April is Child Abuse Prevention month and the Monique Burr Foundation for Children, Inc. will host “A Night at Roy’s” event to benefit MBF Child Safety Matters™, a research–based, primary bullying and child abuse prevention education program. The event will take place on Thursday, May 1 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Roy’s in Jacksonville Beach.

“We are excited to introduce our new child abuse prevention program, MBF Child Safety Matters, at this year’s event,” said Lynn Layton, executive director of the Monique Burr Foundation for Children  “Through the generosity of our donors, this program has been shared with more than 110,000 elementary students at no cost to our public elementary schools on the First Coast.  By the end of this school year, we will have reached over 450,000 elementary students in Florida.”

Guests at the event will enjoy contemporary, Hawaiian-influenced, gourmet cuisine by world-renowned chef, Roy Yamaguchi. In addition to dinner, fine wines and tropical drinks will also be available throughout the evening as well as live entertainment from Colleen Orender, lead singer of the Sheagles, a Nashville cover band.
