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, with all proceeds benefiting Caring and Sharing of South Walton’s efforts to provide food and financial assistance to local area families and individuals in need. In 2022, the annual Christmas Charity Ball raised a record-breaking $50,000 through ticket sales, donations, raffle tickets, and auction sales. For area businesses interested in silent auction donation, please contact Jessica Bracken at Café Thirty-A, 30A, Christmas, Holiday Party, Charity Ball, Caring and Sharing, South Walton, Fundraiser

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. Those interested in sponsoring the 2023 event, please email

Tickets are on sale for $150 in advance or $175 at the door, with one hundred percent of the 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.
