The Alys Foundation was established to provide funding for the purpose of sustaining the long-term community values of Alys Beach. The funds from The Alys Foundation are used to enhance the experiences of our families and to preserve and enhance the quality of life of our community members.
The Alys Foundation also sponsors three major events at Alys Beach that draw visitors from the local area and around the country. Digital Graffiti features world renowned artists projecting digital artwork upon the white canvases of our homes at Alys Beach. The 30A Wine Festival features three days of fine food and drink and has been recognized by USAToday as a top wine festival in the country. And our 5k race each year draws hundreds of runners young and old to raise money for local charities in the South Walton area.
At every turn and as we continue to grow, we keep our intentions set on bringing art into our environment. We believe in the play between the natural world and human design, and art within our town is as diverse and beautiful as the life lived amongst these homes. From local artists to names known the world over, The Foundation is committed to establishing a culture of art at Alys Beach.
We believe that in the process of finding beauty, we learn more about ourselves and about others. Our mission to serve local charities and the South Walton community was established at the outset, and through events and private, homeowner contributions, we are able to assist charities in the area each year.
