Harbor Docks 28th Annual Caddyshack Golf Tournament & Annual Auction are the Most Successful Events
September 5, 2013 by SoWal Staff
Harbor Docks recently hosted their 28th Annual Caddyshack Classic Golf Tournament and Annual Auction, which proved to be the most successful event to date raising $59,805 for local charities - Take A Kid Fishing Day and Destin Harvest. The two-part fundraiser began on Friday, August 23, 2013, with the Caddyshack Classic 18-Hole Golf Tournament at Emerald Bay Golf Club and continued through Saturday, August 24, 2013, with the 28th Annual Auction on the Big Deck at Harbor Docks.
The Caddyshack Golf Tournament hosted 24 teams at Emerald Bay Golf Club where attendees were welcomed with a barbecue lunch graciously donated by Jim ‘N Nick’s of Destin. Over 200 guests attended the Annual Auction and bid on 19 live auction lots with items such as a BOTE board, a trip to Montana, a Fender guitar signed by Brad Paisley and much more. The silent auction included over 40 items such as vacation stays and an iPad donated by Blue Marlin Realty Group.
100% of the proceeds from both events benefited two local causes including the Harbor Docks’ charity outreach, Take A Kid Fishing Day and Destin Harvest. A donation in the amount of $10,000 was given to Destin Harvest while the remaining $49,805 benefitted Take A Kid Fishing Day, which will take place on Sunday, November 4, 2013.
The Harbor Docks Golf Tournament was in its 28th year at Emerald Bay. The golf tournament raises around $10k-12k every year and last year’s auction raised $31,000. This year’s total of $59,805 was the largest amount raised in the 28 years Harbor Docks has hosted this two-day event.
