JUNEAU - Organizers of the Boardwalk Boogie, a folk music event held annually in Pelican, are throwing a "Taste of the Boogie" fund-raiser with dinner, live music and a "twisted talent show" beginning at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, March 22, at the Elks Lodge.
"The whole idea is that it will be a taste of the Pelican Boardwalk Boogie," said organizer Jenni Lefing.
A halibut dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m., the talent show (participants may sign up at the door) begins at 8 p.m., the "Filthy Song Revue" featuring past winners of the same-name contest from the Boogie will follow and pick-up bands will end the evening with dancing music, Lefing said. There also will be a silent auction.
Tickets including dinner are $17 in advance and $20 at the door and are available at Paradise Cafe or from a Boardwalk Boogie member. Tickets for the music and entertainment without dinner are $8 in advance and $10 at the door.
The 2003 Pelican Boogie will be held May 8-11. Tickets for this year's Boogie will go on sale April 1 at Paradise Cafe. Ticket price includes round-trip transportation by boat from Juneau to Pelican. For more information call Lefing at 586-BOGY.
