WHO WE ARE
The Arizona Parrot Head Club (AZPHC) was founded in 1994 by Marlene Buffa. We are a not-for-profit social organization for people interested in Jimmy Buffett, Trop Rock music and a tropical spirit. Our purpose is to assist in community outreach programs and to provide members with a means of social interaction.
We are an official member of Parrot Heads in Paradise (PHiP). We support at least five charities each year through our events and volunteer hours. We serve the greater Phoenix area and have members throughout the state.
We truly live the message of “Party with a purpose!” There’s a lot of party and a lot of purpose! Our members phlock together for monthly happy hours where we have a 50/50 raffle to benefit designated charities. We have many other events throughout the year - house parties, house concerts, Margarita Mix-Off, for example - and volunteer for various organizations.
Our main party and fundraiser each year is our Parrot Grande event. It’s a weekend of fun, music, golf (for those who want to chase a little ball around with a stick), dancing, dining and raising money through our Silent Auction and Raffle. In 2018, we donated $7,000 to Arizona Camp Sunrise & Sidekicks!
The AZPHC Board of Directors (BOD) is always looking for ideas on happy hour locations, charities to support and other fun activities for club members. It’s your club, the BOD is just trying to steer the ship but your input is needed to find the destination. Feel free to pass on your ideas!
2018: AZPHC RAISED $21,657 AND VOLUNTEERED 1,139 HOURS!
Meet Phred Parrott
My name is Phred Parrott, and I am the official mascot of the Arizona Parrot Head Club. I suppose you could say I have the best life, I simply travel around the world with my Parrot Head phriends, get to visit some of the most beautiful places and listen to some amazing musicians. I also party with the AZPHC members all year long. All the while I never have to pay for a Landshark or a boat drink! I hope you'll enjoy reading about my adventures and that you'll look into joining AZPHC or your local parrot head club and come meet me soon at a tropical beach paradise bar near you soon.
