“After the frenzy of Spring Break, locals always work very hard to prepare for a busy and successful summer season,” said 30A’s Mike Ragsdale. “Every year, our Locals Last Stand party gives us one last chance to all come together to celebrate before our summer guests arrive in full force.”

This year’s free party will feature performances by Zack Rosicka, The Owsley Brothers and Geoff McBride. The 2015 event will be held at Watersound Origins.

This May, Casey Tindell-Trejo and Colleen Duffley will fly to the Eastern Republic of the Congo to run seven marathons in seven days. The women, who both live in the 30A area, are taking the challenge to raise money for On the Ground’s Project Congo.

Tindell-Trejo sat down to talk with 30A Radio about the cause that inspired her — the organization raises funds for the inspiring female coffee farmers, farming families and cooperatives working toward gender equality in the region.

“I want my daughter to know that women can do anything,” she said.

Hear about how the local 25-year-old is preparing for the race, how Amavida Coffee & Tea, where she works, is supporting her efforts, and her family’s over 60-year history in Seagrove.

Wine Spectator magazine has named the 2014 Destin Charity Wine Auction the fourth highest-grossing charity wine auction in the United States.

In the ten years since the Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation began, they have donated more than $8 million to support children in need in Northwest Florida. Last year’s auction donated over $2 million to 12 area charities, a 57 percent increase over 2013’s total.

The 2014 Destin auction ranked just behind the Sonoma Harvest Wine Auction, Naples Winter Wine Festival and Auction Napa Valley, meaning the auction has helped put Northwest Florida on the national map of prestigious locales for wine festivals.

Jesse Davis has been in the water on some sort of board for almost as long as he can remember.

“I caught my first wave in third grade. Today is my thirtieth birthday and I have, literally, been doing this ever since,” said Davis, who grew up in Northwest Florida. Besides surfing all over the place, Davis spent years traveling the country as a professional skim boarder.

Recently he made his way home to Northwest Florida where he has set up shop on 30A to share his adventurous water-bound spirit with others. Last month, he and his business partner, Charles Kolopanas, started 30A Adventures, which offers surf and skim boarding lessons, paddle-board tours, kayak and bike rentals, custom skateboards and more.
