“We are beyond thrilled to be hosting our 4th Annual Easy On 30A Benefit Concert in WaterColor. What started out as a small event for friends and family has turned into an amazing community affair with over 1000 attendees and thousands of dollars raised for our charities. We are not at all surprised that 30A has once again rallied together to support their very own, and we are humbled and grateful to all of you making this happen again this year with us.” - Beth and Randy Carroll
Easy on 30A was founded four years ago by locals Beth & Randy Carroll, with an idea of bringing musicians together to highlight the great talent along 30A and to bring community awareness to charities in the area. This is the fourth year that the Easy On 30A Benefit Concerts have supported Alaqua Animal Refuge. Alaqua Animal Refuge is a no-kill shelter, located in Northwest FL, that actively rescues, rehabilitates and adopts a wide variety of animals in need and to-date has adopted out over 11,000 animals since 2007.
Easy On 30A is presented by the WaterColor Homeowners Association, who graciously allows the use of Marina Park in WaterColor to bring this FREE concert to WaterColor owners, area residents and visitors to the 30A community. Easy On 30A works together with the WaterColor Community and WaterColor Resort to bring this fun charity event to fruition during one of the busiest weeks of the summer.
