The Emerald Coast Honor Games invites the community and area business representatives to participate in “A Night of Honor” Tuesday, Oct. 10, at 5:30 p.m. to celebrate and commemorate our local veterans, first responders, and their stories.
“A Night of Honor” is an exclusive kickoff event for the inaugural Emerald Coast Honor Games, which are taking place on Nov. 11 at Legendary Marine. The event will take place in the Legendary Marine Showroom at the foot of the Mid-Bay Bridge. Attendees are invited to enjoy food, drinks, and festivities.
Guests will be introduced to the beneficiaries and the presentation of “Honor Stories” from local heroes. Attendees will also have the opportunity to purchase sponsorships for the year by “owning” one of the 13 stripes or 50 stars on the world’s largest U.S. flag painted on top of Legendary Marine.
As the Emerald Coast Honor Games’ mission surrounds raising funds to support defenders of the front line, the group has an innate reverence for those who serve our country and have created this event to commemorate our local heroes.
This event is family friendly and complimentary to attend, but RSVPs are encouraged. To RSVP, email email@example.com.
