The Destin Woman's Club is a
diverse group of women brought together by our desire to
meet new people, participate in fun activities and our
shared sense of commitment to helping others.
Our goals are simple...enjoy each others company while
finding ways to support the needs of a growing community.
We support the community in several ways including a
perpetuating Scholarship Fund at Northwest Florida State College
for qualifying women who strive to re-enter today’s
competitive workforce; the Destin Woman's Club Assistance Fund which offers
assistance to area families in need; provide support to a
local charities; and the Fisher House, 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. Come join this dynamic group of women today!

Retired Colonel Patricia Blassie Speaks to the DWC
Retired Colonel Patricia Blassie gave a moving account of her hero brother 1st Lt. Michael Blassie's life and death during the Vietnam War.
She went into depth about how he was placed in the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the area designated for the Air Force, how the family came to know it was him, and how they eventually brought his remains home and laid him to rest.
What an amazing story and family. Thank you so very much Ret. Colonel Blassie for sharing your family's story with us.
