Masks, mayhem and a surprise guest

Port Orchard Party is South Kitsap’s annual big fling, maybe the one time of year folks in these parts see fit to get all gussied up and par-tay.

The event, set for Nov. 19, is a fundraiser for its organizers, Fathoms ‘O Fun, which also puts on the town’s annual 4th of July fireworks, among other activities. Profits are shared with community groups, this year the South Kitsap High School Band.

This year, party organizers are promising a surprise guest, who will come and play with headliner band Soulstice. The nationally known artist, whose music has been embraced by new generations, asked that his visit to Port Orchard be kept on the QT, said Port Orchard Party publicist Julie Ancona-Shepard. So for now, you’ll just have to guess.

The party will be from 7 to 11 p.m. Nov. 19 at Sk8 Town off Bethel Avenue. Here are more details on the party from Julie.

Press release begins here:
Fathom’s O Fun is gearing up for the 22nd annual Port Orchard Party. Fathom’s O Fun is a non-profit organization serving Kitsap County. This fundraising Gala helps raise money’s for all the free events they put on throughout the year.
The party will be held at a new location this year at Sk8town off of Bethal Ave. in Port Orchard. This year’s event is a Mardi Gras theme, and to add a little mystery we ask our guests to come in their favorite mask. The party will feature so many exciting things:

Soulstice- The Band
Emcee- DJ Scott Fijolek
Two Tarot Card Readers
12 local Restaurants offering food
Tommy C’s- No Host Bar
Photography – Summerill Photography

Attire is Cocktail/ Black Tie- Wear your best mask as well!
The Port Orchard Ambassadors as well as Miss Kitsap will be appearing that evening. Our de facto King of the Mardi Gras will be Phil Paquette.
We will have raffles going on throughout the evening as well as a mask contest for a prize to the best mask which we will reveal and announce at the end of the night.
This year we are helping to support the South Kitsap High School Marching band for their trip to Pearl Harbor is December to play at the 70th Anniversary memorial. The night of the Party, the Marching band will play a special performance with Soulstice of Fleetwood Mac’s “Tusk” and “Don’t Stop”. Fleetwood Mac performed this set with the USC Marching band for their Reunion Tour, and as far as we know it’s not been duplicated since.
We have a special Celebrity guest to appear and play a few sets with the band as well as available to sign autographs. He is confirmed but we cannot release his name at this time.
