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 Mary Kirkpatrick Charitable
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
House of the Emerald Coast, Inc.
The Destin Woman's Club continues their support of the Fisher House on the Emerald
Coast, Inc. Since 2007, the DWC has raised
over $15,000.00 in proceeds for the Fisher
House of the Emerald Coast, Inc., which provides housing facilities for injured soldiers and their family while they are going through the rehabilitation process. This is a non-profit organization and not funded by the military. Visit
Mary Kilpatrick Charitable Fund
Our helping hand does not end here. The Destin Woman's
Club also has a Mary Kirkpatrick Charitable Fund, which tries to
help fill the gap between public assistance and self
sufficiency. We strive to give help in such a way that
those in need may further help themselves.
The Charitable Fund, formally known as the Mary Kirkpatrick Charitable Fund, 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.
