The 12th Annual Hurricane Party at Bud and Alley’s takes place Friday night September 23. If you don’t already have tickets, you can purchase at the door for $125. Proceeds benefit the Children’s Volunteer Health Network (CVHN). The doors swing wide open starting at 6:30pm and feature heavy creole hors d’oeuvres and also a cash bar. 4 Barrel Funk from Mobile, Alabama will provide the live music with a Motown show. Be sure to bring your giving spirit as both a silent and live auction take place where guests can bid on luxury trips and private chef dinners all in the name of charity. We hope to see you there for what is always a splendid party for a wonderful cause.
