Redneck Palooza Party, Sport Island Pub - October 12, 2017
The turnout for this event was phenomenal! It was standing room only with most of the party-goers donning their best "Redneck" garb. A big thanks goes out to the Lanzi's for donating the venue and terrific food. We dined on a buffet of saucy BBQ chicken, roadkill stuffed pork loin, a fantastic pasta dish, redneck baked beans, and many other delicious sides. And it was all topped off with a Napoleon for dessert! The DJ spun some great country tunes while our guests entered their silent auction bids. Once again, our local merchants and supporter came through with wonderful items that made both the silent and live auctions a huge success. Trophies were awarded to the Redneck Queen and King. After all was said and done, the SPC raised more than $10,000!
