and location.
A Quick Word from Your President
Kiwi’s has been our PHlocking ‘home’ now for the past six months. We have been receiving excellent reviews of the venue, and your Council of PHeathers has been surveying the PHlock for feedback — if you have anything you’d like to add, be sure to seek out one of the Officers to share.
Don’t forget to add this quarter’s Adopt-a-Latitude to your calendar – the more PHolks that attend will help to ensure a quickly cleaned South Street!
The 5th Annual Summer Kayak Picnic announcement has been sent – have you RSVP’d to attend?? We are collaborating with our sister club, Space Coast Parrothead Club to maximize on the PHun, and you want to be sure you’re there to enjoy it. For any questions and/or to confirm your attendance, please see Terry Clark.

Lucky Stars for This Month
Recipient: Hope Helps and Kids of Hope
Sponsor: Sonia Bayne
The Kids of HOPE program alleviates hunger and provides food for disadvantaged children while on school breaks. The Federal Free/Reduced School Lunch Program provides economically challenged children with healthy lunches during the school year. Unfortunately, during school breaks, many of these families do not have the means to purchase additional food for their children while they are home from school. During each school break throughout the year (13 weeks), registered families pick up a week’s worth of free lunches for their children, and have access to a case manager. Toward the end of the summer program, these families are then invited to take part in the annual Kids of HOPE Back to School Bash, where they receive everything a child needs to start their first day of school just like any other kid!
Raffle Table For This Month
Recipient: Sunshine Foundation
Sponsors: Sonia Bayne & Mary King
Sunshine Foundation’s sole purpose is to answer the dreams of chronically ill, seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children ages three to eighteen, whose families cannot fulfill their requests due to financial strain that the child’s illness may cause.
