Digital Graffiti 2017 Winners Announced

The 10th annual Digital Graffiti Festival at Alys Beach came to the finale on Sunday, May 21, 2017, and announced “Liquid Love” by Kameron Neal of Brooklyn, NY, as “Best of Show” (click over to our Instagram for the video). The projection art festival sponsored by Christie welcomed artists from around the world to Northwest Florida’s Scenic Highway 30A in South Walton County to showcase original digital artwork on the stark white walls of Alys Beach’s homes.

“Digital Graffiti is a surreal opportunity for artists to use their voices and experiences to challenge the pure white architecture of Alys Beach,” Neal says. “I’m honored to have participated in its 10th year and hope that Digital Graffiti can continue to foster artists’ growth for many more.”

THE ALYS FOUNDATION ‘FUN RUN’ RAISES $60,000 FOR AUTISM

Proceeds to benefit local, state and national autism organizations

5k 2014 Results

Ready, set, help! More than 400 runners of all ages raced to the end of summer at the third annual Alys Beach 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run.

The annual event is sponsored by The Alys Foundation, which also produces the 30A Wine Festival (March 6-8, 2015) and Digital Graffiti (June 4-6, 2015).

The 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run became town tours of sorts leading runners down roadways, pathways and nature trails on a sunny late summer morning throughout the beautiful community of Alys Beach in South Walton.

After the races, racers relaxed at a post-race awards party featuring Grayton Beer, Vivo Spa Salon, Piper’s and 30A Pop Stop including a raffle and music by Shane from Rock the House. Little racers cooled off in the Fountain and chilled on the grass in the Amphitheater. Many returned later in the evening to enjoy a live concert and fireworks display.

This year’s race was held in honor of Jon Starkey, who is the son of an Alys Beach homeowner, who has autism. Starkey, 40, designed the artwork showcased on the official race t-shirts.

This event was made possible for The Alys Foundation with generous support from all our sponsors; including, EBSCO Industries, Inc., Comer Companies, LLC, the Starkey Family, the Frist Family and Galvas Construction, Inc.

Proceeds from the event raised $60,000. The Alys Foundation provided $20,000 each in the name of the Starkey Family to Autism Society Emerald Coast, Autism Society Georgia and Autism Society of America, the nation’s leading grassroots autism organization.

“It is such a privilege and an honor to be a part of something special where so many people are pulling together for a common cause. A very deep thank you to everyone who made it possible,” said Jason L. Comer, Director of The Alys Foundation.
