It's time to get out your favorite  coastal chic threads, put on your dancing shoes and get ready for a memorable evening raising funds for the kids! 

Children’s Volunteer Health Network (CVHN) is excited to announce the Big Give is set for Friday, Sept. 27 at Bud & Alley’s in Seaside!

 "Last year's Big Give was my first signature event as CVHN'S new executive director,” Brian Lowe of CVHN, said. “A year later, I have developed an even greater grasp of the needs of children who are underserved, and I'm excited about gathering together for a fun time to raise lots of money to ensure all of our kids have access to quality care."

The CVHN Big Give is a Carribean-themed evening featuring live music, dancing, and a delicious buffet dinner provided by Bud & Alley's. This annual event raises money that directly impacts CVHN programs serving children in need. Tickets to the event are $100 each. For more information, or to purchase tickets, go to

The event will include an array of live and silent auction items, which will be available early viewing soon! A couple of this year’s live auction items sure to cause a bidding frenzy include a week long trip to Bali and a trip to Anguilla. The silent auction is also packed full of tickets to local events, staycations, and exclusive items and packages from local businesses including fine art photography of some of our very own SoWal photos by Kurt Lischka of Moon Creek Gallery

"Dave and I are excited to be hosting the CVHN Big Give again this year,” Carol Rauschkolb, wife of Bud & Alley’s owner, Dave Rauschkolb, said. “CVHN is an organization that we whole-heartedly believe in and support. We feel strongly about helping local families regain hope through community support, and we love that CVHN has been working hard to do this since 2005 by providing free dental and medical healthcare to uninsured and under-insured children in Walton and Okaloosa County.”

All proceeds from the event go to CVHN, which spends 94 cents of every dollar on its programs. CVHN provides kids in Walton and Okaloosa Counties with access to health care through its three major programs: the Mobile Dental Clinic that visits elementary schools and other local charities, a network of volunteer providers, and the CVHN Dental Clinic located in Santa Rosa Beach. CVHN also provides dental and vision care to underserved children throughout Walton and Okaloosa Counties. Visit for more information about the mission of CVHN.
