35D: Raise Your Paddle to Save a Life!

Item #: 35
This lot benefits: Pathways for Change

An annual tradition at the Destin Charity Wine Auction is to honor the memory of our founder’s son Clinton Cox with our paddle raise. The Clinton Cox Memorial Fund was established by Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation to support Pathways for Change (PFC). The mission of this fund is to save the lives of young people plagued with substance abuse. This faith-based addiction treatment program has a 70% success rate; an accomplishment that would not be possible without your support through the Destin Charity Wine Auction paddle raise.

DCWAF is proud to be a part of the success of people like Jonathan, who like so many of the men and women that find their way to Pathways for Change, spent his childhood moving from foster family to foster home, a total of five times in his young life before being consumed by addiction. After nine months in the PFC program, Jonathan was required to start working and landed a job as a certified electrician at $19/hour. That same day, he took his GED exam with such high scores that Pensacola State College offered him funding to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Construction Management. Jonathan’s experience and education with PFC allowed him to choose a path toward long term success and the ability to give his children a life he never was able to experience.

Many of the individuals supported by this fund are parents, and this fund provides the treatment needed to keep families together. After successfully completing the PFC program, one graduate’s six year old son, when asked if he was excited for his Thanksgiving dinner, replied, “No! I’m excited to see my daddy!” PFC works constantly to ensure that the children in our community have healthy, present parents in their lives.

Since 2007, Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation has gifted this organization over $1.4 million. Please consider joining us as we raise our paddle to save a life! Top paddle raisers will receive a special bottle of wine at the auction with their donation.
