Keep an eye out for the upcoming #DTJax Gala returning February 2020.
 






THANK YOU FOR A SOLD OUT EVENT! WE APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT.



Four years ago, we launched the #DTJax Gala to celebrate Downtown Jacksonville and raise funds to the LABS initiative, which is dedicated to making Downtown more vibrant and active. 

Our 4th Annual #DTJax Gala, "Havana Nights, Neon Lights," was a great success celebrating Downtown with approximately 300 guests. We couldn't have done it without our more than two dozen sponsors, event partners, volunteers and our dedicated staff.

     More About the LABS Initiative 

Created in 2017, the LABS Initiative strives to identify, develop, and implement placemaking best practices that enhance the vibrancy of Downtown Jacksonville. Guided by an advisory committee and utilizing funds we raise philanthropically, LABS invests in projects that create walkable connectivity, activate the streetscape, enhance public spaces, and engage the community. More succinctly, our goal is to create “moments" throughout Downtown.
