Best of the Emerald Coast

GIVE YOUR BEST

Best of the Emerald Coast was launched as a community event. Though we will not gather together this year for Best of the Emerald Coast, we encourage you to celebrate the 2021 Best winners by frequenting their businesses, using their services, and by showing your generous support for our beneficiary, the Junior League of the Emerald Coast.

You can do this by taking part in our Give Your Best fundraising campaign.

For the 12th consecutive year, we are proud to benefit the Junior League of the Emerald Coast, an organization of nearly 300 women united by their commitment to bettering the community — and themselves — through volunteering.

Proceeds from Best of the Emerald Coast benefits the Child Clothing Project, the signature program of the Junior League of the Emerald Coast. Each year it provides clothing, books, school supplies and other essential needs to more than 400 children in our local community.

There are several wonderful ways to Give Your Best.

In lieu of purchasing a Best of the Emerald Coast ticket, we encourage all of our winners and would-be attendees to donate to the Junior League’s Child Clothing Project.

To donate, simply visit the Junior League’s donation page on 850tix.com or text BOECGIVES to 76278.

You can also Give Your Best by participating in a Virtual Silent Auction of exciting items donated by Best Winners and Emerald Coast businesses.

Special thanks to our generous sponsors and to you for making the Emerald Coast the BEST community ever!
