Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation Charity Profile

Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation operates with the purpose of raising funds to help children in need through the programs and services provided by area children’s charities. Through events that feature world-class wine and food experiences, DCWAF brings wine enthusiasts and philanthropic-minded individuals together. During the 2011 Wine & Dine in Paradise Auction, more than $1,000,000 was raised in a single weekend to help less-fortunate or at-risk youth along the Emerald Coast. During the 2011 fiscal year, funds to help children in need were distributed in excess of $954,000. In only six years, the organization has increased its giving by more than 1000%. Between January 2006 and June 2011, Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation served the needs of 31,106 at-risk youth in the four-county service area. During the 2011 fiscal year, DCWAF’s contributions to area organizations helped 3,050 children. Geographic Location Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation (DCWAF) serves children in critical need in Bay, Walton, Okaloosa and Escambia Counties. This area, also referred to as Florida’s Emerald Coast, stretches for approximately 100 miles from Panama City to Gulf Breeze, Florida. Situated in the western part of the Florida Panhandle, these four counties encompass 4,228 square miles, and each stretch from the Gulf of Mexico north to the Alabama state line. Accessibility Each county has a bustling tourism industry and all are reliant on the physical features of their coastlines to attract visitors to the area. The primary highway transportation arteries used to access the Emerald Coast are US I-10 and US I-110. I-10 is a direct route from each of the four counties served by DCWAF to larger cities such as Tallahassee to the East, and Pensacola, Mobile and Biloxi to the West. Additionally, many major US and State Highways make the Emerald Coast easy to navigate. They include US-90, US-98, US-29 and US-331. In addition to roadway access, private and public authorities in the Florida Panhandle are devoting great amounts of money and tourism dollars to make our areas a flyer-friendly destination. Very close to home, there are three airports that deliver nonstop service to various locations along the Emerald Coast from larger cities such as Atlanta, Birmingham, New Orleans, Tampa, Orlando, Huston, Nashville, and beyond. The airports include Northwest Florida Regional Airport (VPS), Pensacola Gulf Coast Regional Airport (PNS), and Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP).
