All I can say is WOW! Last night’s one year anniversary of the Downtown Catalyst Club was so much fun! We had approximately 50 people at the event in Downtown Jacksonville. David Altman and Evans Adonis with the Jaguars were at the event and gave everyone who attended 2 complimentary tickets to the upcoming Jaguars vs. Falcons game to be held on August 30th. They also did a drawing and two people won Club Seats to the game. Angela Gieras with the Florida Theatre also gave away 2 tickets to the Rock n Blue Fest to be held on August 27th. A lot of people walked over to Indochine afterwards for dinner.
When I started the Downtown Catalyst Club a year ago, I was very unsure if it could sustain itself, but I wanted to do my part to try to support Downtown Jacksonville and the small businesses who are putting forth great efforts to bring Downtown Jacksonville to life. We’ve had some great events at Dos Gatos, LIT, Mark’s, J Bar, Fionn MacCools, Burrito Gallery, the Hyatt, CoWork Jax and the Southlight Gallery. I am trying to decide on a location for September, so if you know of a place, please let me know!
I also was hopeful that if I started this it would be a catalyst for others to do similar events. We have the Art Walk on the 1st Wednesday and Downtown Catalyst on the 3rd Thursday. I would love for someone to step up and take the 2nd and 4th weeks of the month, so we have events every week in Downtown Jacksonville. So what are you waiting for…
