Proceeds benefit Downtown Vision as we work to create and support a vibrant Downtown and promote #DTJax as an exciting place to live, work, visit and invest.
Thanks to all who sponsored, attended and supported the #DTJax Gala! We raised $45,000 for the Lively And Beautiful Sidewalks (LABS) Initiative!
Four years ago, we launched the #DTJax Gala to celebrate Downtown Jacksonville and raise funds dedicated to making Downtown more vibrant and active.
Our 4th Annual #DTJax Gala, “Havana Nights, Neon Lights,” was a great success celebrating Downtown with approximately 300 guests. We couldn’t have done it without our more than two dozen sponsors, event partners, volunteers and our dedicated staff.
We raised more than $45,000 to complete more placemaking projects as part of our Lively And Beautiful Sidewalks (LABS) Initiative, which includes projects like the Adams Street Parklet, Lights on Laura holiday decorations, The Corkscrew daytime activation and more riverfront activations to come!
Check out event photos from the #DTJax Gala here and photos from Chic Photo Booth here!
