2013 Black Tie and Blue Jeans Gala

Black Tie LogoThanks to our wonderful sponsors and attendees we were able to present the JLG Brain Cancer Foundation with a check for $17,500! This helped them to achieve their goal of funding a brain cancer tissue bank here in Jacksonville!

Each year Rotaractors, Rotarians and other community leaders come together to support a local organization in need of funding at the Annual Black Tie and Blue Jeans Gala. At this Spring event, guests attend wearing anything from blue jeans to tuxedos and enjoy live music, hors d’oeuvres from local restaurants and an open bar, all while supporting a great cause.

This year Rotaract is helping in the fight to end cancer by raising monies for the JLG Brain Cancer Foundation. The JLG Foundation is focusing its funding efforts towards the opening and operation of the Mayo Clinic Brain Cancer Tissue Bank right here in Jacksonville. It is an exciting time to be involved with this organization because we have an opportunity to really make a difference. The foundation is $65,000 away from reaching its goal this year and we hope that the Black Tie & Blue Jeans Gala will be instrumental in making this dream a reality.

Our gala this year will be held on September 7th, 2013 at EverBank Center (301 W. Bay Street). Please come out for a fun and wonderful time while supporting this great cause.
