Two Pedego electric bikes were given away at a May 4 party at Seaside, the official launch for Safe Water for Walton.
The newly-formed non-profit community-based organization with a focus on regional and local water policy issues launched its website this spring. Rolled out in conjunction with the website was a structured membership program.
A membership drive kicked off with the website featured the drawing for the two bicycles donated by Pedego Electric Bikes 30A, one of the website sponsors.
Existing Safe Water for Walton members were automatically signed up for the drawing, along with others becoming members by May 2.
The Safe Water for Walton May 4 event was a “party within a party,” in conjunction with the former Perspicacity, Seaside’s open market for clothing, shoes and accessories celebrating its reintroduction as Cabana by the Seaside Style.
According to Safe Water for Walton board members:
More than $4,000 has been raised over the past t
wo months since the launching of the organization’s website.
Just launched is a second promotion the non-profit organization. Anyone becoming a member online through July 1 is automatically entered into a drawing for one of two half-day fishing charters in the Choctawhatchee Bay. The charter trips were donated by the popular Capt. Hunter Ray with Florida Boy Adventures. That drawing is scheduled for July 3 and the winners will be notified.
The year-long 2018 Safe Water for Walton kickoff is to culminate with a members only reception in northern Walton County which will feature some “ground-breaking news.”
