Perdido Key Area Chamber of Commerce raised the annual donation in 2018 to contribute to scholarships from the Frank Brown Foundation for Music during the annual fall golf tournament

PERDIDO KEY, FLA. December 12, 2018 – The Eagles for Education Charity Golf Tournament on November 9, 2018, raised funds for the Perdido Chamber’s annual scholarship donation to the Frank Brown Foundation for Music. This enjoyable kick-off to the highly awaited Frank Brown International Songwriter’s Festival was a great way to give back to the main mission of the foundation- to assist students in Baldwin and Escambia County who acknowledge the significance of music and songwriting, and financially support those who display a serious interest in music. The Perdido Key Area has an extended history of music and songwriting shaping the culture of the community. The festival has created a lasting impression on the Perdido Area, creating a musical backbone for our treasured area. The Perdido Chamber is proud to give a contribution to this foundation, who brings such a large impact to our Perdido community both morally and economically.
In 2018, The Eagles for Education Charity Golf Tournament allowed the Perdido Chamber to raise its previous year’s donation to $1,500.00 in scholarships to students in both Baldwin and Escambia Counties, totaling $3,000.00 in funds for the Foundation. Fostering a long time partnership with the Frank Brown, the Perdido Key Chamber felt that giving back to the foundation would positively benefit the importance of education in both Florida and Alabama. "All of us who work together to create a better community are proud of the Perdido Key Chamber.” Said Joe Gilchrist, Founder and President of the Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival and the Frank Brown Foundation for Music, “The Chamber has graciously funded a portion of the Frank Brown Foundation effort to provide economic support for area students, encouraging them to use music to create a better society." 
The Frank Brown International Foundation for Music produces the Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival annually. In its' 34th year, it is the oldest festival of its kind in the country. This year, the festival brought in over 200 Grammy award-winning and up and coming songwriters from around the world. It brought thousands of people to our area, and to 32 different venues ranging from Fairhope, AL to downtown Pensacola, FL, to enjoy our region and to experience our unique communities and our amazing small businesses!
