Rotaract Announcement

September 7th, 2013 at the EverBank Center (301 W. Bay Street).

 The First Coast Rotaract Club, a special community of young professionals located in Jacksonville, will be holding its 11th annual gala this year and doesn’t want you to miss the opportunity to get involved!  Proceeds from this event will be contributed to the JLG Brain Cancer Foundation’s commitment to unlocking a cure for brain cancer. The foundation is in the process of opening a Mayo Clinic Brain Cancer Tissue Bank in our city, and the Black Tie & Blue Jeans Gala will be instrumental in helping them raise the extra $65,000 they need to make this dream a reality.

Attendance: Tickets to the event are $60 each. Gala attendance includes access to an open bar, live entertainment, fellowship, and a whole lot of fun!

Sponsorship: Not only does sponsoring the Gala mean that your company or organization will be contributing to the research and treatment of a disease that affects 190,000 people in the US each year, but it also is a great opportunity to get exposure to both the 250 young professionals that are projected to attend and the community at large in our media advertising before the event.

Join our event by contacting Rotaractor Jacob Dobbs at or by phone at 762-233-6227.

Minutarian Update, Week 9 (August 27th)

This week, the Minutarian comes to us from DG Art, and Youth Exchange Chairman, Jack Murray. We are reminded that the Rotary Youth Exchange’s mission is to bring the world together, one student at a time. The hosting of an exchange student is exciting with many rewards, while the commitment is minimal. The DGE Percy and the Youth Exchange Committee are attempting to make the decision of how many students will be welcomed into our District in 2014-15. We are reminded that the number we host impacts the number of local kids we can send out to other countries on exchange. Our club needs to decide by September 6, 2013 how many students we will host next year.
