    A Weekend Benefiting your Community:
    Catwalk, Auction, Calendar


    On November 20th, 2011
    make your plans to have some fun. The Embassy Suites in Miramar Beach will provide the venue for an event you are not likely to forget. "Catwalk 211" with festivities, papparazzi, and excitement will fill the atrium as we anticipate which 12 men will represent each month on the Men Who Service Walton calendar, and the Peoples Choice winner Mr. 2011. As they are presented to a grateful, cheering room of Waltonians, the music will pump as these men strut their stuff on the catwalk.

    Produced by John Rosenberg, with a script written by Teance Blackburn and Catwalk direction by Sara Paul and fashion contributed by wonderful clothiers and sponsors from all over the county.


    This event will open the holiday season with a bang. The auction items are spectacular and each trip offered is better than the next.

    After the show and auction, the calendar men will be available to sign the calendar at the "Afterglow" party.

    But wait, there's more. On Sunday the 21st we are planning a "trunk party"just in case there are some auction items leftover that need a place under your Christmas Tree. Great place to do a little shopping in support of a great cause.

    As one of the runway guys (or Men Who Service Walton County), I cannot wait to fall of the end of the runway at the Embassy Suites.! :clap: To get in shape I have been practicing on the stripper pole too. This party is gonna rock the streets of Destin--it will make Halloween at Alys Beach seem like Bingo night at assited living.

    :lol: now that is funny! I knew it was going to be a blast but now I know it is definitely a MUST do event! Are you going to fall off the runway on purpose? Not good for the hip ya know - speaking of assisted living.

    One week from tomorrow night!

    This event is VERY important to make access to human services and help available to all of Walton County! The 2-1-1 info network will not happen unless the community makes it happen. This service will touch more lives in Walton County than any one single service can- it will connect the people to all available resources.

    If you are unable to attend the event, please consider a donation and/or buy a calendar. Our community is long overdue for a 2-1-1 system!

    From the website: Men Who Service Walton Fun Raising

    [FONT=arial,sans-serif]Every hour of every day, hundreds of people need essential human services. You and your neighbor may need training, employment, food pantries, help for an aging parent, addiction prevention programs for your teenage children, affordable housing options, rent or utility payment assistance, or other social support group assistance.
    Do you know where to go for such help, or how to find a community resource?

    The 2-1-1 information referral network is our community resource connecting you and your neighbor to the social services agencies ready and able to help.

    2-1-1 is an easy to remember telephone number connecting people with important community services. The implementation of 2-1-1, managed through local United Way agencies, connects local social service and information referral agencies to people in need. United Way of America (UWA) and the Alliance for Information and Referral Systems (AIRS) continually seek federal funding so that every American has access to this essential service, but the local needs are truly meet through local funding and support. The national 211 program serves over 234 million Americans (more than 78% of the entire population) covering all or part of 46 states (including 31 states with 90%+ coverage) plus Washington DC and Puerto Rico. The remaining states are all in various stages of planning and implementation. Presently, parts of Florida, Tallahassee to Key West, have 211 coverage. In fact, the 211 program does not cover the ten counties of NW Florida.

    [FONT=times new roman,serif]Walton County, Florida does not yet have a 2-1-1 system. [/FONT]
    [FONT=times new roman,serif]Community Walton is on a mission to change that. [/FONT]
    We have plenty of energy going towards this project. Community Walton's 211 Committee is working on a collaborative effort with the United Way of Okaloosa/Walton Counties, local government, and some eighty local social service agencies to provide this service to the community. While we always need more volunteers to work on project, we also need your financial support to cover the capital and operating costs of running the telephone system, hiring and training the 211 telephone operators.
