30A-opoly to raise money to benefit The Tree House Episcopal Montessori School

“We were just happy to do this … We believe in this,” said Uhlfelder, whose son attends Tree House. “The parents have made this happen.”

With limited board space, sponsors were jockeying to fill the spots, which could have been sold many times over.

“We couldn’t fit all of 30A. We did have to honor businesses of parents of the school, members of the church, and people who had donated money before,” said Torrey.

It took only 24 hours, once the sponsorship opportunity was open, to raise the $20,000 needed to offset the manufacturing costs.

Sponsors for “The Coastal Property Trading Game for 30A” are all local, from Café Thirty-A to Sunshine Shuttle. The play money is sponsored by Regions Bank, the CEO of which owns a house along 30A.

Local graphic designer Kevin Boyles helped mould the board into something decidedly 30A. 

“All these little pieces — no pun intended — have come together for us,” said Torrey.
