Well, the summer certainly started with a few bangs….a 2nd and 3rd, to be exact!
Our 2nd Annual Sandals & Sneakers Gala was held on May 4th, and what a fun celebration! Intuition Ale’s Bier Hall and the music of Top Shelf provided the foundation of a fun-filled evening. Add in the emcee talent of First Coast News’ own Anthony Austin and the auctioneer-ing expertise of Gray Bean, and the event was set.
An evening of dancing + eating + laughing + learning + all while raising money for vital mental health services = the right place to be.
And our night was no exception! Make sure you keep an eye and ear out for next year’s gala. You don’t want to miss it!
Our 3rd version of Murals & Melodies took place on the campus of UNF, and it was five full days of empowerment fun! Soul Life (Chez Leeby), with the help of The Goodness Tour, UNF Brooks College of Health, CGC staff, and a score of other volunteers, made the magic happen for more than 55 campers. Empowering messages were expressed through art, music, movement, storytelling, AI/technology, and the building of relationships. It was a wonderful week of self-exploration and empowerment.
