Many locals had evacuated and returned, and many folks from the New Orleans area fled here. The already-scheduled, first fundraiser for CVHN became known as the Hurricane Party.

The Hurricane Party has grown in to a great tradition. The 8th annual edition is on September 21 in the heart of South Walton at Bud & Alleys in Seaside, with great food and fun entertainment.
