850 Music & Entertainment

Exploring Entertainment in Florida's 850 & Beyond


Thrive Music Fest raised over $22,800 for Covenant Care’s hospice programs in Okaloosa and Walton counties. Over 21 generous sponsors, 50 talented musicians with 15 bands, 500 ticketholders/lovers of original music & countless volunteers contributed to its success. Covenant Care thanks each and every person who supported this event and for making a difference in the lives of our patients and families at a time when they need it most.


“It is amazing how each year Thrive grows by leaps and bounds, and this year it raised $5,000 more than last year” said Rachel Mayew, Covenant Care Donor Relations Manager. “I truly believe that people are drawn to Covenant’s mission and recognize the quality and compassionate care that is provided to Okaloosa and Walton counties.”


All proceeds from Thrive Music Fest benefit the unfunded and non-reimbursed hospice programs offered by Covenant Care, including children’s support, bereavement support, spiritual care and charity care.


“It also helps that collectively, our local music community has a big heart,” said Mayew. “I am supported in this event by a strong core group of volunteers, business partners and musicians, many of whom have been touched by Covenant. The group feels more like family than a professional network.”
