Chamber Donates $500 to Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance

Sarah Davis and Amy Perry
On April 8, the Destin Area Chamber of Commerce presented a $500 check to the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance (CBA) in appreciation of its assistance during the 2014 Destin’s Superhero Bayou, Bay, & Back 1-Mile Fun Run, 5K Run/Walk, 10K, & Half Marathon.  Almost 500 runners competed in the event, now in its fourth year, and the CBA’s assistance was essential during the race and in pre-event marketing.

Sarah Davis, CBA Fund Development and Marketing Officer, accepted the donation from Destin Area Chamber Chairman Amy Perry of Pleat, Perry & Ritchie, P.A., during the Chamber's April 8 Leaders In Business Lunch.

The CBA is an organization committed to sustaining and providing optimum utilization of the Choctawhatchee Basin watershed.  Since the race courses offer sweeping views of the Choctawhatchee Bay and waterways of Destin, the CBA is the perfect partner for the race.  The health of the area’s water resources is the foundation of its identity and economy.  Be it fishing, tourism, or quality of life, everything revolves around a healthy watershed.
