The StAR Council showcased its 9th Annual BRATINI on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at Serenata Beach Club, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The annual fundraiser brings awareness to needs of St. Johns County cancer patients and raises funds for services directly given to supporting organizations including ARTBREAKERS and PINK HEALS who serve local residents.
This year StAR Council is expanding its giving to other nonprofit organizations who have supported and partnered with the group in various projects. The ARC of the St. Johns, which is contributing two decorated bras, will also benefit from the event. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and this event heightens awareness for all forms of cancer. Adult male models dance to popular themed songs while modeling the bras as an auctioneer solicits bids for charity. Other activities include a silent auction and grand door prize drawing valued at $1000.
Gentlemen Against Domestic Violence visited St Augustine on their way to Washington D. C. from Naples, FL on bicycles. When they get to Washington D.C. they will have travelled more than 1200 miles on those bicycles. First Coast.TV got a chance to speak with them and find out a bit more about their cause and journey.
On Friday, December 11th from 5:30-7:30 there will be a Wine Tasting Event to benefit Emergency Services Homeless Coalition (ESHC) in their efforts to get homeless families back on their feet and become self efficient.
The event will be held at Amistad 4225 A1A S. Ste. 10, St Augustine. Taste 5 Fair Trade Wines, great snacks from The Purple Olive and a 10% discount on all purchases!
Tickets are $20 per person. Please call (904) 547-2446 for more information.
The St. Augustine Regional Council, ARTBREAKERS, and Pink Heals presented their annual Bratini Fundraiser on Thursday, September 24, 2015, at Ponte Vedra‘s Serenata Beach Club. A dinner gala was held in which guests could bid on local community men modeling artistically designed bras. A silent auction was also held during the event.
This fundraiser was created in order to increase awareness for cancer patients in the community. All proceeds will benefit the St. Augustine Regional Council (StAR), ARTBREAKERS, a local non-profit that provides services for cancer patients, and Pink Heals, an organization that keeps its fundraiser money local.
The event was a lot of fun for a great cause.
