6th Annual Pelican Plunge Raises over $7,000 for The Emerald Coast Foundation!


February 4th, 2022 - Saltwater Restaurants, Inc. presented a check to The Emerald Coast Foundation in the amount of $7,264.00 during the Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce First Friday Coffee.


The Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island hosted the 6th Annual Pelican Plunge on January 1st 2022. Over 200 participants came out on New Year’s Day to say bye to the past year… or 2 and plunged into the Gulf for 2022.


Year after year the Pelican Plunge has grown to become a “must attend” New Year’s Day event for the Fort Walton Beach-Destin area. The event symbolizes more than a fresh start, it’s a way our community comes together to support our most valuable asset… THE CHILDREN! 100% of the proceeds directly support the children of The Emerald Coast Foundation!


On behalf of The Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island, Saltwater Restaurants were happy to present The Emerald Coast Foundation with a check for $7,264.00, THE MOST MONEY EVERY RAISED!! This huge success is directly related to The Emerald Coast Foundation’s board members, volunteers, and everyone who comes out to plunge on New Year's Day.
