One Particular Harbour 2013

On April 14, 2013, the Dubuque Phlockers celebrated our 6-year anniversary and raised $13,5000 (our third "5-figure" amount!) for the benefit of the Centralia-Peosta and East Dubuque volunteer fire departments!

The Dubuque Phlockers, in conjunction with volunteers from our friends at the Centralia-Peosta and East Dubuque volunteer fire departments gathered together to produce another "party with a purpose" to the delight of nearly 500 parrotheads from Dubuque and the surrounding communities. Our day began with a pre-party at the Grand Harbor Resort and then migrated to the Grand River Center located on the banks of the Mississippi River!

As the doors to our party at the Grand River Center opened, our guests were by our tropical back-drop and the acoustical stylings of Dubuque's own Pirate Over 50. Friends meeting friends... "It's a magic kind of medicine, that no doctor could prescribe."

The party warm-up continued with our own Steve Cavanaugh who continued the music up until the start of the Cedar Island Band took the stage and delivered their sound and energy to the conclusion of the party. The dance-floor was filled and toes were tappin'...

"Mixin' different oceans meetin' cousins
Listen to the drummers and the night sounds
Listen to the singers make the world go 'round
"

Through the generous donations from our patrons and the local businesses and people listed below, our efforts culminated in two separate check presentations totalling $13,500 to two of our local volunteer fire departments!

Thanks and gratitude to all the other Phlockers who were unable to attend but helped us "party with a purpose!"
