No matter how tacky, itchy, and overly festive some may think Christmas sweaters are, most of us want to celebrate every inch of green, red, and jingley bells. So deck the halls, don your gay apparel, and get ready to jingle around the clock because Amavida Coffee is celebrating their loyal customers with their Ugly Christmas Sweater Party & Silent Auction starting at 6 p.m. on December 4.

Guests will enjoy complimentary small bites from Sun Moon & Spoon food company, live music with Gileah Taylor, and free wine and beer.

With a sleigh full of Silent Auction items and special guests Mr. & Mrs. Claus, it is sure to be a jolly good time.

Score a raffle ticket with each $20 in-store cash donation to Project Congo from November 1 to December 4. Raffle tickets are available at Amavida Coffee – Seaside, Rosemary & St. Andrews.

One ticket will be drawn on December 4 and the lucky elf will leave with half of the total Cash For A Claus donation money.

Donations & Silent Auction proceeds will benefit On The Ground’s Project Congo, an initiative that empowers women in farming communities of the Democratic Republic of Congo through programs that create access to knowledge, land, income and health care, enabling them to run their own lives and businesses.

This event supports the fundraising goals of 2015 Winter Solstice Runners who will run 10, 20 and 40 mile distances across Scenic Highway 30A on Saturday, December 19.
