Your Weekly Update from the Niceville Valparaiso Chamber!



April 15, 2019




Don't miss your chance to be a part of the Chamber's biggest, most popular fundraising event of the year! Over 150 businesses and individuals participate and market themselves through sponsorships and donations, show your support and gain valuable exposure by helping us to make this tournament the best ever!


There is still time to play with two Team Sponsorships available. Join 30 other teams for a great day of networking. Starting at registration with lunch, silent auction, 50/50 for fireworks, and Bloody Mary Bar sponsored by Brookdale Bluewater Bay and swag bags sponsored by Okaloosa Gas & filled with goodies. Move to the course for a scramble style tournament where you will be greeted by 11 Table Sponsors, and fun contests like closest to the pin, hole-in-one's and draw your score. Wrapping the day up with dinner, awards sponsored by Eglin Federal Credit Union and door prizes.


Please secure your sponsorships and drop off or make arrangements for your Auction, Door Prize and Golfer Swag Bag donations by Thursday, April 18th.

Second Wednesday Breakfast


The University of West Florida Emerald Coast sponsored a great Chamber Breakfast. The UWF Head Football Coach Pete Shinnick shared his experience standing up a brand new football program and leading the Argonauts to play in the national championship game in only 2 years! We appreciate the great programs, services and opportunities UWF provides at the Emerald Coast campus in Fort Walton Beach and their main campus.
