“Our annual fundraiser is held to raise money for our youth programs – Youth Leadership Jacksonville and the Collegiate Leadership Experience – but it is also a time to honor those who have served our community as outstanding leaders,” said Isabelle Owen Spence, Executive Director of Leadership Jacksonville. “All three of our leaders this year exemplify our mission of developing leaders to assume greater responsibility as community trustees who improve the quality of life for self, family and community.”

In addition to recognizing the honorees, Leadership Jacksonville will also highlight students currently completing the Youth Leadership Jacksonville program and the Collegiate Leadership Experience. Youth Leadership Jacksonville annually offers training to 50 outstanding students from Baker, Clay, Duval and St. Johns county high schools. The Collegiate Leadership Experience emphasizes community trusteeship to college students from the First Coast.

Tickets to the Celebration 2012 event are $150 per person and can be purchased online at www.leadershipjax.org or by calling (904) 396-6263. A complete list of previous Leadership Jacksonville Celebration honorees can also be found on the website.

We hope to see you at this great community event!
