Daniel Guiding Hearts Gala: Moonlight Masquerade Raises Money for Kids in Crisis

More than 300 First Coast residents experienced an elegant Venetian masquerade and raised more than $107,000 to help abused, neglected and emotionally troubled children at the Daniel Guiding Hearts Gala: Moonlight Masquerade presented by Enterprise Integration at the Modis Building in Downtown Jacksonville on Saturday, Oct. 23.

Gala guests enjoyed cuisine from top area restaurants including Capital Grille, TacoLu, TPC Sawgrass, Mojo Kitchen, Matthew’s, Heirlooms and more.  Unique performers, including 12-foot tall stilt walkers and musicians dressed in period costumes, entertained the crowd. 

“The evening was just as unique and memorable as we anticipated, with incredible food and entertainment and most importantly, generous sponsors and attendees who were not only enjoying themselves, but really all about supporting the cause,”  said Julie Covington, event committee chair and board member for Daniel and financial advisor for Raymond James. 

Money raised at the event will benefit local programs that serve the abused, abandoned and emotionally-troubled children of Daniel.
