FORT WALTON BEACH — Local non-profit 90 Works is set to host Twilight in White at The Landing at Fort Walton Beach from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Sept. 9. Inspired by the white parties popping up around the world, the fundraising event is in its second year.

“We are excited to bring Twilight in White back to The Landing," said Anthony Sawyer, director of outreach for 90Works. “Last year, our guests really enjoyed the atmosphere and putting on their white attire. This is a very unique event in Fort Walton. There’s something about a white party that makes it very inclusive because we can all do it.”

Attendees are asked to dress in coastal white attire for an evening al fresco, featuring the musical stylings of the Moos Brothers. Party goers will also enjoy a raffle, photo booth and a VIP experience that includes an exclusive lounge sponsored by Courtney Simpson, State Farm agent. Tables, linens and chairs are provided. Guests are encouraged to bring white decor for their tables to compete in a table decorating contest. Outside beverages are welcome. Deep Dish Rescue will have food available for purchase.

General admission tickets, which include reserved seating and a welcome bag, are $30. VIP tickets are $50, and come with VIP seating, floral decor for the table, a welcome bag, two tickets for beer or wine and access to the VIP lounge. General admission tables for eight are $200. VIP tables are $350. Military families can get a 15 percent discount on tickets with promo code MILITARY. To purchase tickets or learn more about the event, visit TwilightInWhite.Eventbrite.com

Funds from Twilight in White go directly toward funding 90Works’s Project90 Impact program, which has a 90 percent success rate in helping vulnerable populations in crisis become self-sufficient and stable in 90 days. With a focus on veterans and their families, this model makes a dramatic impact in improving the quality of life for those in Northwest Florida.

“The funds raised at Twilight in White make a powerful social impact in our community,” Sawyer said. “We continue to expand the use of our Project90 model in Okaloosa County, and we brought the program to the Fort Walton Beach Housing Authority this year.”
