33rd Annual Sandestin Wine Festival donates $22,500 to local Fisher House
The 33rd Annual Sandestin Wine Festival, the most established and continuously running wine festival in the Florida Panhandle, announced today the organization donated $22,500 to Fisher House of the Emerald Coast. The proceeds are from the four-day event, held April 11th -14th, 2019 in The Village of Baytowne Wharf within Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. The Sandestin Wine Festival is staffed by non-profit volunteers and in return, the proceeds from the festival are donated to those non-profits to support and further their missions. Due to the overwhelming support of their
volunteers, Fisher House of the Emerald Coast, Inc was presented with a check totaling $22,500, made possible by the success of this year’s festival and sold out Grand Tasting events on Friday and Saturday. “Without the support of our community and volunteers, the Sandestin Wine Festival would not be the success that it is today. For an event that is rich in history and culture, the volunteers work very hard to make sure the guest experience is seamless from one year to the next. It’s amazing to know the event benefits worthwhile local non-profits. We look forward to the continued partnership for many years to come,” stated Alan Meyers, The Village of Baytowne Wharf executive director.
The 34th Annual Sandestin Wine Festival is set for April 16th -19th, 2020. Chief sponsors of the Sandestin Wine Festival include Coastal Living, ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, Visit South Walton, 30A, EC Magazine, 850 Magazine, and SoWal.
