Bay Breeze Patio will host the annual Eggs on the Beach EggFest Grilling Competition from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sept. 30 at Seascape Resort in Miramar Beach.
Bay Breeze Patio is inviting non-profit organizations to register a cook team and registration fees will be waived. Non-profit cook teams will be competing for cash donations toward their cause.
“The non-profit category has continued to grow and we want to make it even more lucrative for the charity partners this year,” said Susan Kiley, co-owner of Bay Breeze Patio. “We have increased our prize money for non-profit teams to $6,000 to be divided between first, second and third place winners.”
Non-profit cook teams will compete for taster votes to earn a cash donation toward their charitable organization. The team with the most votes will be the Non-Profit People’s Choice winner and earn $3,000. Second place team will earn $2,000 and third place team will receive $1,000.
Registration is now open for non-profit as well as all other teams. Teams may be up to six members and each team will prepare, cook and serve their favorite recipe(s) on the Big Green Egg. Bay Breeze Patio will provide a demo Big Green Egg for each team as well as provide lump charcoal, fire starters, chairs and a six-foot table, tent, paper plates, plastic utensils, napkins and toothpicks. Cook team registration includes a welcome bag, including a commemorative T-shirt and Wayne's Get Grillin' Rubs.
In addition, proceeds from Eggs on the Beach EggFest will benefit two local non-profit partners, the Fisher House of the Emerald Coast and Food for Thought. The Fisher House of the Emerald Coast, located on Eglin Air Force Base, provides a "home away from home" for military families during treatment for serious illness or physical/occupational therapy and Food For Thought serves students in Okaloosa and Walton counties with healthy meals.
For those who are interested in owning a Big Green Egg, demo Eggs, which will be used during the event, will be sold in advance with nest (metal stand) and plate setter for a discounted price. Both large and XLarge Eggs will be sold and all come with a limited lifetime warranty. Demo Eggs must be picked up after the event, between 4-5 p.m. on Sept. 30.
Taster tickets are also on sale now with special advance pricing of $32/adult, $18/child (age 11-17) and kids 10 and under are free. Sponsorships are also available.
