Beaches Summer Fest to Benefit MDA

A local family in Jacksonville Beach is pulling out all the stops to help raise money to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Dana and Jeffrey Smith will be hosting the first annual Beaches Summer Fest on June 18th at the Oceanfront Marriott Courtyard in Jacksonville Beach.

For a $30 donation, attendees will be able to taste beer from local breweries such as Bold City Brewery, Intuition Ale Works, Engine 15, Green Room Brewing, Ragtime and Brewers Pizza. The event will also feature live music and a sampling of local restaurants including North Beach Bistro, Ocean 60, Perfect Pear Catering, Dick’s Wings, and Taste.

Dana and Jeffrey Smith have been active fundraisers for MDA since both of their sons, Noah and Rowan, were diagnosed with Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy three years ago. Admissions from the event will be donated to the MDA Champions for a Cure Gala held on November 19, 2011. Donations made to these events not only help fund research, but will also help provide valuable services including equipment repairs, clinic visits, and the annual summer camp for kids with Muscular Dystrophy, like Noah and Rowan.
