  • Thank you, DCWAF!!

    We are so grateful to be a beneficiary of the annual Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation Auction! The DCWAF was able to raise $1.2MM in total this years virtual auction, to benefit 16 Children's Charities in Northwest Florida!

    Food For Thought will be able to use the $85K received to help fund and continue our curbside services in Okaloosa and Walton Counties. Since the onset of Covid-19, we have continued to serve our community to fight hunger without a break in services and are dedicated to continuing to serve as we know food insecurity is on the rise.

  • Updates for the 15th Annual Destin Charity Wine Auction

    The team at the Destin Charity Wine Auction has been working hard to revamp this event in order to accommodate the current social distancing guidelines to still be able to hold this annual fundraising event.  

    This event, originally scheduled for the end of April, will now take place August 21 and 22.  The patron dinners will still take place at various locations throughout the Emerald Coast, but the auction will now be held at 5 different locations (still live) in order to not have one large gathering. 

    Please visit the DCWAF website in order to learn more about how the event will take place this year, and to purchase tickets:

  • DCWAF Event Postponed Until August - 2020

    Due to the COVID-19 situation, the DCWAF has postponed the event until August, 2020.  Please see below for their statement, and visit www.dcwaf.org for additional updates:

    Destin Charity Wine Auction is rescheduled for August 21st & 22nd, 2020.

    It is not an overstatement to say the funds raised from our efforts are critical to the 16 charitable organizations we support. Every decision we make is filtered through the lens of what is in their best interest. It is with that mission in mind that we determined our best course of action is to reschedule our 2020 auction weekend. In addition to the belief that the auction will likely be more successful later in the year, we think it would be irresponsible to ask hundreds of people from all over the world to gather in close proximity during a worldwide pandemic.

    We recognize that there are many new priorities in the lives of all of our supporters as a result of covid-19. Your participation in our auction weekend is more critical than ever and we hope you are able to join us this August to raise our glasses and our paddles high to help the children of Northwest Florida.
