The Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center (ECCAC) received a generous $11,000 donation from the Rosemary Beach Foundation (RBF), of which a portion of this was raised from the 4th Annual BINGO Brews & BBQ event held this past fall.
Established in 2016, RBF has donated $1 million to local organizations, schools, hurricane recovery and COVID relief. RBF offers community events, educational programs and charitable activities in Walton County, Florida. In addition to the BINGO event, other annual programs are the 30A Cornhole Tournament, Girls Getaway, Rosemary Beach Unleashed, Rosemary Beach Holiday Tour of Homes, and Music in Pictures, an educational arts initiative in 20 Walton County schools.
“The Rosemary Beach Foundation is grateful for the support of our charitable events throughout the year,” commented Austin Bentley, RBF Board VP. “We look forward to future opportunities to partner with the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center.”
