Daniel Kids

Backyard BBQ Championships

Thank you for your previous participation in the Jacksonville Backyard BBQ event. Over the past ten years, more than $100,000 in educational scholarships have been distributed to formerly homeless teens in our community, thanks to your participation and that of others who support our mission.

After careful consideration, the executive committee has decided to discontinue the BBQ event in 2020, and to bring the event back to our home, “The Home That Daniel Built.” We will host a fundraising gala on Saturday, April 25th, on our Belfort Road residential campus.  The evening will include tours of the children’s cottages and school and the awarding of scholarships to deserving youth.  “An Evening Under the Pavilion” will also feature an open bar, live music, dinner, dancing and auctions.

Proceeds will continue to benefit the Glyn Cook Memorial Scholarship Fund, and will also help renovate the children’s cottages on the Daniel Campus. We invite you to join us for, “The Home That Daniel Built; An Evening Under the Pavilion”, to assist in our mission to improve the lives of children and families.

For more information about event sponsorship, purchasing tickets or to schedule a visit to the campus to discuss how your contribution might assist in these efforts. For more information on sponsorship opportunities, please contact us at [email protected] or 904-296-1055, extension 1033.
