8th Annual Hurricane Party Sep. 21 at Bud & Alley's

Back in 2005 the small crew at Children's Volunteer Health Network was hard at work starting up their organization and then Hurricane Katrina hit, forcing evacuation in many areas. Many locals had evacuated and returned, and many folks from the New Orleans area fled here. The already-scheduled, first fundraiser for CVHN became known as the Hurricane Party.

The Hurricane Party has grown in to a great tradition. The 8th annual edition is on September 21 in the heart of South Walton at Bud & Alleys in Seaside, with great food and fun entertainment.
