The Jacksonville Humane Society is excited to announce that the 19th annual Toast to the Animals will be held on Friday, September 15 at EverBank Field. Chaired by Jacksonville Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell and his wife, Joelle, the evening will provide Jacksonville’s animal lovers a chance to sample some of the best cuisine the First Coast has to offer. From hors d’oeuvres and desserts there’s something to fit everyone’s taste. This year we will not be featuring wine tastings, but instead, wine and beer will be available at the bar and is included with the cost of your ticket. You can also enjoy our signature cocktail featuring Tito’s Handmade Vodka. All proceeds will benefit the JHS medical fund. This event is restricted to those 21 years of age and older.
