Several local organizations have come together for a Hurricane Michael fundraiser at The Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island on Saturday, November 10th from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Cheers for Charity
will feature over 120 premium wines, craft beers, and various spirit tastings all along The Boardwalk. 100% of the event proceeds will benefit Panhandle Prayers
and Pawsitive Love Foundation
, two reputable organizations whose efforts are aiding Hurricane Michael victims with a longstanding impact.
Cheers for Charity will also feature several live music acts throughout the Boardwalk, college football on the Al’s Beach Club projection screen, free photo booth, and other vendors concerning Hurricane Michael relief. Fundraising efforts will also include raffles and silent auctions with thousands of dollars in items. The Boardwalk restaurants will donate 10% of all-day sales in addition to dinner and happy hour specials. The event will conclude with a Veteran’s Day Weekend firework show at 6pm off the Okaloosa Island pier.
“All of us on the Emerald Coast want to help our neighbors to the east, and so far, we’ve done an amazing job coming together with immediate temporary action.” says Steve Kotowske, founder of Pawsitive Love Foundation. “With every dollar from this event, we’re able to think more long-term action and focus on strategic areas of need for growth in the Panama City area.”
Tickets are $35 pre-sale and $45 day-of for general admission. A $5 military discount is available. Limited VIP Tickets are on sale for $75 and include early entry with cocktails, premium wine pours, hors d'oeuvres, and VIP parking. Tickets can be found at www.theboardwalkoi.com/cheers
