We are all devastated by the events in Dallas, Baton Rouge and Minnesota this week, just following the celebration of our nation’s birthday. This weekend, take some time to reflect on what it means to be an American today and how we can better work together to make our country a kinder place.
#1 Grab a Bite
This Sunday, head to Seachasers, Jacksonville Beaches’ newest restaurant, for live music, great food and a silent auction to benefit Jump for Kids. A great time for a great cause … it’s a win-win.
#2 Catch a Show
Let your kids know “It’s SHARP to be SMART!” At UNF this Saturday night, this fun fashion show expo for kids will be a creative way to spend your evening and to build some good karma. Ticket sales go to Books-A-Go Go, an organization that provides gently used books to under-served families.
#3 Weekend Warrior
Draw some inspiration this Saturday from the open studios at Artageous Art Walk in Fernandina Beach. The event starts at 5:30 and is a wonderful opportunity to meet some of Amelia Island’s best artists.
#4 Go Outside and Play
There is nothing that brings joy like watching kiddos paint and play in water. We could all use a little joy this weekend. Head to the Jacksonville Landing this Saturday morning to tap into some fun!
#5 Good Sports
This Saturday it is Armadaritaville at the stadium! There are great cocktail packages available for fans. Let loose and celebrate our awesome soccer team this weekend and cheer them on as they take on Puerto Rico on Saturday.
