The season's Christmas parties have begun to wind down, but not before all had the opportunity to celebrate the season.

Jackie Lynch again opened her lovely Emerald Bay home to members of the Women's Art Network for their annual Christmas party. Among the 41 members attending Dec. 10 were Peggy Jones, Lois Kennedy, Betty Cork, Susan Alfieri, and Donnelle Clark.

Tim Krueger and Cory Fosdyck of Merrill Lynch held a happy hour Dec. 13 at The Vue to introduce Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation's John Russell and its mission. Meg Warrington, Candace Abuvala, Lisa Hinds, and Betty Krika attended.

Also that night, Marie's Bistro hosted its first wine dinner with representatives from Oyster Bay winery. Ladie Bea and Wayne Carlisle, Tom Saffel, Martha and Tom Casey were some who enjoyed the champagne reception, lobster and crawfish bisque, Mediterranean salad, lamb, blackened yellowfin tuna, and assorted desserts. The affair was lots of fun and delish.

Kent and Peggy Lillie attended the Friends of Eden's annual Christmas potluck dinner Dec. 13, as did Brenda Radtke, Barbara and Willis Young, Paul and Bett Appel.

On Dec. 14 Santa Rosa Beach Club women held their ladies' Christmas luncheon at The Vue. Jeanette Miller and Connie Yarbro enjoyed the event which included a fashion show presented by Ava's Attic.

Prior to Sinfonia's Christmas on Broadway concert last Friday night at Destiny Worship Center, Sandy and Greig Buckley, Marinella and Robert Monk, and John Stasko met at Tommy Bahama's for dinner.
