What is Grassroots Giving?

Grassroots Giving ( is a Florida not for profit organization benefiting underprivileged and foster children of Volusia & Flagler counties. Founded in 2006 by a local counselor working with foster families, the organization provides funding for those things many of us take for granted such as registration fees for sports, summer camps, tutoring, and music lessons.

"Sixteen Candles & More" will be held on Saturday My 15th in Ormond Beach to benefit Grassroots Giving. The is an 80's themed event featuring live music performed by Finding Ivy, food catered by Lulu's Oceanside Grill, the infamous TikiTender (hey that's me!) behind the bar, and the awe-inspiring talents of Meraux Dantes. I hope you will consider joining me in supporting this fundraiser. Tickets may be purchased in advance for $30 in advance or $35 at the door. Visit the Grassroots Giving website below and click on "Donations/Tickets". You can also RSVP and keep up with the latest news about this event on Facebook at

Now the big question is: Do I dress in Miami Vice, Breakfast Club, or Fast Times at Ridgemont High style for the party?

I am donating my talents to this event, please do me the favor of sharing it with your friends. Mahalo nui loa!
