Boat Week & Poker Run

Boat Week
on the Emerald Coast

August 9-13

Boat Week is a week-long boating celebration along the Emerald Coast, that rounds out with The Emerald Coast Poker Run. These events are orchestrated by the Emerald Coast Foundation, an organization that supports children’s charities and youth organizations in Okaloosa County.

We want anyone who is interested in participating in the Poker Run to have the opportunity, so we have broken the event down into 2 different levels: Emerald & Ruby. Registration for each level is based on certain criteria.

A little about us...

The strength of the Emerald Coast Foundation is its ability to achieve its mission: ECF is committed to “Investing in Youth” in Northwest Florida. This capacity is encapsulated in a number of fund raising activities that take place throughout the calendar year. The largest is the Emerald Coast Poker Run, held in August each year.
The Emerald Coast Foundation is the only not-for-profit organization that puts forth such effort, for the sole purpose of expanding its charitable reward and helping our most precious resource: the children of our community. To date, we have raised over 2 million dollars for our causes.
