Luminaria Night Kits on Sale in December

The Garden Club invites you to participate in Riverside Avondale Preservation Luminaria Night by purchasing your own kit, which is a major fundraiser for RAP. The Garden Club is also inviting all of the neighbors on our stretch of Riverside Avenue to participate. We have invited all of them to purchase kits, and Garden Club volunteers will assemble the kits, place them in front of their businesses, and remove them at the end of the evening.


The Garden Club of Jacksonville thanks the Jessie Ball duPont Fund for a generous grant to create signature events like these that establish the Garden Club of Jacksonville as the place in the community to encourage environmental responsibility, forge our connection to the earth, and celebrate green spaces.
