On Saturday, February 18th, the City of Fort Walton Beach, Walker’s Ace Hardware, and Mango Disc Golf will host the 9th Annual Emerald Coast Ice Bowl® Disc Golf Tournament in Ferry Park in Fort Walton Beach. The proceeds collected from the tournament will benefit the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center, and the collected food will benefit the Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida Food Pantry.
Entry fee is $25 and 5 non-perishable food items. There will be two rounds of play, 6 divisions, raffles, prizes, and free a chili lunch for all players. Register at www.discgolfunited.com or on the morning of the tournament starting at 8 AM.
Through the years, the Ice Bowl® has raised thousands of dollars in support of the ECCAC and has collected thousands of pounds of food for hungry families in Fort Walton. To offer additional support to these charities, visit www.eccac.org/donate or http://ccnwfl.org/ .
Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center provides essential counseling and mental health services to the most vulnerable members of Okaloosa and Walton Counties. Because of their work successful prosecutions of child abusers have more than doubled in our area.
Catholic Charities of Northwest Florida Food Pantry provide meals daily as well as many bags of groceries for needy families that have a place to cook but lack the means to buy their own food.
