The Jacksonville “CommUNITY Festival” Press Release:
SaltyLight Productions presents the 1st annual “Jacksonville Community Unity Festival”, which will be held on Saturday, November 16th at Brewster's MegaPlex from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. This single day ensemble of diverse compassionate people will meet the needs of our city by helping to build awareness and value of all people through our local businesses and outreach organizations. The goal of this event is to establish a safe and fun family-reunion-style atmosphere that encourages everyone to think critically, live intentionally, and sincerely love their neighbors in spite of our diverse religious, political, or cultural preferences. Young adults (18-29 yr olds) from our five local colleges and 12 non-profit organizations have donated their time and resources to fund this FREE event. Everything will be a first come first serve basis. It will be led and hosted by local students from UNF, JU, FSCJ, EWC and Jones College to empower everyone to win in the “human race”.
This is NOT a religious or political event. All are welcome to come and have a good time helping to better our beautiful city of Jacksonville. The event will include a morning feeding center for the homeless, an afternoon 12 zone scavenger hunt fundraiser that includes a cook-off & community thrift store. There will be an evening after party that will include a dancing step show, and a live community concert. We could use your help with promoting & recruiting our 300 volunteers, 30 sponsors, and participating vendors to maximize this moment. Brewster's Megaplex is located at 845 North University Blvd 32211.For more information go to www.theCOREtour.org www.facebook.com/groups/142074742658737/call Sandra N. Love (904) 610-5426.
