SEAGROVE BEACH, Fla. — Café Thirty-A is hosting its annual Christmas Charity Ball on Saturday, December 2, 2023, with proceeds benefiting Caring and Sharing of South Walton.
The annual event promises an unforgettable evening, combining exquisite culinary delights, goodwill, and philanthropy.
From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., Café Thirty-A will be transformed into a festive holiday wonderland. Upon arrival, guests will be greeted with complimentary valet parking, sponsored by Centennial Bank, and a glass of champagne, courtesy of Corcoran Reverie.
Inside, Café Thirty-A’s culinary team will be serving a plethora of hors d’oeuvres, including hand-rolled sushi, a dinner buffet featuring signature dishes, and a dessert spread sponsored by Coastal Insurance.
There will also be a cash bar sponsored by Coastal Luxury Real Estate, a DJ sponsored by 30A Luxury Vacations, and a commemorative Epic Photo Co. photo booth sponsored by A BOHEME Design.
Guests are encouraged to dress in evening attire, black tie optional.
This will be the first Christmas Charity Ball since Café Thirty-A’s longtime owner, Harriett Crommelin, passed away earlier this year.
“Harriett looked forward to this event, year after year,” said Jackie Maliszewski, co-owner of Café Thirty-A.
“She loved bringing together her friends, longtime patrons, and community members for a festive evening benefiting our local community. She was always passionate about giving back and we’re proud to continue hosting one of her most treasured events.”
The evening will boast a large silent auction featuring items from various local businesses, as well as a generous raffle package.
In 2022, the annual Christmas Charity Ball raised a record-breaking $50,000 through ticket sales, donations, raffle tickets, and auction sales.
Tickets are on sale for $150 in advance or $175 at the door, with all ticket sales and auction proceeds benefiting Caring and Sharing of South Walton. These funds will go directly to providing neighbors in need with access to food, financial assistance, counseling, case management, and connection to other community resources.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.cafethirtya.com.
Café Thirty-A would also like to thank the additional local businesses and individuals for sponsoring this year’s event, including All Access Coach Leasing and Bert Summerville: Scenic Sotheby’s International Realty.
