Friday Afternoon Club: Par-tay in Port Orchard Saturday

Port Orchard will be strutting its stuff for the 21st annual Port Orchard Party, from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday at Towne Square Mall, 1700 Mile Hill Drive in Port Orchard.
Twenty Kitsap Restaurants will show their style. There will be live music on two levels, entertainment, a silent auction, dancing and no-host bars. “Put on your party clothes and come!” implore organizers.
This year’s theme is “All Aboard – Don’t Miss the Boat!” (I’m sure that will be a hit with the Port Orchard couple who were on the stranded cruise ship.)
The event, hosted by Fathoms O’ Fun, is a fundraiser for that organization and other local causes. In 2009, POP raised $9,800, which was split between Fathoms, responsible for Port Orchard’s summer festival by the same name, and Boys and Girls Clubs of South Kitsap. In addition, South Kitsap Helpline received $1,000 in donations plus food.
This year’s recipients are South Kitsap Fathoms O’ Fun Festival, Soroptimist International of Port Orchard Foundation and South Kitsap Helpline Food Bank.
Buy tickets for $30 each ($35 at the door) through PayPal on the Fathoms website, or buy them from Columbia Bank, Alfred Interwest Insurance, MoonDogs, Too, Peninsula Credit Union, Walk N’ Comfort Shoes, Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce, Sidney Gallery, Kitsap Bank main branch and Bethel Avenue branch, and the Lighthouse Restaurant.
