On Saturday, June 12, 2021, the Mande Milkshakers will host the “Shakes and Shoes Sock Hop”, sponsored by Abita Beer, Louisiana Seafood, Rolling Cones, and ABC Lighting, from 6-9pm, at the Mandeville Trailhead, in support of the “Put Your Best Foot Forward” Shoe Drive campaign happening this summer. The Sock Hop will feature an evening of 50s themed fun and dancing with local rockabillys, Dem Guyz, and dancing with the Mande Milkshakers, all in the name of supporting local families in need. Admission to this amazing event will only cost you a pair of new shoes for the Put Your Best Foot Forward Shoe Drive!
Party goers will enjoy entertainment by the local band, Dem Guyz, and their collection of crowd favorites to get your socks hopping! Paired with the band, the Mande Milkshakers have planned an evening of games and performances between dance party sessions. It is sure to be a great evening of family fun for all ages.
The Mandes will be selling raffle tickets, all night, for chances to win a host of family and kid oriented prizes. Also, door prizes will be announced periodically throughout the night with a Grand Prize drawing held at the end of the evening!
In addition to the dancing and prizes, food and drink wristbands will be available to donors of the Mande Milkshakers, featuring Louisiana Seafood and Abita Beer!
The Put Your Best Foot Forward Shoe Drive, by the Mande Milkshakers, is a summer long effort in coordination with the Lacombe Recreation Department which will culminate with a Back to School Shoe Giveaway for children in need. The Shakes and Shoes Sock Hop will aid in the collection of shoes for the Giveaway and help raise awareness for the shoe drive itself.
