Thank you Jacksonville! On March 2nd, 2008, about 40 Equality Florida supporters attended the 2nd Annual Jacksonville EQFL Reception and were able to raise $30,000 for Florida’s only statewide LGBT advocacy organization. The weather could not have been more perfect for an outdoor event and the setting was in the beautiful home of Leanne Perez and Eyleen Guerra on the Southside of Jacksonville.
Speakers during the program included the hosts, Leanne Perez and Eyleen Guerra, Equality Florida Board Member Neil Kohrn, and Executive Director of Equality Florida, Nadine Smith.
The wonderful hors d’oeurvres were prepared by Chunky Chef and our wonderful volunteer bartenders Marti and Kevin supplied everyone with refreshments of their choosing.
If you weren’t able to make the event this year, keep an eye out for announcements for the 2009 Jacksonville Equality Florida Reception!
Congratulations to the Jacksonville Host Committee for bringing together another amazing reception!
Jim Gleaton & Michael Shell, Neil Kohrn, Rosan Larizza, Helen Parnell, Leanne Perez and Eyleen Guerra, and Kevin Washington and Larry Laskin.
