Destin Charity Wine Auction Benefits 15 Local Children’s Charities

The nation’s third largest charity wine auction, as named by Wine Spectator Magazine, awarded a record-breaking $2.7 million for 15 children’s charities in Northwest Florida. Since its founding in 2015, the Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation has donated $18 million to Northwest Florida charities, impacting the lives of more than 100,000 local children.

The 2018 check presentation, which took place in late August at the WaterColor LakeHouse, also included an additional $48,000 raised for victims of the wildfires that ravaged the Napa and Sonoma areas of California in 2017.

2018’s recipients include:

“We are grateful to the many supporters of DCWAF who have made this day possible. What cannot be overlooked is the effort that each of our supported organization has expended to help us raise the $2.7 million that was donated,” said John Russell, president of the Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation. “That is less of a gift and more of a sharing of proceeds from hard work by all, and it is an honor to play a role in their mission to help children.”

The Charity Wine Auction returns April 26-28, 2019. The foundation’s second largest fundraiser of the year, the Harvest Wine & Food Festival, returns to the Emerald Coast October 25-27, 2018. The festival, which takes place in WaterColor, Florida, showcases more than 400 wines paired with varied food offerings.
