The Destin Woman's Club logo

The most important effort of the Destin Woman's Club is fundraising. The Glitz & Glamour Fashion Show has been our capstone event for several years. The proceeds from these events have been donated to support Food for Thought Outreach, Fisher House of the Emerald Coast, Inc., Harvest House, and the Destin Woman's Club Family Assistance Fund. 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 2024 Glitz & Glamour Fashion Show and Luncheon will be held on Friday, November 8 at the Marina Cafe in Destin. Details will be provided at a later date.
