Gary Feduccia, a long-time employee of Bass Pro Shops in Destin Commons as their promotions manager, passed away earlier this month. In honor and memory of Feduccia, Destin Commons donated $1,000 to Toys For Tots through the center’s Coins For A Cause charitable program.

“He was very community minded. He loved what he did and it showed,” said Destin Commons General Manager Bob Perry. “Only last month, Gary was our energetic emcee for the Santa Claus arrival parade. He did this annually for us. It is only fitting that Destin Commons make the Toys For Tots donation for Gary and his wonderful spirit of giving.”

Last week, Destin Commons and Bass Pro staff joined Feduccia’s wife and son, Janet and Joseph, to officially donate the $1,000 to Toys For Tots in Feduccia’s name.

Coins For A Cause is Destin Commons’ parking meter program where the coins put in the meters goes back to benefit area charities. To date, more than $1 million has been given back to the community. For additional information, visit DestinCommons.com, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
