For the last 24 years, the Emerald Coast Poker Run has been making waves in Northwest Florida! Boat Week is a weeklong boating celebration on the Emerald Coast that rounds out with The Emerald Coast Poker Run. Benefitting the Emerald Coast Foundation, an organization that supports children’s charities and youth organizations in Okaloosa County, the Emerald Coast Poker Run and Boat Week events, have raised over 2 million dollars to date for its cause. Boat Week events and activities have been designed for the participation and enjoyment of the local community and all of our area visitors. Events include a Ladies Night Luau at Helen Back, Miss Boat Week Bikini Contest, a Captain’s party, and The Emerald Coast Poker Run on the beautiful emerald waters of the Gulf followed by the Poker Run Party at the Emerald Coast Convention Center.

We could use your help to ensure a successful event to benefit The Emerald Coast Foundation. If you would like more information on how you can volunteer with our organization, please contact us.
