Black Tie and Blue Jeans Gala

First Coast Rotaract is pleased to announce the Cathedral Arts Project as the beneficiary of the 12th Biennial Black Tie & Blue Jeans Gala. The event is a charity fundraiser put on by First Coast Rotaract and sponsored by Black Knight Financial.

Cathedral Arts Project’s mission is to enrich the quality of life in Northeast Florida by unleashing the creative spirit of children in the local community. Rotaract’s goal is to supply over 200 of their visual arts students with art backpacks.

Over the past 12 years, the gala has raised more than $160,000 for various organizations, including Big Fun Box, JLG Brain Cancer Foundation, and the Ronald McDonald House.

Attendees sporting a mix of black tie and blue jeans attire will enjoy an open bar, hors d’oeuvres from local restaurants, live music, and raffle items. Tickets can be purchased in advance for only $50 per person and can be purchased either online or from any First Coast Rotaract member.

Community Service

Thank you to those who made it out to the 20th annual St. Johms River Cleanup and Celebration. This day does a lot of good for keeping trash and debris out of Jacksonville’s many great waterways.

If you have any questions about community service please contact Sara Brown.


Our next sports event will be Saturday March 28th. Please come join us for some fun on the driving range. A few people may actually know what they are doing but the rest of us can have fun in our futile attempt to hit a ball sitting at our feet. Details and RSVP on our Facebook page.
