Biggest Finfest ever raises funds for nonprofit

Finfest was large and loud this year as more than 350 supporters “raised the roof” along with significant funds at Timuquana Country Club May 18 during Jacksonville Speech and Hearing Center’s annual benefit event. Event chairs were Matt and Seana McAfee of Ortega, and program emcee was Katie Jeffries, traffic anchor for Good Morning Jacksonville.

As the downtown-based nonprofit celebrates its 70th anniversary year, President and CEO Michael Howland was pleased to share that two local funds are supporting the center through matching grants. The Delores Barr Weaver Fund offered a $35,000 match challenge and the Jessie Ball duPont Fund gave an unrestricted $5,000 match grant.
