Making Waves

Much Thanks and Date for Presentation of Funds

The “Teal Tidal Wave” took over Perdido Key, Orange Beach, and Gulf Shores

for Wonderful Wacky Women Week.   We had 16 states represented in

the week’s activities.   Suzy Toronto, Title Sponsor enjoyed all of the events.

As a matter of fact, she has been here every year since we started in 2009.   She is

such a blessing to know.   She who is our Mentor and Friend.


One of our most honoring gatherings was teaming with April Adams at Eden Condominiums and hosting a Welcome Party and Luau

for the Wounded Warrior Heroes who were visiting the same timeframe as Wonderful Wacky Women Week.


We would like to thank our Generous Sponsors, our  Willing Participants, our Creative Teams, and our Over-the-Top Volunteers for your donations and help!

Because of you, we continue to make a huge difference in the fight against cancer, specifically Ovarian Cancer.    This year’s race was in

Honor of the Memory of Terry Lucinda Ivey, who lost her battle in Feb. 2014.   “With every crash of the waves and every beat of our hearts, We Feel

Your Tingle.”  Suzy Toronto


Grateful Spotlight to our Silent Auction Committee Chair, PatsyAnne Stout and her team captains, Vikki Burand and Angie Schumacher

who aced not one but two awesome silent auctions.    Because of over 350 items donated by our thoughtful giving donors our Silent Auction

brought in over $15,000.    Grateful Spotlight to Darlene Webster and Mighty Man, Mark Webster for all the awesome decorations

at each of our Gatherings.   Grateful Spotlight to the Firefighters’ Fire and Iron Motorcycle Club – Station 48 Pensacola, one of our Presenting Sponsors and

Escorts for a Memorial and Remembrance Ride to Perdido Pass Bridge in Loving Memory of our Fallen and In Honor of our Wounded Warrior Heroes

and Glenn Walters, My Love who received an award as the “Mightiest Man.”


Our Board of Directors deserves to be in a Hall of Fame.  They have worked endless hours to ensure everything was together nicely for

our visitors, our locals and our survivors.   Thank you from the bottom of my heart, my board, my friends.  I love you dearly.
