Café Thirty-A, located at 3899 East County Hwy 30A, will host its annual Christmas Charity Ball benefiting Caring and Sharing of South Walton on Friday, December 2, 2022.
From 6- 10 p.m., the restaurant will be transformed with festive holiday décor for the annual evening event. Attendees will be greeted upon arrival with complimentary valet sponsored by Corcoran Reverie along with a glass of champagne. Inside, they’ll enjoy passed heavy hors d’oeuvres, a dinner buffet, and a cash bar sponsored by Foundation Title and Escrow Series, LLC. There will be music by DJ Wub Control sponsored by Centennial Bank, along with a commemorative Epic Photo Co. photo booth sponsored by McNeese Title Company. Guests are encouraged to dress in evening attire, black tie optional.
The event will boast a large silent auction featuring items from various local businesses, as well as a generous raffle package from Hotel Effie, with all proceeds benefiting Caring and Sharing of South Walton’s efforts to provide food and financial assistance to local area families and individuals in need. In 2021, the annual Christmas Charity Ball raised over $35,000 through ticket sales, donations, raffle tickets, and auction sales. For area businesses interested in silent auction donation, please contact Jessica Bracken at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We look forward to this event every year and we know a lot of our regular customers and loyal patrons do too,” said Café Thirty-A owner, Harriet Crommelin. “We invite everyone to join us to kick off the holiday season and give back to those who need it most in our local community. The holidays can be tough for a lot of people so we hope this event will bring relief to a lot of those families.”
Ticket prices will be $125 per person with one hundred percent of the ticket sales and auction proceeds benefiting Caring and Sharing of South Walton. Funds raised from ticket sales will go directly to providing neighbors in need with access to food, financial assistance, mental health counseling, case management, and connection to other community resources.
