Audience members howled to a dancing exhibition of The Village People’s “In the Navy” and “YMCA” and cheered for fast footwork during spicy Latin beats. The event featured lighthearted theatrical performances by a pirate and the wenches fighting for his affections, and was punctuated by décor and atmosphere that included aquarium centerpieces, a pirate juggling sticks of fire and a friendly mermaid greeting guests at the door.

Silent auction items included various vacation packages, jewelry and artwork, along with items like an autographed Lady Antebellum CD and an autographed Tim Allen photograph.

The Northwest Florida State College Soundsations performed a Broadway medley and later a crowd-pleasing rendition of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

The event’s financial success guarantees it will return next year, organizers said.

“We appreciate the support from the Crestview community, and the volunteers. Without them, it couldn’t happen. It just couldn’t happen.”
