Night for Heroes raises big dollars for TraumaOne


More than 500 guests attended A Night for Heroes 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront earlier this year. Thanks to sponsors, ticket sales, donations and a silent auction, the fifth annual black-tie fundraising gala raised more than $83,000 for TraumaOne at Shands Jacksonville, the region’s only adult and pediatric Level I trauma center. Donations were used to purchase and outfit a new vehicle. This will allow TraumaOne to haul equipment and resources to the more than 30 injury prevention and outreach presentations it makes each year in the Greater Jacksonville community to schools such as Darnell-Cookman Middle/High School, Julington Creek Elementary and John E. Ford K-8 School. Remaining donations were used to purchase a pediatric patient simulator and educational materials for awareness campaigns about kids injury prevention, fall prevention in the elderly, and youth anti-bullying.
