These events raised a total of $51,151 to go towards the 23rd Annual Take-a-Kid Fishing Day and Destin Harvest projects.

 

The 32nd Annual Caddyshack Classic Golf Tournament took place August 24 at Emerald Bay Golf Course. Sixteen teams competed in the four-man scramble, raising a total of $9,031 for Harbor Docks Charities.

Harbor Docks Charity Auction, a silent and live auction, was held on Saturday, August 26, at Harbor Docks. Over $41,000 was raised, all of which will go to Take-a-Kid Fishing Day and Destin Harvest projects.

 

Harbor Docks Charities would like to thank their sponsors who made these events possible, auction item donors, and everyone who participated in these events. Because of these generous people, Harbor Docks will treat over 350 underprivileged children to a day of fishing on local charter boats Nov. 5.

 

Children and their chaperones will be treated to breakfast, a day of fishing in the Gulf of Mexico and a fish fry. Each child will take home a rod and reel and a t-shirt. This would not be possible without the efforts and generosity of volunteers, boat captains, crews and everyone that has participated in fundraising events.
