MIRAMAR BEACH – Susan Kiley and Wayne Paul, organizers of the annual Eggs on the Beach grilling fundraiser, announced they have canceled the annual event for 2020.
“It was not an easy call for many reasons,” said Kiley and Paul, who also own Bay Breeze Patio in Miramar Beach. “‘Eggs’ does not easily lend itself to social distancing so we are reluctant to take any chances with anyone’s health. And, we feel we cannot ask our friends, family and fellow business owners to spend sponsorship dollars on ‘Eggs’ when things have been so rough this year.”
The seventh annual EggFest had been scheduled for Sept. 26 at Seascape Resort. Kiley and Paul plan to bring back the grilling extravaganza in 2021.
Centered around the popular Big Green Egg Komodo-style grill, Eggs on the Beach raises money for local causes. The 2019 installment brought in $40,000 for Food for Thought and Fisher House of the Emerald Coast.
