The Hive and AJ’s announce new event coming to area to support DCBA

They get it.... being a hunting and fishing widow takes patience. It comes with weekends spent alone while he is in a tree stand, on a boat or dressed in camo crouching in a field. There’s tangled fishing tackle on the kitchen counter, decor that leaves something to be desired and countless meals that revolve around his latest kill. Ladies, it is your turn.  

The Hive Creative Consulting and AJ’s have teamed up to bring together the ladies left behind, for fishing and hunting trips, together to enjoy an afternoon of camaraderie, games, and other fun!

“[Rachael Green of AJ’s, Ali Weil of The Hive Creative Consulting and I] were venting about how our husbands couldn't get out of a tree stand. We said we needed to find an activity that justified so much time away from daily life for ourselves,” said Erin Bakker, co-owner of The Hive Creative Consulting. “The idea was thrown out to start a “club,” and right then and there, Hunting & Fishing Widows Society was born.”

The Hunting and Fishing Widows’ Society’s launch party is set for June 22 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at AJ’s on the Destin Harbor. The 35-dollar ticket includes admission, lunch, a rose-tasting experience and a swag bag.  

A portion of the proceeds from the event will go to Destin Charter Boat Association (DCBA), an organization founded in 1954 by local charter captains to work together to promote their "fishing village" and their businesses.

“DCBA relies on the support of this community,” said Jim Green, President of the DCBA. “And, this event will really help us be able to expand the work we do.”

Details of this event are quickly coming together, and sponsorships are still available for local businesses that want to support this new club and market to local women. Attendees can expect live music, a photo booth, cocktails, a “Catch a Card” gift card fishing game and more.

There is no membership fee to be a part of the Hunting and Fishing Widows Society, just purchase a ticket online to attend events that will occur quarterly. All women are welcome to join in on the fun!
