Monday, July 3, 2017, have a fun-filled evening prior to the Fourth of July holiday at the 7th Annual Smoke on the Coast BBQ and Fireworks Festival. Destin Commons' annual event has a unique twist this year. Sixteen area charities, including our own Emerald Coast Children's Advocacy Center, will be benefitting from the Center's event via their Coins For A Cause program. Coins For A Cause benefits local charities with the monies collected from the Center's parking meters. This is a win-win with shoppers who can enjoy the convenience of parking right in front of the stores, while local charities enjoy the benefit of donations made to their respective causes related to issues such as health, disabilities, education, the arts and children's well-being.
