The Boys & Girls Clubs announces a new date for its first annual Merry Little Christmas Concert. Celebrate the season of giving by joining the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast for a holiday-themed concert Thursday, Dec. 20, at 6 PM at the South Walton Club.
Local musicians, including Jacob Mohr and Beachcomber Music Award winner Chris Alvarado, will take the stage and perform the season’s favorite holiday tunes.
“This concert is the perfect event to kick off the holiday season,” says Shervin Rassa of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast. “The artists we’ve lined up are local favorites, and I’m excited to hear their versions of Christmas classics.”
General Admission ($35) and VIP ($50) tickets are available for the event, and all guests will enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres. Additionally, VIP guests get reserved seating and a complimentary glass of champagne. A cash bar will also be available.
Concertgoers can get a jump on holiday shopping with an incredible silent auction, featuring gift options for everyone on your list.
A portion of the event proceeds will benefit The Boys & Girls Clubs of Bay County in an effort to revitalize programs impacted by Hurricane Michael.
“The funds generated from this event will help us continue to work within the community,” says Mr. Rassa. “Because of support from events like this, we’re able to build great futures through a variety of programs for the children who come to the clubs.”
As details come together for this event, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast is still seeking sponsorships. To learn about the opportunities for your business to get involved, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
