Green Bay’s Never Seen a Garden Party Like This One

Green Bay’s Never Seen a Garden Party Like This One

John and Rhonda Adkins have a family cottage in King’s Point and they are pretty social people, to make an understatement.

They are also very community-minded and so they decided to turn their Saturday, August 26th garden party into a fundraiser for the King’s Point Volunteer Fire Department.

What presumably would have been a small friendly gathering around a fire pit has been turned into a larger friendlier happier gathering complete with Cookie the Clown, a bouncy castle, games and prizes, raffles and live music by Chris Mitchell.

This community event post is brought to you by:

John and Rhonda say everyone is welcome to this private garden party.

The goal of the garden party to beat all garden parties is to raise $5000 for the folks who raise ladders: the local fire department.

Much of that goal will be met through the generosity of John and Rhonda. As well as paying for the food and the live music, John will match money taken at the gate up to $2000.

Admission is $10 for anyone aged 16+. Kids get in free, and John says there will be many games for them to enjoy.

BBQ: hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot-dogs, sausages, fisherman’s brewis, salads, desserts, soft drinks, water, and freezies for the kids

Chris Mitchell will be playing at their gazebo, and there’ll be dancing by the bay on the water’s edge (BYOB). The fire pit will be lit.

There will be several raffles/auctions during the day with prizes that include gift certificates from local merchants, hand made chairs, a pew from a local church and more. The winners will be announced at 11:00 pm.

Cookie the Clown is even bringing a dunk tank.

This is a rain or shine cash-only event.

A line in one of John’s Facebook posts says it all: “Please mark this down on your calendar, and come out for a great day/night that your whole family can enjoy.”
