“May The Doors Be With You” — The star-studded ‘gala of a different sort’ benefits the Community PedsCare program
On Saturday, Oct. 20, just in time for Halloween, Community Hospice & Palliative Care’s Halloween Doors & More transformed the Jacksonville Fairgrounds Exhibition Hall into a galaxy far, far away. As an homage to the cinematic classic “Star Wars,” this year’s theme was “May The Doors Be With You.” It was a star-studded event with appearances from Harry Potter, Dorrie, Nemo, Shrek and Darth Vader himself!
Northeast Florida’s premier Halloween event, Halloween Doors & More, is truly a gala of a different sort where guests saw huge smiles on the faces of children and adults alike. Made possible by the 2018 presenting sponsor, THE PLAYERS Championship, at this year’s star-studded event, kids and parents enjoyed a day of magic, fantasy and so much more.
Each year, Bolles students turn out in droves to support the event as costumed character volunteers. Carrying on a longstanding tradition of service, Bolles students represented more than one-third of the 100 character positions at the event.
Proceeds from Halloween Doors & More benefited Community PedsCare, a program of Community Hospice supporting children living with serious illnesses and their families. About 94 percent of the costs incurred by Community PedsCare are not reimbursed by insurance.
