Join us for an epic weekend.

The Gala & Golf Weekend is the biggest fundraising weekend of the year for Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center. We hold both our annual gala and golf tournament during this weekend. That means two whole days of fun, celebrating all of the successes we have had throughout the year and raising money for our children and their futures!

Purchase your tickets today to reserve your spot at this spectacular weekend that all goes to benefit the ECCAC children and the families we serve every day in our fight to end child abuse and neglect.

Raise from Home vs. Raise in the Room

Can't go? Give now for a chance to win.

Help us raise the bar for the big night (even from your living room). Whatever we raise prior to the Gala, we will challenge attendees to raise their paddles and match (or beat) that amount right then in the room.

Our goal is to raise $25,000 prior to the Gala.

And to sweeten the pot, if you donate now, you will be entered into a drawing for one of our prizes—exclusive to our Raise from Home donors. Winners will be selected on the night of the Gala.
