UMA Fundraiser


Dine + Dive Fundraiser

Join us in Grand Boulevard Town Center on Wednesday, May 1 from 6 - 9 p.m. for Dine + Dive, a fine art, food and wine event igniting all of the senses to benefit the nation’s first Underwater Museum of Art (UMA).  The CAA and South Walton Artificial Reef Association (SWARA) are pleased to expand the former Under the Sea event to feature over a dozen restaurant tasting stations, more than 50 incredible wines to sample, the Art Month Silent Auction, and incredible continuous live music with opener Boukou Groove followed by headliner Cousin Curtiss, a 30A Songwriters Festival favorite!


We are excited to offer guests the opportunity to view several of the UMA sculptures before they head to their permanent underwater home, mingle with the artists, sample more than 50 wines from around the world from the Martinelli Family Winery and Sonoma County Vintners Association, as well as taste featured items from popular area restaurants and celebrated Chefs including Bijoux, Cantina Laredo, Cinders and SaltThe Citizen at Alys Beach, Down Island, Grayton Beach Catering, Great Southern CafeMarrow ChefsMozey's Mobile Cuisine, Red Fish TacoRoux 30A, Stinky's Fish Camp, Surfing Deer, and Swiftly Catered.


Cousin Curtiss brings to the stage a fiery dynamic rarely seen by a solo act and now partnered up with the equally enigmatic and soulfully driven electric guitar prowess of Harrison B, these two road warriors are on a mission to electrify audiences everywhere with their two-man full-band sound. Think, "blues at bluegrass speeds." Imagine, "rock americana with a soulful drip." Experience rapid fire acoustic guitar, incendiary harmonica, fiercely energized solos, all driven by a thunderous kick drum.

There will be a full cash bar with speciality cocktails on site. Event proceeds will help fund the sixth deployment of sculptures into the Underwater Museum of Art bringing the total number of deployed art works to 47. Tickets are on sale now for $100 in advance and $125 at the door, if available. Don't miss the opportunity to embark on this journey of sensory delight and discovery.
