Our Mission

Benefiting Children in Need in Northwest Florida

The mission of Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation is to connect wine enthusiasts to raise money benefiting children in need in Northwest Florida. Since our inception in 2005, we have donated more than $32 million to Northwest Florida charities by hosting world-class wine and culinary events. These funds have impacted the lives of over 100,000 youth, including those afflicted by health issues and abuse. The annual Destin Charity Wine Auction has been recognized as one of the nation’s ‘Top Charity Wine Auctions in the U.S.’ by Wine Spectator for more than a decade. 


Changing The Lives Of Children

2023 Impact

“What cannot be overstated is the impact the funds we raise have on our supported charities. They have battled through seemingly insurmountable challenges to continue to deliver their services, often at great risk to themselves, so that the children of our community would know they were not forgotten.”

—Karah Fridley-Young, DCWAF President
