PBA Update


By Sandi Parrish
Executive Director

It’s not too late to buy tickets to our annual scholarship fundraiser on March 2 at Kurtz’s Beach from 7:00pm to 11:00pm. The Guys in Thin Ties band will be back to rock the night. We will award a prize for the best ‘80s costume.

Tickets are $40 each until February 24, so hurry and purchase your tickets online or stop by Arundel Federal Savings Bank in Lakeshore Plaza or BB&T on Mountain Road. We hope to break last year’s record and raise $16,000 for scholarships for seniors at Northeast and Chesapeake high schools.

Please bring your friends and family to enjoy a great time. Be a sponsor for the event. You can be a sponsor even if you cannot attend. See our website for details about sponsor levels. Donate an item for our silent auction, which raised more than $2,400. Tickets and sponsorships are now available online at www.pbafundraiser.com.

The PBA Scavenger Hunt is underway and game cards are due by February 28, so get yours and play for some great prizes. What a great way to get to know the many local businesses, service providers and nonprofit organizations! Look forward to valuable prizes, such as the grand prize: a fire pit, courtesy of Costello’s Ace Hardware & Hearth in Lakeshore Plaza, filled with a bounty of gift cards and products. Other prizes include a treasure chest from Mutiny Pirate Bar & Island Grille, Ravens portable grill donated by M&T Bank, and gift cards from local restaurants and businesses. Every completed scavenger hunt form will have a chance to be entered into the drawing. The more correct answers, the better your chances.

Pick up your game piece/form at one of the following pickup/dropoff sites: Ace Hardware & Hearth (4167 Mountain Road), Arundel Federal Savings Bank (4179 Mountain Road), Bay Vanguard (8070 Ritchie Highway), BB&T Bank (3030 Mountain Road), Calvert Veterinary Center (4100 Mountain Road), Century 21 Don Gurney Real Estate (3201 Mountain Road), Lauer’s Supermarket & Bakery (8095-A Edwin Raynor Boulevard), M&T Bank (8493 Fort Smallwood Road), Riviera Beach Community Library (1130 Duvall Highway), The UPS Store Riviera Beach (8482 Fort Smallwood Road). Visit www.pasadenabusinessassociation.com and download the card.

Ways to find the answers

  • • Look for “clues” when shopping local
  • • Visit local businesses and organizations
  • • Visit businesses via their websites and social media pages
