PHun o’PHock Love & Luck March PHlocking!

With the help of ‘Baskets by Ray’ and the PHifty/50 Raffle, we collected $350 to donate to St. Baldrick’s Foundation for Cancer Cure for Children.  We thank Casie Shimansky & Sean Moody for introducing us to this amazing organization.  We are extra proud to have had representation at Capt Hiram’s last Saturday when Sean and Casie participated in the headshaving event for St. Baldrick’s Foundation. 

Thank you to Ray Wortley for another PHenomenal display of themed baskets.  Basket Raffle Sales brought in $225!!

Our PHifty/50 winner was Jean Bush.  She split $250 with the PHund for St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

RSVP winners for TWO gift cards from The Porch-WP were George Stickney & Laura Waters.

Keeping with that ‘we party with a purpose’ concept, the PHlock donated over $150 in supplies and $165 in cash for Ronald McDonald House.

We are so grateful to Don Middlebrook for an amazing perPHormance!  PHlockers were dancing and singing, and as shown in the video, taking over The Porch-Winter Park with our Conga Line.   My PHavorite part of our PHlockings is hearing our PHlockers rave about our Live Music, as well as the rest of the guests enjoying an evening at The Porch-Winter Park.  Even better is when the perPHormers share what a good time they had, and, especially, when, like Don asked, “WHEN CAN I COME BACK?”  Hopefully, we’ll see Don in the PHall!

The Welcome Table was hopping with PHlockers stopping by to PHlash their hangie-thingies and added our new PHlashie-Blinky Pins to their hangie-thingies.  Thank you to Co-Vice Presidents Louanne & Mike Sincavage for all of your help, as always.  We passed out quite a PHew club applications and inPHo PHlyers, too.  We added $35 to our club PHunds from sales of our new club logo pins and $215 to the club PHunds for the PHlashy Blinky pins.   We almost paid for our whole order of pins with these sales and will be seeing our Team PHunds growing quickly for our We Walk to End Alzheimer’s & Dementia Team.  We, also, added $40 to our club PHunds with t-shirt transfer sales.  

We, also, held our PHirst Parrot Points ceremony in many years!  24 Parrot Points were awarded to PHlockers that volunteered for our Adopt-a-Shore in January and  6 Parrot Points were awarded to our ‘Sowing’ SEA OATS in PHebruary. 


We had a lot of PHun, but, as always, we missed our PHlockers that weren’t present.  We know that Jeanette, Mike, Jackie, and Lisa Marie had a PHabulous time on the Atlanta Parrothead Cruise…we saw pictures!   We have, also, enjoyed the Travel Journal being shared by Tom & Janis Williams on their wonderPHul African adventures.  The rest of you…if you weren’t traveling, you missed a great PHlocking!

Our April PHlocking is being themed…’It’s all about PHCF!’   We’ll be celebrating our THIRTY-SECOND BIRTHDAY with the wonderPHul TropRock Artist, Jeff Randall! We are hoping ALL of our PHlockers will wear a PHCF club t-shirt for our PHlock PHoto.  We’ll be partying with a purpose benefitting Singing for Change and our club!  Our Lucky Stars and PHifty/50 will be benefitting our club.  We are asking our PHlockers to bring a nice bottle of wine and/or a quality bottle of liquor of any kind.  These items will be used in PHuture Basket Raffles.  More inPHo to PHollow!

And now, enjoy our memories from our March PHlocking!

Thank you to Paula King & Louanne Sincavage for welcoming our PHlockers and their guests, and to Mike Sincavage for being the ULTIMATE HOST and showing our VIRGINS how PHaithPHul PHlockers get active.

The Executive Board held a special INSTALLATION for our Communications OPHicer, Julie Artrip, as she wasn’t able to attend the January PHlocking.  Please visit our PHCF website  to see all the upgrades the Communications Committee have been doing.  

We had some WINNERS for the evening, too!   
Kevin Conlon won our PHifty/50, taking home $60 and the other half went into the club PHunds.

Craig Bush & guest Kurt Kotzin each won a $25 gift card for The Porch-Winter Park.

As always, we wish to thank the staff of The Porch-Winter Park for their hospitality!  Our ‘one particular harbor’ continues to be rockin’ on those Second Thursdays.

Looking forward to seeing the PHlock on March 14th as we welcome Don Middlebrook and we honor our PHlockers Sean Moody & Casie Shimansky for their ongoing dedication to our PHocus on Making a Difference: the St. Baldrick’s Foundation with our PHifty/50 and Baskets by Ray.  Our LUCKY STARS recipient is Ronald McDonald House at Advent Health in Orlando.
