Toast of the Coast

 

Thank you to First Coast Magazine for hosting the Toast of the Coast – craft cocktail competition event on September 24th.

St. Francis House was honored to benefit from this event.  Our silent auction proceeds and a portion of the ticket proceeds will support the housing-focused services St. Francis House offers to homeless individuals and families in St. Johns County.

The food and the original cocktails were elegant and delicious and The Parlor Room on San Marco Ave is definitely a venue to consider when planning your next party.
