The Taylor Haugen Foundation will hold their seventh annual Savor The Season fundraiser on Thursday, November 3, 2016. This culinary experience has grown to become one of the most popular events on 30A and benefits the foundation’s efforts to make sports safer for middle- and high-school-aged athletes. Situated around the Caliza Pool at Alys Beach, Savor The Season features twelve of the area’s finest chefs who showcase their culinary talents with signature dishes. Each signature dish is paired with a fine wine or craft beer. The evening culminates with an exciting live auction and entertainment provided by national recording artist Michael J. Thomas. Our new 30A Wines will also be featured at the event. The participating restaurants include Seagar’s Prime Steaks & Seafood, Caliza Restaurant, Restaurant Paradis, Nola Boiling Company, Bake My Day Destin, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, CHL Signature Catering of 30A, Culinary Catering 365, Stinky’s Fish Camp, and George’s at Alys Beach. The Taylor Haugen Foundation was created to honor the memory of the 15-year-old Niceville High School student who passed away after an injury sustained during a football game on August 30, 2008. Proceeds from Savor The Season help support the Taylor Haugen Foundation’s YESS (Youth Equipment for Sports Safety) Program. The primary goal of the YESS Program is to reduce the number of sports-related abdominal injuries in middle and high school athletes. Working directly with school administrators, the THF Board of Directors actively participate in a variety of meetings and activities to present the benefits of wearing sports safety equipment. Through collaboration with vendors, the YESS program provides interested middle and high school athletic teams with matching grants to purchase state -of-the-art safety equipment. Tickets for the event are $75 per person in advance and be purchased online at www.thfsavortheseason.org.

We have such a special community here, you often get the chance to meet someone on Scenic Highway 30-A who really makes you think. Cory Davis of 30A Radio had that opportunity recently when he got a chance a sit down with Chris Cumby, a Canadian-native-turned-30A-local and author of “The Success Playbook,” a book on discovering yourself and finding success, which is hitting shelves soon. Chris has a creative perspective on what you need to be successful in life, business and even here in South Walton. His knowledge ranges from the best food and beverage spots in South Walton to the benefits of finding a mentor (just wait until you hear who his is). This interview was prerecorded live at the 30A Radio Airstream at Gulf Place in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla. Special thanks to 30A Cottages & Concierge, Stinky’s Fish Camp and Coastal Insurance.
