Thank you to everyone who attended or otherwise contributed to a wonderful event on Thursday July 1st !
After a soggy day, the rain cleared and the sun made a brief appearance to grace our concert by the water. Hot Tamale provided the entertainment with great music as community members rallied at Posey's Dockside Cafe in Panacea to raise awareness, funds, and support at "Gulf Aid" for organizations responding to the oil spill disaster. Posey's awesome crew handled the crowd with ease! The food was delicious, I recommend the grouper sandwich.
Special recognition and many thanks go to the Posey family, Craig Reeder and Adrien Fogelin of Hot Tamale, Tana McLane of Humidity Gallery, artist Tiffany Bordwell, Bobbie Tyer of Sweet Creations cakes, Phil and Jackie Werndli and the Tallahassee Parrothead Club, the Rudloe family and the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab, Jenny Brock and the Florida Wildlife Federation, the Beatty Family and the Florida Wildlife Mammal Association, Kim Ross and Crude Awakenings Tallahassee. These individuals and groups hosted, participated, donated time and talent - all for love of our Gulf waters!
An additional thank you goes out to the following volunteers who also contributed time and services to help make the event a service: Lanier Alcorn of Cuzzy's Key West Sauces, the Light family of Precision Builders, Anne Ahrendt, David Pienta, and Commissioner Alan Brock.
And -- yes, Jimmy Buffett HAS rescheduled his live show for Sunday, July 11th. Posey's Dockside WILL be setting up a big screen outside and will also have multiple tvs to show the concert. It will be a fun evening of good music and great food on the coast!
