The most important efforts of the Destin Woman's Club go towards fundraising. The Mistletoe Ball was our initial fundraising event. Today's efforts have evolved into several events per year. The proceeds from these events have been donated to support: Destin Elementary, Destin Library, Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center, Shelter House, Sacred Heart Hospital of the Emerald Coast, Inc., the YMCA, and Sacred Heart Women's Diagnostic and Wellness Center and Birthing Center, Children in Crisis, Inc., Destin Fisherman's Fund, Caring & Sharing of South Walton, Inc., Destin Woman's Club Assistance Fund, and Fisher House of the Emerald Coast, Inc. Additionally, we support a self perpetuating scholarship fund at Northwest Florida State College for qualifying local women who strive to re-enter today's competitive workforce.

The Destin Woman's Club Presents "Dive Into Emerald Coast Fashions" Fashion Show & Luncheon

The Destin Woman's Club held its Annual Fashion Show on Friday, November 8th. The luncheon/fashion show is the largest fundraiser the Destin Woman's Club does each year and this year was phenomenal. The Louisiana Lagniappe, with its beautiful view of the harbor was yet again the perfect backdrop for this festive event. The tables were adorned with oversized Martini Glasses accessorized with mermaids diving into the sand and sea. The ever-popular Wine and Night On The Town Cart as well as the Silent Auction Tables quickly became busy with guests buying tickets and placing bids. Once again, local Artist Cindi Eastman, painted and donated a piece of her artwork that was used in all DWC advertising pieces as well as guests could purchase the replicated piece to enjoy in their own homes.

Current and past non-profits recipients of DWC fundraising participated in this year's event as models. Volunteers from Fisher House on the Emerald Coast, Children In Crisis, Sacred Heart of The Emerald Coast, Children's Volunteer Health Network, Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation, and Feline Friends of Destin along with community representatives modeled fashions available from SOHO, Kiki Risa, Boca, Chico's, Brooks Brothers, Stein Mart and Jos. A Bank. The crowd came alive as each model took the runway with the amazing fashions while dancing to the festive sounds provided by local entertainer, Chuck Lawson.

The monies raised from the "Dive Into The Emerald Coast Fashions" fashion show will go to the Fisher House of the Emerald Coast and the Destin Woman's Club Assistance Fund, which serves to aid and assist the needy in our area. This fund seeks to fill the gap between public assistance and self-sufficiency and strives to help in such a way that those in need may further help themselves.

This event could not take place without the generous support of the clubs many sponsors such as Destin Center for Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, Coastal Skin Surgery and Dermatology, Bancorp, Southern Style Studio and More, and Krueger, Fosdyck & Associates – Merrill Lynch.
