11th Annual Festival d'Vine

More than 800 people attended the 11th Annual Festival d’Vine held in Treaty Oak Park on Saturday, November 8th. Patrons sampled delicious food from some of Jacksonville’s finest restaurants and more than 200 wines thanks to our wine partner Ovinte’. Catholic Charities was able to raise over $120,000 for their Emergency Assistance Program, which helps prevent homelessness in our community.

Croquets Monsieur, smoked wild salmon and braised pork shank were just a few of the many delicious foods that were served. Guests were able to enjoy a gorgeous evening surrounded by twinkling lights, a beautiful old historic Oak tree and live music from the Chris Thomas Band.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, patrons, volunteers, participating restaurants, and Ovinte’ for making this event a success and helping us raise funds for those in need in our community.
