Longtime local radio personality Vikki Locke celebrated her birthday in style this week.
She had agreed to host a pajama Bingo party benefiting Pets Are Loving Support, held Wednesday at the Jungle Club.
What she didn’t know is that her friends actually had a surprise party for her in mind!
The B 98.5 FM Morning Show host was feted by industry pals including Tom Sullivan, Will Gara and Jessica Forkel, and a host of longtime friends announced a slew of fabulous gifts.
After Larry Hammack of Foxgloves & Ivy presented Vikki with an enormous bouquet of fresh flowers,caterer-to-the-stars Tony Conway presented a certificate for a catered dinner party for eight; John Stupka of Blue Med Spa presented the gift of relaxation and Chuck Kneeland of Steel and John Gibson of the Ansley Park Playhouse contributed an array of amusing knick-knacks.
Well, wouldn’t you know Vikki donated her gifts just moments after receiving them? They’ll be auction items at the May 1 PALS Pet Cotillion, which will be held at Piedmont Bark. (Minus the flowers, which will be a lovely dried bouquet by then).

This week’s party raised $3,600 for PALS, which provides care to the companion animals of elderly or critically ill Atlantans. “What a wonderful night!” said PALS executive director Kevin Bryant.
