This year was another good year for Pineapples. We had close to 500 participants in the park. The Mile Post 6 Band was back and rocked the LUAU. Our volunteer staff (Pineapple Patrol) kept the event on task ( Really! We finished on time this year.) Athlinks (thank you for your donation) made the registration process a breeze! Our sponsors were amazing and at the end of the day we raised over $31,000. We had Fun, We got Dirty and We raised money to Beat Cancer. Our ‘Gold Pineapple’ award went to ‘Team Jen’s Brigade’. Their team donation total was just over $2,500. The individual first place winner was Cody Hendrych-Bondra. Team ‘Mad Dawgs’ took home first place in the team competition. And finishing up in the rear for the Crushed Pineapple award was ‘Ananas Express’. But my favorite award of the LUAU was Best Costume. With the help of our Royal Family, Madelina, George, Lorna and Nicholas the Ninja Pineapples walked away with the top prize.
And as everyone knows nothing goes anywhere without the effort of a tireless Committee. From planning, setup, registration and clean up our Committee got it done. Many, many thanks to all…but our work is not done fighting cancer. 2019 is around the corner … Runners are Wanted!
