oys and Girls Club of The Emerald 
Coast hosted their second annual 
Crawfi sh Boil at Harry T’s Lighthouse 
at HarborWalk Village on May 19. 

The fundraiser was to help provide youth 
development services to children ages 5-18 and 
spread the word about this great organization. 
Aside from getting 1.5-2 lbs of crawfi sh, corn, 
potatoes, and sausage, attendees were also able 
to enter a raffl e. Two baskets fi lled with items 
from local businesses, one worth $2800, and the 
second worth $3200. A great way to support local 
programs and also enjoy some delicious crawfi sh 
fresh from Louisiana. 

Crawfi sh Billie Adams has been in the business 

for over 20 years and perfecting the way he cooks 
them. He travels around the area, always at new 
locations, so keep an eye out for where he’ll be. 
The smell alone brought crawfi sh lovers close 
who stopped to enjoy and talk about local cuisine. 
The restaurant was fi lled with people who 
couldn’t resist some great food for a good cause as 
people gathered around even on the hot day. Kids 
were excited, though some of them scared to get 
close to the live crawfi sh and even learning how 
they were cooked. 

The day left happy and full customers, many 

who couldn’t wait to get more crawfi sh the next 
time Billie was around.
