A huge gathering of participants from along the Gulf Coast came out in force to have fun and support Children in Crisis (CIC) at the recent Destin Crafted Beer Festival. The festival was held at The Henderson Beach Resort & Spa and sponsored by Chan’s Wine World. Thanks to a lot of hard work from the committee, sponsors, and participants, this year's festival far exceeded last year. All proceeds were donated to CIC to help feed, clothe, and provide a home for the children at the CIC Children’s Neighborhood.
Ken Hair, CIC President and CEO, commented, “CIC sends a big thanks to the major sponsors, Chan’s Wine World, The Henderson Beach Resort & Spa, and all the many other sponsors, vendors, volunteers and participants. 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!”
