Get ready to let the good times roll at the Rotary Club of Destin’s 12th Annual Cajun Crawfish Bash! The charity fundraiser returns this year to The Towne Centre at Seascape with co-host, Mezcal Mexican Grill on Friday, May 17 from 5:30 until 9 p.m. and is designed to help further educate and eradicate hunger by supporting the Destin Rotary Club Scholarship Fund and local families in need. Since 1979, The Rotary Club of Destin has served our community through charitable, educational and humanitarian projects.

Club President, Christian Carlee stated “The open-air venue at The Towne Centre at Seascape provides a spacious outdoor event plaza ideal to capture the famous Louisiana expression, Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler. Destin Rotarians are totally engaged in this fundraiser to help local charities whose initiatives are a match for the club’s mission of eradicating hunger and educational outreach. In addition, this event will support the Destin Rotary Scholarship Fund to provide financial assistance to deserving high school graduates who are attending colleges and universities throughout the country.”

The Rotary Club of Destin is known for serving up the best Cajun crawfish, libations and live music. Back by popular demand is Fais Do-Do Band performing its unique genre of zydeco music. Integrating a blend of R&B, soul, brass band, reggae, hip hop, ska, rock and Afro-Caribbean, attendees are guaranteed to be dancing!

Attendees can also enter an incredible raffle drawing and/or participate in a silent auction for themed packages, and a bourbon pull — all to help fund the growing needs of the club’s charitable causes and make a difference in our community.

Suitable for families of all ages and open to the public, Destin Rotary volunteers will dish up fresh crawfish from Louisiana with the traditional potatoes, sausage and corn on the cob. For those who don’t crave crawfish, there will also be grilled hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken prepared fresh on-site.
