2017 Smoke on the Coast BBQ & Fireworks Festival
Date: July 3, 2017
Destin Commons recently announced they will be partnering with 16 area charities for their upcoming 7th Annual Smoke on the Coast BBQ & Fireworks event on July 3. These charities will be teaming up with various restaurants and BBQ aficionados to fire up their grills, with each team preparing their BBQ inspired specialty. Then attendees sample mouth-watering BBQ dishes hot off the grills and cast their votes for the coveted People’s Choice title. Celebrity judges will also award Judge’s Pick winners of a blind taste test.
The 16 non-profit organizations, along with their BBQ teams, will be:
Air Force Enlisted Village/The Gulf Seafood Restaurant
Arc of the Emerald Coast/Highway 98 BBQ
Boys & Girls Club of the Emerald Coast/Big Red Truck

“We are excited about the addition of so many charities involved this year,” commented Destin Commons marketing manager, Heather Ruiz. “Just by participating, each charity will automatically receive $2,500. This will truly be a charitable event with the potential of donating up to a total of $80,000 to these non-profits through our Coins For A Cause program and the proceeds of Smoke on the Coast.”
