Parrot Head has an interest in Jimmy Buffett and the tropical life-style

their community be a better place.
You have probably seen Parrot Heads in tropical shirts helping out with
Special Olympics, or on a “wooden ship” in the local Christmas parade.
You may also have seen a group of Parrot Heads at a local restaurant or

for one of the many charities we support.

donated tens of thousands of dollars and hundreds of man-hours to these
organizations and many more:

• DoDads and DoMoms,
