Emerald Coast Parrot Head Club Supports Take Stock in Children Scholarship Program

The Emerald Coast Parrot Head Club recently made a generous donation to support the Take Stock in Children Scholarship Program of the Okaloosa Public Schools Foundation.  That donation will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, by the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations.

The Emerald Coast Parrot Head Club (ECPHC) was established to promote social and civic activities for people with similar interests, centered around the tropical spirit of Jimmy Buffett’s music. ECPHC is a non-profit corporation that supports local environmental causes as well as many local and national charities through both fund raising and volunteer activities. Within the mission of ECPHC is a dedication to funding scholarships for local students.  The club raises about $15,000 for various charities every year!

The ECPHC social functions incorporate the tropical flavor of the Emerald Coast area, coupled with the coastal philosophy of Jimmy Buffett. The club is open to all that share our respect of this area.
