DESTIN, FL, Dec. 20 /CNW/ - Just in time for Christmas, the employees of
Sandestin Investments, LLC have spread holiday cheer to hundreds of
families and children in need this season. This past week, SDI
employees were able to donate hundreds of toys and gift cards to
support the children and families in the local community.
More than 132 children and families were adopted by SDI employees for
the Santa Patrol Program which supplies gifts to the underprivileged
children in Walton County.
In addition, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort invited the children of the
Youth Village to a special holiday event at the Grand Sandestin lobby
located at Sandestin on December 16. The children received a special
tour of the Enchanted Forest Gingerbread Display conducted by one of
Sandestin's acclaimed Pastry Chef's, complete with cookies and hot
cocoa. Following the tour, Santa arrived to visit and listen to all of
their Christmas wishes and was able to provide each child with a
beautifully wrapped gift.
Many local residents of the community were also able to contribute with
Sandestin's "Tee off for Toys" event. Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort
offered complimentary golf at all three of its public courses, Rave
Golf Club, Baytowne Golf Club and The Links Course on December 19. In

donated new, unwrapped toys and gift cards with values of $15 and
more. Hundreds of toys and thousands of dollars were collected and
will be able to benefit the Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center.
