NEW EVENT:  “2016 Redneck Rum Rummy”As Jeffy always said, “The only thing that makes Rum better is MORE RUM!” In honor of our recently past Master Chef, Jeff Drier, we are holding this first time charitable event sponsored by Northern Lights Family Outfitters & Five Star Screen Printing Plus @ 7:30 PM Friday. When Jeff started his battle with cancer, he and Joe Carter (Joe & Jeff Show) built a beautiful log hat tree that stands in the cancer treatment center of Spectrum Hospital in Petoskey.  The hat tree is filled with soft knit hats that are embroidered with a variety of colored cancer ribbons and the words “No One Fights Alone!” that is kept replenished by Northern Lights and Five Star for all to take for free.  In honor of Jeff’s legacy, we are asking for everyone to donate $10 to the hat tree and bring their best rum concoction (mixed drink) to share among all the participants.  EVERYONE WINS on this challenge, but he deemed with the best Redneck Rum Rummy will be awarded greatly! 




So, of course, we all know Redneck Day is definitely all about the food, but what about the fun!?!??! Every year, it’s always something new and yet, some things are just too good to change:


“2016 Annual 5K Redneck  Run, Walk, or Crawl”:  This event sponsored by Pellston Cross Country Teamthey came near and far once again to take on the challenging Redneck course.  It’s a lot of fun taking a hay ride at 7 AM to the starting line, but when you discover that you run straight up hill (Bliss Hill that is) from the starting line, many think twice about what they just paid $5 to enter! But…the best is the homemade breakfast by our cookers that you get to eat once you make it back as they compete in the Redneck Iron Chef Challenge (oh, and maybe a glass of water or two). It’s the least we can do!




“Best-of-the-Best Dessert Bake-Off”:  At Noon – 5 PM, as we said, the meat’s on! Volunteer’s will be working hard to cook up a homemade meal of salads and baked beans to go along with all the meat those cookers have to serve up ~ all for you to enjoy for FREE! The dessert however, will be provided by our “Best-of-the-Best Dessert Bake-Off” competitors.  Northern Lights Family Outfittersis awarding $100, $50, & $25 Cash Prizes to the top three entries.  Competitors serve up a variety of homemade desserts and ask for a minimum $.50 donation for their baked goods. Whoever raises the most money receives an additional $100, 2nd Place an additional $50, and 3rd an additional $25. All proceeds go to the organization! If your organization would like to participate, please contact us. It is a great way to raise money for your organization, as well as educate the public about who you are, and yet, help us serve up dessert for Redneck Day!


So, of course, we all know Redneck Day is definitely all about the food, but what about the fun!?!??!
