Felix and Fingers are proud to say the White Pines LaBranche fundraiser was a success.  This fun, small town event recently celebrated it’s 52nd year!  In fact, the Polo Town and Country Jaycees worked with Felix and Fingers bringing in a significant amount of funds for the town’s firework show.  This is a four day festival that starts out with one of the most amazing firework displays in the area.

White Pines LaBranche Fundraiser Illinois

White Pines LaBranche FundraiserIf you are searching for a brand new facility that is situated within a rolling countryside check out White Pines LaBranche.  Felix and Fingers drove out to the White Pines Forest State Park located in Polo, Illinois to perform at an amazing fundraiser.  White Pines Inn built a stunning 6,000 sq. ft. cedar forest building named LaBranche about 7 miles from it’s original venue.  With an ever increasing rental demand two new banquet and reception rooms are now available for up to 375 guests.  This was our second show for the Town and Country Days fundraiser and we were EXCITED to return!  For more information and to schedule a private tour of the White Pines LaBranche facility please click here.

Our performers for the White Pines LaBranche fundraiser were Mike Potts and Mike Sherman.  As we set up our interactive dueling piano show, a fun loving group of Jaycees was there to help.  Everyone came together loading our equipment in as well as expertly setting our sound system up.  We loved the fact that our banquet room had a huge dance floor. To begin with, our performers requested $300 for Burning Down the House by Talking Heads. We wanted to make sure the town had it’s firework show.  The fact that our tip jar filled quickly, we immediately played Burning Down the House while everyone enjoyed catered appetizers.  Our players had the dance floor packed within minutes of their show.  Oh and by the way, Mike Sherman had just received a haircut that the kid volunteers made fun of.  Braiding his faux hawk was too much fun!

Famous Cake Auction

White Pines LaBranche FundraiserThe White Pines LaBranche fundraiser had a very enthusiastic group of party goers who were eager to get involved and donate money.  During dinner, Felix and Fingers made sure songs such as Cult of Personality by In Living Colour had the audience emptying their wallets!  That is to say, our performers played an awesome rendition of this song and had the crowd singing at the top of their lungs.  We provided light background music while dining on mouthwatering prime rib served with a perfectly grilled veggies.  Moreover, the Town and Country Jaycees provided their famous cakes for auction. More importantly, individual Fireball cheesecakes brought in $100 each!  There were 8 cheesecakes!  If you would like more information on the White Pines restaurant please click here.

Felix and Fingers were having the time of their life at the White Pines LaBranche fundraiser.  Felix and Fingers were happy contributing towards a great cause while making sure everyone had a blast.  Our performers packed the dance floor with songs such as DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love by Usher.  By popular demand, we performed Party in the U.S.A. by Miley Cyrus twice!  We eventually closed out our show with Cotton Eyed Joe by Rednex for $100.
