On April 12, the Island Drive home of Catherine and Collins Coon became a tropical get-away for St. Frederick’s supporters, who gathered poolside to raise funds for the high school and set the tone for Spring. The PTO Chairs for the event were Catherine Coon, Brenda Hilburn, Misty Cordell and Kathryn Wilson (lovely in a tropical print dress flown in from the Big Island for the party), who called in all their troops to make the event a rousing success. Guests were treated to a visual and culinary treat provided by Janet and Lewellyn Simon, who roasted and carved a beautifully-prepared  Polynesian-style whole pig, while Thurman’s Food Factory provided a feast fit for a Hawaiian king. Sliders from Central Station’s mobile Slider Central food truck, which was parked at the entrance to the party, kept the “Aloha” vibe strong. Alan Brockman was in hilarious form, encouraging live auction bidders throughout the night. Party-goers festooned with colorful leis danced beneath the moon to the sounds of Flashback 5.
