To raise monetary help for a local charity, Café Thirty-A recently held its annual Café Thirty-A Christmas Soirée on Dec. 1. All proceeds from the event were donated to Caring and Sharing of South Walton, an organization that provides food and financial assistance to area families and individuals in need.

Guests were invited to come delight in beautiful holiday décor and dress up for the event. In addition to a buffet and passed heavy hors d’oeuvres, a champagne toast at entry, and music by DJ 30A, guests were invited to commemorate the evening with Epic Photo Co.’s photo booth.

Tickets were $75 per person and were available online or at the door. Through their ticket sales, a large silent auction, raffle, and donations, the Café Thirty-A Christmas Soirée raised $22,127 for Caring and Sharing of South Walton.

“I could not be more elated with the turnout to this year’s event,” said owner Harriet Crommelin. “To see the community support grow each year for Caring and Sharing of South Walton is completely heart-warming. We hope we can make this event even bigger and better every year.”
