Through this Destin Commons mall fundraiser, “Coins for a Cause,”  area restaurants and barbecue aficionados will fire up their grills to prepare their best dishes, each hoping to win up to $15,000 for this “cause.” You can join in this popular, fun event and feel good about it, too!

Starting at 5 p.m. family entertainment and live music will kick off the day. At 5:30 p.m. “barbecue taste-testers” (that’s you) can enjoy $1 samples and vote for your favorite “People’s Choice” winners and celebrity judges will award Judge’s Pick winners. More than $85,000 in donations will benefit local charities.
