Last week I started counting down the top 6 moments of this show since the station launched. Of course this is all to campaign to win Best Of Bay's Best Radio Personality award which you can vote for HERE!
For now though let's get to our number 5 moment from the show. A moment that's very special to me
5. Downtown PC Trick Or Treating
This will go down as one of the most special events for me since I've been here. We weren't even a month removed from the storm and here we are with the Bay Arts Alliance trying to put together an event for all the kids who didn't have neighborhoods to trick or treat to anymore. It was a monumental task not only from the Arts Center, but from the city because they had to clean up downtown to make it safe to even walk through.
Yet we were all determined to do this for the kids. They already went through enough at that point and were about to go through a hell of a lot more. So the Center For The Arts collected donated costumes and the good people downtown did their best to clean up the streets. We did our best here to promote the event and keep everyone in good spirits. Before you knew it, the costume racks were FILLED and parents were able to get their child a costume for Halloween
More and more people from the community signed up to give out candy. This thing was gaining steam. Then, Halloween night came and it was TOO SUCCESSFUL
Literally THOUSANDS of people came to Trick Or Treat in Downtown Panama City. It was one of the most fulfilling moments of my career to be a part of something so special. 21 days removed from a catastrophic hurricane and here we all pull together to put together this huge event for the kids.
Every year I go Trick Or Treating with my kids in our little neighborhood. But my family understood that I needed to be there that night. My then 6 year-old daughter knew that daddy needed to help give kids a Halloween and she was more than willing to loan me out for the night.
So if you'd like to cast your vote for me for Best Of Bay's Best Radio Personality. Please do so HERE. You can vote every day! Thank you!!
