Bud & Alley’s in Seaside will host the 9th annual Hurricane Party Sept. 27 from 7-10 p.m. with all proceeds benefiting Children’s Volunteer Health Network (CVHN).



South Walton’s longest-established and award-winning restaurant, Bud & Alley’s, will host this year’s annual Hurricane Party with entertainment provided by Destin’s DJ Joey. The event will also feature a live and silent auction. Select silent auction items will be posted online for a pre-auction two weeks prior to the party.



Anyone will be able to bid on the items, whether they plan to attend the party or not. Online bidding details will be posted on www.CVHNkids.org. To see some of the items for bid and to start bidding, click here.



“We are so pleased to be hosting the Hurricane Party benefiting CVHN again this year at Bud & Alley's,” said Dave & Carol Rauschkolb, owners of Bud & Alley’s. “We are drawn to this cause because the heart of this organization is about enriching children's lives.”



The 8th Annual Hurricane Party in 2012 was mentioned as the “place to be last Friday night” by The Walton Sun and raised more than $34,000, providing critical funding for the CVHN Dental Clinic, the “Just for Grins” Mobile Dental Clinic and the Healthcare Referral Program.



“Providing free, essential health and dental services to uninsured and underinsured children lessens suffering and builds stronger, more productive and happy children in our area. Together we can make a tremendous and meaningful difference for these children,” said the Rauschkolbs. “Please join us for this important event.”



Doors will open at 7 p.m. with heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Tickets are $60 in advance and $75 day of the party with proceeds going to help CVHN fulfill its mission. If your business is interested in getting involved, there are various sponsorship levels available and opportunities to donate auction items; all proceeds from the auction go straight to CVHN. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.CVHNkids.org or contact CVHN at 850-622-3200 or admin@CVHNkids.org.

About CVHN



Children's Volunteer Health Network, Inc. is a faith-based 501(c)(3) organization, established in 2005 in response to Walton and Okaloosa counties’ large population of low income families who are unable to access high quality health services due to the unavailability (or inadequacy) of insurance.

CVHN also operates the “Just for Grins” Mobile Dental Clinic that visits local elementary schools and opened the CVHN Dental Clinic in 2012.
