The 10th annual Jack in the Park fundraiser for Special Olympics Florida is Saturday, Oct. 15, from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Rachel D. Murrah Civic Center, 1050 W. Morse Blvd., Winter Park.
The event features food and wine from local restaurants in a walkabout setting with live music. In addition, there is a silent auction and a blackjack tournament (that’s the Jack in the name).
Tickets are $100 per person and can be purchased at this link. Type in MPACT for a discount.
I was pleased to be the honorary chair of the event last year, and I can heartily recommend that you attend. The money goes to a great cause, and the food and drinks are worth the price alone.
Among the restaurants that will be attending are flog favorites The Whiskey, Oceanaire Seafood Room, Baoery, Soco, The Tap Room at Dubsdread, Taverna Opa, and Tapa Toro.
