Good morning!
We just wrapped up filming this week’s “Everything!” Show with host Whitney Lee, and here’s what we covered…
☀️BoJamz Music and Arts Festival
The 6th Annual BoJamz Music and Arts Festival benefitting The Wright Fight for Cystic Fibrosis is happening Sunday, March 31st at Boshamps Oyster House. BoJamz is a one-day music festival on the Destin Harbor featuring a silent auction and huge crawfish boil aimed at bringing the community together to raise money for a great cause.
This year, proceeds from BoJamz will go to benefit The Wright Fight for Cystic Fibrosis. William Wright, a lifelong Destin resident, and his wife Magen have twin sons, Merritt and Campbell, who were born with Cystic Fibrosis (CF).
CF is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. There is some real potential for a cure so Boshamps is asking the community to come together to help.
In 2017, over 1500 people attended BoJamz and even more are anticipated to come this year. Funds will be raised by collecting a $10 suggested donation at the door as well as a large silent auction featuring items donated by the community.
👜Shelter House’s Annual Purses with a Purpose event
Shelter House’s Annual Purses with a Purpose event is a HUGE silent auction and sale for new and gently used handbags and accessories. The kick off event is this Thursday at Grand Boulevard in the storefront next door to Pottery Barn.
Doors for General Admission will open at 5:30pm and it’s a free for all. They’ll have new bags from all the local boutiques on silent auction and the walls are filled with gently used handbags for a steal.  
🍺Alright Beer Lovers
Navarre’s Ye Old Brothers Brewery is hosting their first Craft Beer Fest and it’s going down this Saturday, March 30th from noon to 4pm at their brewery at Highway 87.
So it looks like it’s going to be BIG - They’ve got over 20 breweries lined up along with live music by Group Therapy! It’s $20 to get in and that includes a souvenir glass. Tickets are on sale now on yeoldbrothersbrewery.com or you can go into the brewery to snag one - just make sure you bring cash!
🐊The Great Gator Roast
The Boathouse Landing in Val-P is hosting The Great Gator Roast where they will actually roast a 7 foot gator, seasoned and smoked, for over 24-hours!
The gator meat will be served in the restaurant’s Louisiana-style jambalaya, or the southern way…on a stick. There will also be fried gator bites and gator Cajun pasta.
For those who don’t want any gator don’t worry, there will also be a spicy shrimp boil! Oh and March Madness Elite 8 will also be featured on the Bilge Bar big screens.
