Jacksonville joined the list of progressive cities last week with the inaugural Jacksonville Mayor’s Masked Ball, a premier fundraising event, at the Prime Osborn Convention Center. More than 500 corporate partners, educators, religious leaders and community influencers attended the event. Co-hosting festivities were the honorable Mayor Lenny Curry and EWU President Dr. A Zachary Faison, Jr., who collaborated on the gala. Proceeds benefited Jacksonville’s very own historically black college or university (HBCU), Edward Waters University.
The evenings highlights which raised thousands included a silent auction, honors to Jacksonville’s own HBCU legend Dr. Johnetta Cole, live music and food. Edward Waters University is the oldest HBCU in the state of Florida.
