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.
