Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation
Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation’s (DCWAF) mission is to connect wine enthusiasts to raise money to benefit children in need in Northwest Florida.
Founded in 2005, DCWAF has donated more than $15 million to Northwest Florida charities through hosting world class wine and culinary events. These funds have impacted the lives of over 90,000 youth, including those afflicted by health issues and abuse. DCWAF is ranked number 3 as one of the nation’s ‘Top Charity Wine Auction in the U.S.’ by Wine Spectator Magazine.
“We are ecstatic about our ranking as the number three ‘Top Charity Wine Auction in the US’ by Wine Spectator Magazine,” said Destin Charity Wine Auction President, John Russell. “This incredible recognition is a true testament to the impact we hope to continue to have on the children in our community. When we can tell their stories to people, they raise their paddles. That’s why it’s so amazing to do this and see the growth each year. We are beyond grateful for the support we have received from our local community and our friends in the wine industry.”
