Parrots of the Caribbean to flock to Toyota Field this year

MADISON – For 2020, Parrots of the Caribbean will flock to a new ‘nest’ on Sept. 12 at Toyota Stadium Concourse in Town Madison.

Rotary Club of Madison will host its eighteenth annual Parrots of the Caribbean, an evening community celebration of live music, food and libations from 6 to 11 p.m.

For the 2020 theme, “Charity Starts at Home.” “Madison Rotary is raising funds to benefit Madison Hospital and their critical needs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic,” 2020 Parrots chairperson John Possel said. “This year’s goal is to raise funds required to purchase a transport ventilator to move intubated patients.”

“Parrot-heads and music lovers are invited to don their grass skirts, Hawaiian shirts, island wear and masks to enjoy dancing, dining and drinks in a fabulous island theme,” publicity chairperson Catherine Beitel said. “This celebration event has grown from a small gathering of Madison Rotarians to a spectacular event attended by over 700 guests from all over the Southeast.”

“We’re proud to announce the return of musical entertainment from Calypso Vision, a good ol’ rock and roll band with an island theme. You’ll dream of good times and riches, as well as boats, bars and beaches. Fins up, Madison!” Beitel said.

Guests can buy food and beverages, including soft drinks, beer and wine, at Toyota Field concession stands. An online silent auction will include gift baskets.

Tickets costs $25 in advance and at the event. Guests must be at least 21 years old with a valid ID.

“Bring your folding chairs and masks. However, coolers, pets, strollers and outside food and drink are not permitted,” Beitel said. “This event will be held rain or shine.”

To buy tickets, contact a Madison Rotarian, email madisonrotary@gmail.com or visit Parrots.madisonalrotary.org or Facebook/Rotary Club of Madison, Alabama.

The award-winning Rotary Club of Madison supports local community service, vocational leadership and international projects. Previous recipients from Parrots proceeds have included Hogan Family YMCA, Madison Public Library and Madison Senior Center.
