Last week, we had the great privilege of kicking off the beginning ofÂ Century 21 Blue Marlin‘sÂ 4th Annual Charity Golf Tournament! On June 2, 2016, friends, co-workers, and members of the community gathered at the Legendary Yacht ClubÂ for celebratory cocktails by Chaste 850 and Destin Brewery, light bites by our boys atÂ Brotula’s Seafood House & Steamer and Jackacuda’s Seafood & Sushi, an incredible array of raffle and silent auction items donated by Harry T’s Lighthouse, GUSU, Boogies Water Sports, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and many more. But most importantly, they all joined us in anticipation of the announcement of the 2016 Charity Golf Tournament beneficiary!
DRUM ROLL PLEASE!
Proceeds from this year’s pre-tournament toast and Charity Golf Tournament will benefit the Silver Sands School! For those of you who were unable to attend the announcement (and therefore, missed an awesome party!) the Silver Sands School isÂ a Special Needs Day School which provides educational services to students who because of their mental functioning levels require services beyond those offered by other special educational programs in regular schools. Silver Sands School, located in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, serves approximately 170 students with disabilities ranging in age from 3 to 22 from Okaloosa and Walton counties.
Â â€œHaving toured Silver Sands SchoolÂ last year we instantly felt a need to give back,â€ said Century 21 Blue MarlinÂ Co-Broker, Jerry Sullivan. â€œIt means a lot to us to give this amazing school the recognition it deserves.â€

And the icing on the cake? We celebrated a birthday! Co-Broker Jerry Sullivan was surprised with a sweet cake by his even sweeter wife, Leslie.
In true birthday boy fashion, Jerry ended up having to take a dip in the pool after $1,000 was raised for him to take the plunge!
