The annual party benefitting ORPHANetwork has raised almost $2 million dollars

John and Stacey Pitzaferro took their 9th annual Party with a Purpose back to the 80's

On October 4th, John and Stacey Pitzaferro with the support of TransNational Payment Solutions, took their event back to the ‘80’s to give vulnerable and orphaned children in Nicaragua a new future.

This year’s themed party was a first for the annual event which is always focused on a fun experience for all. Guests exchanged plenty of laughs as friends greeted each other, admired their flashback fashions and placed their complementary neon fanny packs around their waists.

Year after year, the party delivers a fantastic atmosphere for attendees, including dancing and singing along with 7th Heaven, a favorite locals’ band, placing bids on an array of impeccable silent auction items and buying raffle tickets for a chance to win a vacation package or the latest tech gadgets. A mechanical bull, ping-pong and old-school video games ensure guests have plenty of options to have a great time while the donations keep rolling in for the cause.

Party with a Purpose has been the driving force behind ORPHANetwork’s strategic mission to break the cycles of poverty for 1,200 children living in a former refugee camp community in Managua. The party has resulted in a transformed community where children now have access to food, health, education and job skills training. The community transformation has been so strong that the party’s proceeds now impact all 20,000 children served by ORPHANetwork in Nicaragua.
