Two Great Events Benefiting
the Sanctuary on 8th Street


The Sanctuary on 8th Street’s annual friend-raiser is Friday, Sept. 21 at the Garden Club.

This year’s theme is a nod to neighbors and community. Think of a serendipitous gathering with friends on your front porch. Featuring dinner by Bono’s & Pastiche Catering, beer courtesy of Strings Sports Brewery, music by The Wetland String Band and a small silent auction. The Shindig is a Delores Barr Weaver Forever Event Fund event.

Since 1992, the Sanctuary on 8th Street has been a place of hope for children in Springfield. Please join us for an evening celebrating another year of programs in one of Jacksonville’s most underserved neighborhoods.

Tickets are $50 and may be purchased online or by mailing a check to the Sanctuary, P.O. Box 3301, Jacksonville, FL 32206.
