Thank You Pleasure Island

On behalf of the Pleasure Island Parrot Heads, we want to thank everyone who donated toys, wrote a check, or put their pocket change in our donation jars for our event “Christmas In July.”
We especially need to thank all the merchants that allowed us to place donation jars in their establishments for the past eight weeks. We also need to thank the Southern Coastal Woman’s Club and the Sun Coast Cruisers Car Club for their generous donations for our cause.
Lastly, we need to send a special thank you to Paul and Janis Boroznoff of Southern Digital Art for taking the time to visit the children at the hospital, and taking the kids pictures with Santa.
We were able to raise $1,400. This not only allowed us to purchase toys for the children, but also helped to stock the playroom with board games, toys, video games, crayons, and arts & craft supplies. We even replaced the old foosball table with a new one. The playroom is a big part of the children’s stay at the hospital.
We don’t want to see any child in the hospital, especially during the summer when they should be on vacation with their parents, outdoors playing with their friends, or visiting the beach. We hope, even if it was just for a brief moment, we brought a little joy into the lives of the children, parents, and siblings at the hospital.
Bill Davis, Rich Walsh
