PARKLAND, FL- The 3rd Annual "We Are Stoneman Douglas" event is just around the corner. "We Are Stoneman Douglas" is a two day food and wine fundraising event that supports and sponsors mental health care via its partnership with Parkland Cares, a local nonprofit organization.
The event will be held on two days; Friday evening, March 13, at Woodfield Country Club in Boca Raton and Sunday, March 15, at Parkland Golf and Country Club. The Friday evening event is a gourmet food and wine gathering, while the Sunday event features entertainment and a silent auction as well. Debi Weismand and George Temel are co-chairing the event, which raised over $300,000 last year.
Proceeds from the event go towards mental health counseling through Parkland Cares. The mission of Parkland Cares is "to provide immediate and long-term funding and awareness for mental health counseling for the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting survivors, their families and the community-at-large."
A limited number of tickets are still available for the Sunday event. Each ticket is $150, and the price raises to $175 after March 8th. For tickets and to learn more about Parkland Cares, please visit the Parkland Cares website.
