Dreams Come True - 6803 Southpoint Parkway, Jax, FL 32216
Join the Florida Public Relations Association Jacksonville Chapter as we visit Dreams Come True of Jacksonville, Northeast Florida's locally based dream-granting organization for children battling life-threatening illnesses. We will learn about the non-profit’s continuous public relations efforts to connect our local community with the children and families they serve.
As part of the program, our December networking event will also serve as a toy drive for Dreams Come True.
This year, 9-year-old Sadie decided to host a toy drive with the help of Dreams Come True as part of her wish. FPRA Jacksonville is honored to help Sadie in her efforts to bring holiday joy to other children on the First Coast. We are asking everyone to bring at least one, new, unwrapped toy to our event so we can fill Sadie's toy box.
Light food and drinks will be provided by Dreams Come True for all guests.
