A huge gathering of participants from along the Gulf Coast came out in force to have fun and support Children in Crisis at the recent Fourth Annual Destin Beer Festival. The festival was held at Paradise Key Shopping Complex adjacent to Wine World who sponsored the event. This year's festival almost doubled last years' funds by raising $10,000. All proceeds were donated to CIC to help feed, clothe and provide a home for the children at the CIC Children’s Neighborhood.

According to festival sponsor, Chan Cox, “The event was a total success and the participants had a great time. We’re very glad to help Children in Crisis and the at-risk children of our community.”

“CIC sends a big thanks to the major sponsor, Wine World, and all the many other sponsors, vendors, volunteers and participants,” Ken Hair, president/CEO, Children in Crisis, said. “This donation goes a long way in providing a home to local children in our community. Together, we have made a difference in the life of a child.”
