The Coins For A Cause initiative at Destin Commons recently donated $592.25 to the Destin Chamber’s Destin Forward 2017-2018 Class Project, the beautification of the Mattie Kelly Arts Center Cultural Village.

Learning from experts in many different fields, Destin Forward is a program by the Destin Chamber of Commerce designed to provide a hands-on learning experience for up to 25 business professionals in their annual nine-month class from August to May. Each year, the Destin Forward class is tasked with coming up with a community project to raise funds for and implement before graduation.
