SETCO is once again proud to be a platinum sponsor and supporter of the Destin Charity Wine Auction. The Auction, which benefits children’s charities in Northwest Florida, donated over 2.3 million in 2015 and plans on surpassing this number in 2016!
Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation’s mission is to connect wine enthusiasts to raise money to benefit children in need in Northwest Florida. Founded in 2005, DCWAF has donated more than $10 million to Northwest Florida charities through hosting world class wine and culinary events. These funds have impacted the lives of over 60,000 youth, including those afflicted by health issues and abuse. The funds raised are distributed to 14 local non-profit organizations for specific projects and programs that benefit children.

At the Destin Charity Wine Auction in Florida, which raises money for 14 local children’s charities, large-format bottles helped boost earnings to new records. The top wine-only lot was a collection of 39 autographed magnums, which sold for $45,000.
“We are thrilled with the results of our auction,” said John Russell, president of the Auction Foundation. ”This was the first time we exceeded $2 million in live revenue.”
