As announced, rain or shine – and it did rain, the 15th annual Festival d’Vine was held Nov. 2 at Treaty Oak/Jessie Ball duPont Park on the Southbank, where the “event under the tent” rolled out 108 types of wine, served beer from local breweries and offered tasty bites from 22 restaurants to support the mission of the Catholic Charities Bureau of Jacksonville. 

Over 550 guests helped raise over $130,000 that will assist the nonprofit to provide emergency financial assistance, workforce development, food assistance, immigration legal services, refugee resettlement and care for persons with different intellectual, physical, social and emotional abilities. Over the past 14 years, this signature event has raised nearly $1 million for Catholic Charities, whose programs served more than 16,712 individuals last year in five counties.
