This year’s 80’s Flashback Weekend: Always The First Weekend Of August was different. Thanks to 2020’s most unwelcomed guest (COVID19) so we had to do a few changes to the fun. We debated about canceling, we debated about what we can do but in the end, we knew we had to do it for the children. We agreed to host the “Totally Awesome 80’s Virtual Party” on Saturday August 1, 2020, through Facebook. The virtual fundraiser raised over $7,000 for the Greenville Shriners Hospital for Children.
We know it is not the greatest amount or our set goal for 2020 but the amount we raised will be enough to help a child or children become HANDICAPABLE.
2021 will be here soon and we will begin to look to the good times of celebrating the great things in our lives and we may not celebrate them like we once did but we will enjoy them again.
One of those good times will be the 80’s Flashback Weekend August 6 and 7 in the Franklin NC area or the first-ever Miss 1980 Something 2021 Pageant (18+yrs old) on July 31.
We will make it through this challenging time and we will be doing all the fun things soon but for now we must pray, think positive, social distance ourselves, wear a mask, wash our hands (24/7), give lots of “air hugs and air fives,” be a friend to your neighbors in need and most of all we gotta be America-The greatest nation that protects and helps no matter who you are.
Stay Safe! We Got This.
