For the last 21 years, the Emerald Coast Poker Run has been making waves in Northwest Florida! Boat Week is a weeklong boating celebration on the Emerald Coast that rounds out with The Emerald Coast Poker Run. Benefitting the Emerald Coast Foundation, an organization that supports children's charities and youth organizations in Okaloosa County, the Emerald Coast Poker Run and Boat Week events, have raised over 2 million dollars to date for its cause.
