Jacksonville Science Festival: HEROES Scholarship Auction

Jacksonville Science Festival's HEROES Scholarship hosted their 5th annual live and silent auction at the Casa Marina Hotel and Restaurant on March 5. More than $150,000 in scholarship funds were raised throughout the evening which featured pirates, cocktails and eats from the Casa Marina hospitality team. Guests later bid on items ranging from championship Sunday tickets at the PLAYERS to one-week vacations in Greece, while artworks created by students from The Foundation Academy were also up for grabs. All proceeds went to support JSF's commitment to bringing educational resources and opportunities to at-risk and under-served children including summer camps, after-school activities and other Festival projects throughout the year.
