Churchill Oaks was a beautiful setting last Tuesday night for Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation's annual check presentation ceremony. The outdoor backdrop of the Choctawhatchee Bay made for some lovely photos. Greig and Sandy Buckley, Demetrius Fuller, Cory and Hillary Fosdyck, John and Michelle Russell, Tiffanie Shelton, Jeanne Dailey, Ken Hair, Tanner and Katie Peacock, Don and Betty Hefner, Debbi and John Morris, Vickie and Ray Dollar, Jane and Greg Bahr, Zach Billingsley, Lauren Magli, Jane Soloman, Steve and Lynn Dugas, Chan and Laura Cox, Roger Hall, Lisa and Gerald Burwell, Shaye Smith, Myra Williams, and Joan Carter were some who attended and enjoyed the heavy hors d'oeuvres by Chef Tim Creehan of Cuvee Catering and wine provided by DCWAF. I positioned myself in line behind John Morris and whatever he poured, I tried to get some of the same.

I enjoyed another great meal at Travinia's bar last Wednesday night, along with Peggy and Kent Lillie, Sue and Mark Devlin, Mitzi and Harry Millsaps and John Stasko. I ordered the Sinatra Chicken, which is topped with smoked pancetta mozzarella and a light semi-sweet Grand Marnier cream sauce, and my dining companion had the veal parmesan, both of which were very good. The bar serves great upper-end wines, and its house wine — Salmon Creek — is excellent! Great evening with friends! And we saw Beverly Schmitt outside.

I saw Ladie Bea and Wayne Carlisle at The Vue on Sunday. Good to see them as I had not seen them in a while. Joe and Kathy Perry, and Greg and Beverly Schmitt enjoyed the beach.

The V Seagrove hosted an art reception Sunday for former Walton County Artist of the Year Susan Lucas. Her artwork has hung in the restaurant for several months. The V provided wine and cheese and the event was well attended. Robin and Roger Godwin, Chip and Nancy Haring, Genevieve Torrey, Claire Bannerman and John Czapleski, Mike and Sherry McCarty, Ladie Bea and Wayne Carlisle, Joan and Marty Mars, Nancie and Michael Warner, Jan and Joe Stanko, Karen and Steve Peterson, Mary and Arno Lutz, Len and Fran Ross, Karen and Maunsel White, Nina and Garrett Horn, Donnelle Clark, Miffie Hollyday and Richard Stein attended. 

Suzanne West hosted members of the Women's Art Network at her home Monday night for their monthly get together. Donnelle Clark, Karen Kolenberg, Ann Welch, Dorothy Starbuck, Sue Knight, Carol Dickson, Martha Cooper and Joan Vienot attended.

Gulf Place Homeowners Association gathered at Amore's Pizza last Thursday evening for their monthly get together. Brad and Claudia Droy, Dana Saffel, Mike and Carol Stovsky, Joe and Kathy Perry, Ralph Crossley, Mary and Joel Tidwell, Sharon Thompson, John Spencer and Christine Agnew, Bill and Cheryl Freeze, Lorene Gruzdis, Steve Bacon and Diane Smith and Ed and Donna Macdonald enjoyed.

Heidi and Jeffrey Ellis saw Adam Ant in concert in St. Petersburg.
