ABOUT SEMPER FI 5K CHARITY RUN OF 2015

Last year’s race took place on September 13, 2014 and was a great success with almost double the race participants as previous years, totaling 2500. The Marine Corps Aviation Association and Marine Corps League like to thank everyone involved in making this event such a great success and look forward to a larger event in years to come.

OUR HISTORY

Started in 1983, the original charity race was organized with the goal of helping families of the 241 American service members killed in the bombing attack on the Marine barracks in Beirut. Today, the purpose of the race is to give back to the Pensacola community that so willingly supports Marine training. All proceeds go directly to local outreach programs.

Sara Evans And REO Speedwagon Ready For The Next Crossroads

Posted on: August 13th, 2015 by Chris

Sara Evans will team up with classic rockers REO Speedwagon for the next episode of CMT Crossroads.

Sara is a veteran when it comes to the Crossroads format as she’s previously teamed with Maroon 5 in for an episode (2008) and took part in the Joe Walsh and Friends episode in 2012.

“We met Sara Evans when REO played with Brad Paisley at the Sony Music Nashville annual cruise and we all became fast friends,” REO’s lead man Kevin Cronin says. “When we got the offer to do CMT Crossroads with her we jumped at the chance to hear Sara’s sweet voice on our songs, and to put our spin on hers. Sara put me at ease right away and her energy is contagious.”

Sara is just as excited about the collaboration.

“I’ve been a huge fan of REO Speedwagon for as long as I can remember. Their songs have been a part of the soundtrack of my life and I’m thrilled to be joining them on stage for CMT Crossroads. It truly is a dream come true!”

The two are working on ideas for the show, which will tape in Nashville on Monday (August 18) and will air Saturday, September 9 at 9PM CT on CMT.

Panhandle Charitable Open – September 25 – 26

John Peacock Chairman PCO

As many of you know, the Panhandle Charitable Open was started in memory of my son John Ryan Peacock, who lost his life in a car accident at the age of 17.

Each year, we hold this charity event not only in his memory but to celebrate gifting to our community in his name.

The Panhandle Charitable Open, a 501c3 non-profit organization, has raised thousands of dollars for local charities thanks to the generous support of businesses and individuals like you. This year is our 14th year bringing this event to the local community.

Mission Statement

The Panhandle Charitable Open (PCO) is dedicated to serving the needs of our community with emphasis on elderly care, special needs situations for children and feeding the hungry. The PCO focuses its funding on committed, grass roots organizations that rely strongly on volunteer efforts and where foundation support will make a significant difference. All of the net proceeds from our efforts go directly to local charity.

The success in recent years of the PCO enabled our board to donate over $535,000 to charities such as Child Guardians, Inc., Gulf Coast Kid’s House, Council on Aging of West Florida, ARC Gateway, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Florida, Independence for the Blind, American Cancer Society, and Covenant Hospice. The primary charities for 2015 are Child Guardians, Inc., Council on Aging of West Florida, and Gulf Coast Kid’s House. Increasing the number of charities which participate highlights a goal of the PCO to continue to expand the impact and reach of our golf tournament. The PCO has continued to grow in popularity and success each year.

We welcome your participation in the 14th Annual Panhandle Charitable Open as we continue to build this event into the premier charity golf tournament on the Florida Panhandle.
