The 16th annual Delicious Destinations – Jacksonville’s Premier Food & Wine Event will take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, September 7-9, 2017 at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club. Delicious Destinations is one of the St. Vincent’s HealthCare Foundation’s signature annual events, and we rely heavily on the support of our sponsors, not only so that we can present this fabulous culinary weekend, but also to fund our core mission of bringing critically needed healthcare to the doorsteps of the disadvantaged, underserved, poor and uninsured in northeast Florida and southeast Georgia.
Your sponsorship of this established and well-regarded event elevates your company’s visibilty among the upscale Northeast Florida/Southern Georgia demographic that the event attracts, and positions your company as a strong advocate for community responsibility and improved quality of life in our region.
Delicious Destinations attracts a highly select and sought-after audience of 800+ patrons to the weekend’s three signature events. These events are:
- Celebrity Chef By The Sea Luncheon, held Thursday, September 7th, which features a nationally known chef in a demonstration-style luncheon; attendance is limited to 320.
- Major Donor and Sponsor Preview Reception, held Friday, September 8th, which provides a rare opportunity for high-level sponsors to network and meet the weekend’s culinary stars.
- Delicious Destinations – A Gourmet Food and Wine Tasting, held Saturday, September 9th, which features executive chefs from exclusive five-star resorts throughout the South, who prepare their special dishes while pairing them with fine wines provided by Southern Wine & Spirits of North Florida. The event also features a boisterous live auction chaired by a celebrity emcee, as well as a substantial silent auction. Last year, participaing chefs included the Executive Chefs from Mar-a-Lago, The Breakers, The Greenbrier, and the Ponte Vedra Lodge & Club, among others, and we are firming up commitments with the same chefs for this year’s gala weekend. Attendance is approximately 500.
We can assure you that you and your guests will agree that Delicious Destinations is the event that everyone wants to attend. We hope you will join us as a sponsor of this event. All proceeds benefit St. Vincent’s Community Outreach Programs.
