Foundation President Phil Graham says, "Our waterfront parks are a great asset that need to be promoted and protected during the explosive development our city is enjoying."

In addition to a friendly round-robin shuffleboard tournament, there will be raffle drawings and a “Push for the Parks” skill competition for chances to win exceptional prizes including luxury hotel stays, magnums of champagne and family memberships to the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club to name a few. No shuffleboard experience is necessary, as lessons will be provided.
Vice-President Logan DeVicente says, "This is a fun way to help our beautiful parks while having some fun with your neighbors on a Sunday afternoon." Event Co-Chairman Don Howe adds, "Bring a friend to play shuffleboard and help promote the preservation of our parks."

Nearly 200 Waterfront Parks supporters turned out on April 7, 2019 for the 2019 Champagne Shuffle, held at the historic St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club. Adult guests were treated to a sample of champagne and all enjoyed drinks and appetizers offered by Orange Blossom Catering and Maggie’s on the Move food truck.
The event was co-chaired by WPF Board Members Don Howe and Charlie Osterholt. “We so appreciated the amazing turnout—thanks to all the supporters who joined us for a gorgeous afternoon,” Charlie remarked.
“The complimentary glass of champagne was a real hit with the crowd,” Don responded. “Everyone really seemed to enjoy themselves.”
Opportunity drawings and a “Push for the Parks” competition provided chances to win magnums of champagne and a family membership to the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club, and most of the crowd participated in main event: a round-robin shuffleboard tournament, which provided many guests with their first experience at the game. By day’s end, several guests had purchased memberships to the Shuffleboard Club, so it was a win-win all around. Many also took the opportunity to contribute to the $15,000 matching campaign to benefit the Waterfront Parks Foundation, which successfully ended on April 30.
Be sure to mark your calendars for the 2020 Champagne Shuffle on April 5, 2020. We look forward to seeing you there!
