St. Petersburg, FL —The Suncoast Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. is excited to host its annual Fall Fundraising Gala on Sunday, Oct. 2, 2016 at 4 p.m. at St. Petersburg Country Club in
St. Petersburg. The event is themed “Champions of Children: Hearts Afire” and includes a celebrity-studded pink carpet, dinner, silent auction followed by a Leadership Awards program.
The occasion will bring together individuals and organizations to recognize, honor and promote outstanding community leaders who too often are unrecognized for their important contributions—unsung heroes who have tirelessly and unselfishly demonstrated outstanding commitment and service to improving and enhancing the lives of children.
Tickets cost $50 for adults and $25 for children and can be purchased online at SuncoastJJFamilyGala.Eventbrite.com. Proceeds from the event will benefit charitable community programs that support youth and families in Pinellas and Manatee counties.
