Ticket to paradise: $15

   For only $15 you can get a ticket to paradise! 
   Paradise being the Bay City USO Service Center and attending the first ever “Summer Luau Bash” sponsored by the Parks and Recreation department. 
   The Bash will bring a bit of the tropics to Bay City Saturday, Aug. 15 at the USO Service Center, 2105 Ave. M. 
   DJ Tommy Blaze kicks off the event at 7 p.m. and will spin tunes until it is all over at midnight. 
   “It is an end of summer, let’s celebrate dance and have fun!” said Parks and Rec Department director Kelly Penewitt. 
   “It’s an opportunity to get out, connect with old friends and meet some new friends.” 
   I wanted a theme that takes the attendees to a more exotic place, if only for one night, she added. 
   “Everyone is a guest of honor and will get a lei when they arrive,” said Penewitt. 
   Each ticket costs $15 per person or $100 per table. 
   “We can accommodate up to 200 people,” she said. 
   “It’s not a fundraiser, we want to recover our cost of the event, but more importantly provide activities for Bay City residents and beyond.” 
   Refreshments and set ups will be sold by Real Deal Grill and the event is BYOB. 
   There will also be a photo booth for attendees. 
   “We want people to come out and have a great time dancing the night away with us,” said Penewitt. 
   “We will have a contest for the best Hawaiian shirt, limbo and hula hoop contest, photo op and maybe a few surprises.” 
   Our goal is to have fun, she said.
