Harbor Docks Welcomes Community to its Free Thanksgiving Day Dinner
October 22, 2013 by SoWal Staff
On Thursday, November 28, from 11:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. Harbor Docks invites family, friends, locals and tourists to join the celebration and enjoy a traditional, home-style Thanksgiving Day meal.
In an effort to help eliminate substandard local living conditions, Charles Morgan III, owner of Harbor Docks, partners with Okaloosa Habitat for Humanity and Destin Harvest to serve the feast. Morgan covers the entire cost, while raising awareness and funds for the non-profit organizations. Morgan finds this time of year to be an occasion to show gratitude within the community and prepares this delicious dinner so guests leave relaxed and ready to enjoy their holiday.
AJ’s Seafood and Oyster Bar has graciously donated ham for the event while The Donut Hole will again provide the dessert. There will be table service with plated food to avoid lines and there will also be a cash bar. Okaloosa Habitat for Humanity and Destin Harvest contribute 200 volunteers to cover every position in the restaurant. Harbor Docks employees will also be on-site to assist with this heartwarming event.
Donations may be made to Okaloosa Habitat for Humanity or Destin Harvest as a “thank you” and to assist them with their work in the local community. Last year the annual Thanksgiving event fed more than 1,500 people and raised more than $20,000 with 100 percent of donations going directly to local needs.
Everyone is encouraged to partake in this year’s Thanksgiving feast at Harbor Docks. If you are interested in volunteering for this event please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for details on available times.
