So continuing the story of our exciting events last weekend…Right after I left the Red Culture Conference at HyVee Hall, I drove the Pulse 101.7 CityStop car over to West Des Moines Open Bible Church for Bryn Metcalf’s Sweet 16 Birthday party!!! Seriously, this party was off the hook! Bryn’s mom, Becky helped put it together and there were a TON of Pulse 101.7 fans there! Bryn and all of her friends came out to have their picture taken in front of the car just like a red carpet event!
Also there was weekend radio warrior, Charle Price, rocking the house inside with some awesome DJ skills. The inside of the church was all lit up with DJ lights and Pulse music was blasting! Everyone was dancing and this party was so intense I even got whacked in the face with a Pulse 101.7 frisbee! Luckily, they are pretty soft. Becky had set up a pretty sweet treat buffet downstairs and I had a peanut butter chocolate bar that was out of this world.
I left behind Charle Price at the end of the night to let her finish up her DJ session to return back to the studio. After all, I had a whole other event to get ready for the next day! I hadn’t ever thought of Pulse 101.7 as a Birthday DJ opportunity before, but what a GREAT idea! I wish I had had a Sweet 16 as cool as Bryns! What was really awesome was that there were so many teens who listen to Pulse at her party. Becky had this to say about Pulse 101.7 joining in collaboration of Bryn’s Birthday:
“We just want to thank you both [Charle Price and Katie], along with Pulse 101.7, for making Bryn’s “Sweet 16” party extra special! Having Pulse music and a visit from the City Stops Scion definitely added the “cool” factor to our party. The music mix was electric and kept the party alive! The teens loved interacting with D.J. [Charle Price] and having Katie take their pics with the Scion. Bryn was a child of the Q, and a teen of Pulse…what a perfect way to honor her. We were BLESSED!….Jim, Becky, and Bryn Metcalf” Well, thank YOU Jim, Becky, and Bryn for having us out for an awesome party! This is just another reason why Pulse matters in the community. Thank you again to all of our current Pulse 101.7 supporters and if you haven’t given to Pulse before, I just want to encourage you to become a part of our mission by donating to your station online or by calling 515-987-9995!
