Boshamps Seafood and Oyster House located on the Destin Harbor announces 6th Annual BoJamz Music and Arts Festival benefitting The Wright Fight for Cystic Fibrosis on March 31, 2019. BoJamz is a one day music festival on the Destin Harbor featuring a silent auction and huge crawfish boil aimed at bringing the community together to raise money for a great cause. This year, proceeds from BoJamz will go to benefit The Wright Fight for Cystic Fibrosis. William Wright, a lifelong Destin resident, and his wife Magen have twin sons, Merritt and Campbell, who were born with Cystic Fibrosis (CF). CF is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. There is some real potential for a cure so Boshamps is asking the community to come together to help. BoJamz is making a name for itself along the Emerald Coast, drawing a larger crowd and more recognition each year. In 2017, over 1500 people attended BoJamz and even more are anticipated to come this year. Funds will be raised by collecting a $10 suggested donation at the door as well as a large silent auction featuring items donated by the community. Live […]
