The Women's Network is proud to sponsor our annual Luminarias Evening on Saturday, December 10th.
The tradition of Luminarias came from Mexico and was religious in origin. However, Luminarias has become a secular holiday tradition offering serenity and welcoming elements. The tranquility and hopefulness of light in the darkness have led many national charities to embrace Luminarias in their fundraising efforts.
The Women's Network of Jacksonville Golf & Country Club organizes this enchanting wonderland every season, and this year is no exception. Since 1993, volunteers, many being students, have placed sand-filled paper bags along our streets and lit the votive candles inside. The Women's Network purchases Luminaria kits assembled by Pine Castle, an organization they have partnered with for several years. Pine Castle is a non-profit organization that aims to empower adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities through opportunities to learn, work, and connect.
The Women's Network also teams with the Property Owners Association so that the common areas of our entire community flicker with the soft, simple glow of candlelight.
Traditionally, funds from Luminarias have been used to support projects within JGCC. For example, last year, all the profits contributed significantly to the Woodland Parke security improvements.
In addition to the traditional methods of payments of charging your Club account or check, you can also purchase your luminaria kits using Pay Pal. Please scroll down this page for details about pickup times, volunteer opportunities, and purchasing kits. These kits can also be purchased from our online Store and delivered by your Block Captain.
Please mark your calendars to join your fellow neighbors on Saturday, December 10th. Let's light up Jacksonville Golf & Country Club!
