2nd Annual Event & Fundraiser on December 11, 2014 at Unity Plaza

November 25, 2014 – Jacksonville, Fla. – The building industry comes together to celebrate the holidays with the second annual fundraiser held at Unity Plaza, 220 Riverside Ave, on December 11, 2014 from 5:30-9:30 pm.

Jax Holiday Bash event is a shining example of how groups can come together for benefits that are both mutual and supporting the public at large. The building industry associations recognized the critical need that Unity Plaza faces at their inception, and that they could be a part of a legacy by giving the cause its first push towards success. For this reason, they have combined each of their holiday celebrations into one large event to raise funds for Unity Plaza and other designated children’s charities including PACE Center for Girls, Hero Bakers, and Don’t Miss A Beat (DMAB). In addition, because Unity Plaza is tasked with supporting other non-profit entities, the funds raised from this event have a long- lasting ripple effect.

“We are amazed at how the design, engineering, construction, development, and real estate industry associations have joined together for this cause! These partners, and our dedicated group of team volunteers, have created what will be a fantastic event,” said Mike Biagini, Business Development Manager, Scherer Construction, Chair for the event. “We now have 11 associations representing more than 2,000 members involved,” added Biagini.

Attendees can expect a fun and chic event filled with tacky sweaters and decorations of a caliber that would make the Griswold’s blush! The evening festivities will include a tacky sweater fashion show, charity casino, entertainment and bands, PACE portrait artist display and holiday themed refreshments. In addition to the evening festivities, attendees can look forward to networking across industry organizations and with the public and private pillars that make our city run.

“There could be no better way to kick off the soft opening of Unity Plaza than to host the professionals from the design, engineering and building community for their holiday socials. This is the first of endless special events over the months, years and decades to come and on this special night we are honored to celebrate the professionals who bring our real estate development visions to life.” – Alex Coley, park land donor and Co-Founder & Principal NAI Hallmark Partners.

Sponsorships are available and registration is now open at www.jaxholidaybash.com.
