The Festival of Flight, our largest fundraiser, is an outdoor music and arts festival with local bands, food, a beer garden, creative crafts and games for all ages to enjoy. Because of the generosity of our sponsors and the support of the Jacksonville community, we have raised over $80,000 to further our mission to provide financial assistance for expenses associated with the death of a child.
The Festival of Flight began as an Eagle Scout project and has turned int our largest annual fundraiser of the year. This event involves students and volunteers from all over Northeast Florida as well as many businesses and corporate sponsors who help make the day a success. The festival begins with a Memorial service honoring all our "angel" children and their families. In many cases it is the only time each year a family will hear their child's name read out loud. We call each and every name of the 350+ children we have assisted as well as ringing a bell and displaying their names on a card. After this solemn ceremony the rest of the day is devoted to family-friendly activities like kid's games, crafts and face-painting. There are food and craft vendors as well as craft beer and a tent of Angels for Allison merchandise. Each year we have a raffle offering amazing prizes that are displayed at the event. There is something for everyone!
Join Allison's circle of angels now! Each gift, large or small, can help to lift the financial burden from bereaved parents and families by providing funds to assist with the costs of memorial services.
