The first Boat Week activities kicked off Wed Aug 11th with hundreds of guests in attendance at Helen Back Cafe in Fort Walton Beach, which featured aCasino night theme. The Helen Back girls wore sexy outfits and served cold beer and hot pizza all night long, while the Emerald Coast Foundation staffoffered the full line of new Emerald Coast Poker Run Tees and apparel. The Sporty new FORD FIESTA, which is the Grand Prize for the poker run, was on display, sponsored by Gary Smith Ford.
As FPC and Emerald Coast Foundation ramp up registration efforts for the Saturday poker run, it is clear that the poker run is still far under its normal numbers. WE NEED MORE BOATS! Registration is open at the Ramada Beach Resort, all day Thursday and Friday. No penalties or late fees apply…so all boaters are asked to come out and support this 18th Annual event, which raises money for at least eight local youth organizations!!
The Ramada Resort is on Hwy 98, one mile East of the Brooks Bridge. Or from Destin, head west from the Hwy 98 bridge, 3 miles. The entire FPC staff including Stu, Jackie, Laura, are available to answer any questions. STU: 954-684-9333.
