The Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center’s (ECCAC) Young Ambassador board recently hosted a fundraiser at the Marina Café on the harbor in Destin. The restaurant was kind enough to donate 50% of the evening’s bar sales which amounted to a $1,278.69 donation.

As well, Marina Café is now partnering with ECCAC to offer adorable stuffed Riley dogs for a $20 donation that will 100% benefit the non-profit organization. Riley is ECCAC’s original therapy dog, a Maltese owned by Jacqui Broadus, the Clinical Supervisor, who oversees the therapists.
