Harbor Docks Hosts Fall Charity Events

August 7, 2013 by SoWal Staff

On Friday August 23 Harbor Docks will host the 28th annual Caddy Shack Classic Charity Golf Tournament at Emerald Bay Golf Club. The tournament has a scramble format. Registration begins at noon at Emerald Bay Golf Club with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. The cost is $500 per team or $125 per golfer. Hole sponsorships are available for $100. Mulligans, closest to the pin, long drives, and other contests can be entered at the course for donations. More than $300,000 has been raised since the tournament’s inception.

The 28th Annual Charity Auction will be held Saturday night, August 24, on The Big Deck at Harbor Docks. World famous auctioneer Ted Corcoran will be the host. There will be a silent auction from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m., with the live auction immediately following. Numerous vacation packages, fishing and hunting trips, original art and jewelry and more will be auctioned. There will even be a frog-gigging trip on the Choctawhatchee River for auction. A $15 donation will be accepted at the door and a buffet dinner and cash bar will be provided. Last year over $31,000 was raised at this event. Local musician Chris Alvarado will play during the silent auction and Destin favorite Cadillac Willy will perform after the live auction.

All proceeds from the golf tournament and auction will fund the 19th Annual Take a Kid Fishing Day on Sunday, November 4. This charity has enabled more than 7,500 children to enjoy a day of fishing on Destin’s finest charter boats. The kids are fed breakfast at Harbor Docks, sent fishing, treated to a delicious fish fry, and given rods and reels and other treats. It is a very special day helping hundreds of children in the area.

Finally, on Thanksgiving Day, Harbor Docks will host their 19th Annual Thanksgiving Feast. People from all walks of life gather at the Destin restaurant in a true Thanksgiving tradition. Those who are capable of making donations are encouraged to do so. Those who aren’t capable are treated to a complimentary meal of a lifetime. Everyone is invited. No questions are asked. Everyone celebrates together. All proceeds raised benefit Habitat for Humanity and Destin Harvest projects.
