Day at the Southwick's Zoo
was a wonderful day with surprises!

Great time for everyone!

We could not of had a better day for our annual

COKO benefit. Southwick's Zoo more than a Zoo took such great care of us big time. The Northeast Groove rocked the tent as always and the food was excellent. We went live to our orphanage, and everyone got to meet all the children which was a real big hit!

Perfect weather highlighted our event.  The day started off with an exciting surprise when 3 sky divers dropped in for a special visit.

A group of Jay's skydiving friends came all the way from Arizona and jumped in wearing COKO shirts and presented Us with money they had all collected for COKO. Jay was the only one that did not know. 

Our day was filled with laughs, music and great food.

The Northeast Groove rocked the tent with a variety of music.  Dancing got started after our video session with the kids, which the audience fell in love with.  BBQ food from Galliford's filled everyone's appetite.  The pinacol of the afternoon came when Jay was auctioned off to play the drums for one of his favorite Led Zepplin songs.

He performed like a pro.  We were all amazed.  

"Big shoutout to everyone who came to help support the children and to all my skydiving family that was there, love you all so very much for doing this for me and COKO.""  Jay Rowe.

Special thanks go out to the businesses and individuals that donated items and gift certificates to help support this event.

Big Thank you to,

Southwick's Zoo, more than a Zoo
