Take steps to end domestic and sexual violence. Whether you choose to parade in pumps, walk in wedges, strut in stilettos or stroll in sneakers, make plans to join the Rosemary Beach Foundation Friday, May 19, for Walk Her Way.
Men, women and children of all ages are invited to follow the New Orleans style jazz band for a short walk through the streets of Rosemary Beach. Decorate your shoes (heels are suggested but not required), and wear costumes to reflect your style and personality. Walk as an individual or enter as a team with your family, friends and co-workers!
Cost is $30 for adults, and $10 for children under 12. Sign up at walkherway.com.
Registration includes admission to the after party in the Rosemary Beach Town Hall. Attendees will enjoy live music by Totally Hep-Cats, along with food and beer provided by Bruno’s Pizza, Freshii, Shades Bar & Grill and Smallcakes Cupcakery.
One-of-a-kind “Shoe” awards created by Walton County teachers and students will be given for the highest heels, best costume, most spirit and more.
Walk Her Way benefits Shelter House, the domestic and sexual violence center serving Okaloosa and Walton counties, and Rosemary Beach Foundation, a nonprofit organization that offers community, educational and other charitable activities in Walton County.
Event sponsors include Rosemary Beach Cottage Rental Company, Rosemary Beach Realty, the Pearl, the Merchants of Rosemary Beach, Moonpize, Rent Gear Here, McNeese Title Company, Bombora Sun & Surf, Perspicasity, and Rosemary Beach Trading Company.
