Just in time for Christmas, South Walton’s first-ever property trading game will be for sale at shops up and down Scenic 30A.

Stores from Dune Allen to Rosemary Beach will carry 30A-opoly starting Dec. 19 and they are now taking pre-orders for the game, which is a fundraiser for The Tree House Episcopal Montessori School.

Much of 30A is represented on the board, so locals and visitors can play to “own” a part of their favorite spot, “eat” at a favorite restaurant, and “shop” at a beloved boutique.

One of the sponsors who immediately stepped up was Stinky’s Fish Camp owner Jim Richard, who said it was a no-brainer to get on board as both a buyable property space and a retailer of 30A-opoly, which will be for sale in the restaurant’s Bait Shop.

“Stinky’s does its best to support our local community,” said Richard. “Of course the fun side of it is we actually get to have a cool game board that goes along with the project.”

The much-anticipated game came about as a grassroots effort by the Tree House parents, who were looking for a unique way to raise money for the school.

With the outpouring of support from community members and businesses, mothers Genevieve Torrey, Michelle Uhlfelder, Candace Price and Gigi Brantley were able to fill the board with sponsors in less than 24 hours.
