Welcome to the 2021 Best of the Emerald Coast Virtual Auction & "Give Your Best" Fundraising Campaign benefiting the Junior League of the Emerald Coast!
Best of the Emerald Coast was launched as a community event by Rowland Publishing, Inc. through Emerald Coast Magazine. For the 12th consecutive year, the Junior League of the Emerald Coast is proud to be the event beneficiary. Emerald Coast Magazine's The Best of the Emerald Coast highlights those businesses whom exemplify professionalism and are valued by the community. Though we will not gather together this year for our traditional Best of the Emerald Coast event, we hope you join us in showing your generous support by joining our "Give Your Best" fundraising campaign.
We invite you to participate in our Virtual Silent Auction of exciting items, beginning October 11th through October 17th, donated by Best of the Emerald Coast Winners and Emerald Coast businesses and to consider "giving back" to the Junior League the value of a traditional Best of the Emerald Coast event ticket (or more if you can).
Proceeds from the Best of the Emerald Coast benefit the JLEC's signature programs, most notably the
Child Clothing Project. For 42 years, the JLEC has provided new clothes, shoes, books and toiletries to
more than 400 school children annually, across Walton and Okaloosa Counties. It takes $100 to provide
1 child with much needed essentials: 2 pairs of pants, 2 shirts, a pack of underwear, a pack of socks, a
jacket, and a pair of shoes. To meet the growing need in the region, the JLEC has established Child Clothing Closets with
these essential items in areas schools.
Every dollar earned by the JLEC stays in the Emerald Coast community!
