The Specktator is thrilled to have European Street Cafe as title sponsor of the online calendar!
As one of my favorite places to eat, drink and socialize in the the city, “E. Street” (as the cool kids call it) makes the perfect partner to help promote the best events happening in the city.
NOTE: This is a “curated calendar,” meaning I have personally reviewed each event and consider it to be of interest to the general public and/or something particularly compelling. It is important to know that businesses cannot buy a calendar entry. That said, if you have an event you would like considered for the calendar, send the pertinent information to email@example.com.
And by the way, be sure to change the view from “month” to “stream” below. Unless you like being really annoyed.
Sundays are for Hyperion + Chill.

Jacksonville, FL – Catholic Charities’ Annual Black & White Ball will be held March 3rd at US Assure Club in EverBank Field. The event serves as one of the primary fundraisers for Catholic Charities Jacksonville Regional Office of the Diocese of St. Augustine, with proceeds assisting the agency in reaching out to the community with emergency assistance.
The event will feature gourmet food, dancing and fun for guests. The Faze Band will be providing music for guests to enjoy throughout the evening.
Kendra Scott Jewelry will be offering a Jewelry Pull to support the event. A full list of participating sponsors can be found on the Catholic Charities website, www.ccbjaxevents.org.
Catholic Charities Jacksonville provides five major programs, including Emergency Assistance. They are the largest provider of emergency financial assistance in our community.
The goal of the Emergency Assistance program is to prevent homelessness by helping families who are facing eviction or the loss of utilities due to a recent financial crisis. Short-term assistance with rent, mortgage payments, utilities, and food is provided. All proceeds raised by the Black & White Ball will support those efforts.
Last year, the Emergency Assistance program served 13,459 individuals, and distributed 135,951 pounds of food to those in need in the community.
Tickets to this event are $200 for guests. Sponsorships are still available and run from $1,000 to $20,000. Please call Nicola Barnack at (904) 899-5505 or visit www.ccbjax.org for more information.
