On Friday, Dec. 6, Café Thirty-A hosts their annual Christmas Charity Ball benefiting Caring and Sharing of South Walton.
From 7 to 11 PM, the restaurant will be transformed with festive holiday décor. Attendees will be greeted upon arrival with a glass of champagne and enjoy heavy passed hors d’oeuvres, a dinner buffet, and a cash bar. There will be music by DJ 30A and a commemorative photo booth provided by Epic Photo Co. with holiday-themed props and costumes.
Guests are encouraged to dress in evening attire or black tie optional.
The event will boast a large silent auction and raffle 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. Last year, the annual Christmas Charity Ball raised over $26,000 through ticket sales, donations, raffle tickets, and auction sales.
“This is a tradition I look forward to every year,” says Café Thirty-A owner Harriet Crommelin. “Not only does everyone get to gather in one place before the holidays, but for a worthy cause. Caring and Sharing of South Walton is a charity that is near and dear to my heart, and I am excited to continue raising money for such a great organization.”
General admission tickets are $75 per person. Area businesses interested in sponsorship or silent auction donation are encouraged to email Jessica at Jessica@proffittpr.com.
