Support Our Charities This Summer

Everyone is looking for ways to beat the heat this summer and enjoy family fun. In addition to their partnerships with us, our charities have their own fundraising events throughout the year, and you can support them by purchasing tickets and attending. Here are a few of the events, starting THIS evening with HarborWalk Village's Red, White, and Blue Hero Celebration every Thursday evening at 7pm. They will honor a local hero who has gone above and beyond in our community and tonight's local hero to be recognized is Horizon's Dr. Julie McNabb. We can personally attest to the heroism we see in Julie and her dedication to the Emerald Coast Affiliate of the Arc. She is passionate and loving to all those they support with disabilities. We are so proud! Congratulations Julie! Support her this evening, and stick around for the beautiful fireworks. More information here.
