OUR CHARITY PARTNERSHIPS
Each year the St. Augustine Historic Inns gives a portion of our tour proceeds to a not-for-profit charity in the St. Augustine area.
Our Charity Partners for the 2017 B&B Holiday Tour are Field of Dreams, a specially designed baseball field that will allow mentally or physically handicap kids the opportunity to play baseball; Community Hospice, with a range of services; and Lincolnville Museum, sharing their unique history.
In 2016, the B&B Holiday Tour Charity Partner was the Lightner Museum. Their mission is to preserve, maintain, research and interpret the Museum's Collections for the educational benefit of the visiting public. The Museum is a non-profit cultural institution sustained by admissions and donations, and it is supported by a dedicated staff of volunteers. Two additional charity partners were recognized as well, the Betty Griffin House and the St. Francis House, An Ecumenical Ministry, Moving People from Homelessness to Hope!
The Tour's charity partner for the 2015 event was the local Betty Griffin House, which provides shelter and counseling for victims of domestic violence. (www.bettygriffinhouse.org)
Partial proceeds of the 2014 tour were donated to Fresh Starts in Culinary Arts, which is operated by First Coast Technical College, who train qualified homeless participants leading to food service certification. The aim is to help graduates find jobs in the food service/hospitality industry, or to transfer into FCTC’s culinary arts program.
