Merry Charity is an annual holiday event that invites the Jacksonville professional community to join together for a night of holiday cheer and charity to benefit The Guardian ad Litem Program, JASMYN, Inc., The St. Johns Riverkeeper, Save Africa Global, Inc., The Sulzbacher Center, First Coast No More Homeless Pets and the Jacksonville Urban League.
Each charity has a list of holiday and winter season needs, including toys, games, dolls, office supplies, toiletries,electronics, gift baskets, clothing, dog and cat food, cleaning supplies, educational tools, furniture and gift cards.
The Law Office of Maggie Jo Hilliard, P.A. has joined forces with other professional service companies and area restaurants, stores, gyms and businesses to provide for the needs of charities that support the homeless, minorities, animals, children, international and environmental causes. Special thanks for these efforts are listed at the event website at www.merrycharity.com.
Casa Marina Inn & Restaurant has generously donated a venue, and The Brockwell Firm and The Camerlengo Law Group have pledged to support hors d’oeuvres at the exciting event. The traditional “ugly holiday sweater contest” will be held, and the winner will take the coveted annual award.
The event proves to increase in both excitement and competitiveness year after year, as teams and individuals compete to win more prizes by giving more to the community.
Maggie Jo Hilliard stated, “For every twenty-five dollars in donations, the benefactor receives a raffle ticket. The more raffle tickets attendees get, the more chances they have to win. There is a definite incentive to brightening the lives of others at this event.”
Raffle prizes donated by local businesses include thousands of dollars in food, activities, memberships, and art that guests can win in exchange for donations.
