Race, silent auction and raffle draws hundreds to Seaside

Nearly 50 stand up paddle boarders competed for a great cause Sept. 19 as they competed in a 3-mile and 1/2-mile race in the Gulf of Mexico. More than $10,000 was raised from the event benefiting Holly Burke, an 18-year-old Destin resident suffering from clear cell sarcoma, a rare aggressive melanoma, and 28-year-old South Walton resident Jason Thompson, who is fighting a rare form of leukemia. A silent auction for great items along with a raffle for a YOLO YAK were just part of the fun-filled day that ended with live music by Heritage in the Seaside Amphitheater.
