Gray Robinson, P.A. Presenting Sponsor of JPMF Benefit Gala

Jess Parrish Medical Foundation (JPMF) has announced the law firm of GrayRobinson, P.A. as the presenting sponsor for this year’s “A Night of Haunted Elegance” Benefit Gala on Friday, October 26, 2012, from 8:00 pm to midnight at La Cita Country Club in Titusville.

Proceeds from the gala will benefit The Children’s Center and cancer care programs at Parrish Medical Center. “Our law firm has been built by giving back to the communities in which we live and work. In this case The Children’s Center is an amazing asset for the vulnerable children of our Central Florida community and especially for the Space Coast. The Parrish Medical Center cancer program also provides much needed cancer care and services for the citizens of North Brevard county and Central Florida. It is our privilege to be able to give back in this way,” said William A. Boyles, shareholder at GrayRobinson, P.A.

Guests attending this year’s costume ball will experience a night full of spooks and surprises, and those dressed in a formal costume will have a chance to win $1,000 in the costume contest. While guests are indulging in delicious delights, they will also experience a ghostly waltz from Titusville’s Downtown Dance Studio and the mysterious magic of Todd Bogue.

Event co-chairs, Kelley Broome and Lisa Mathews, agree that “The ‘La Cita Legend’ sets the tone for this year’s gala.” The legend is told of a plantation property in Titusville, Florida that is passed down through family generations and ends in the hands of the last heir, a woman. The mistress of the mansion always flaunted her good fortune, throwing lavish parties, until the entire family and staff suffer a mysterious death. Now, she refuses to accept her fate to cross to the other side, so she continues to host elaborate parties night after night and keeps her staff trapped in this world. This night, October 26, guests are invited to her All Hallow’s Eve gala where one guest will break the mistress’ spell and free the staff forever.

The underwriting committee has secured sponsorships from numerous other community members and organizations. As a “Temptation” level sponsor, Jon’s Fine Jewelry in Cocoa Village has graciously donated an 18k criss cross black and white diamond fashion ring valued at $5,000. Guests who treat themselves to the “Spell Breaker,” a signature bubbling cocktail, will have a chance to win the spectacular diamond ring.

“I’ve been a sponsor for the past three years and each year the event surpasses my expectations. I had no doubt that I wanted to be a sponsor again this year. I’m looking forward to this exciting event that will benefit so many people in our community,” said Jon Miller of Jon’s Fine Jewelry. 

Other sponsors at the time of this release include: “Desire” sponsors, Bill and Ashley Byrne/Edward Jones and the Titusville Ladies Club; “Temptation” sponsors, Brevard Indo-American Medical and Dental Association, Boggs Gases, Dr. Greg and Lori Gullikson, and N. Christine Sylvester; and “Illusion” sponsors, La Cita Golf and Country Club, Morgan Stanley, Team Health Anesthesia and Parrish Anesthesia Specialists, and Wells Fargo. Invaluable media sponsors include: Brevard Business News, FLORIDA TODAY and SCB Marketing. Promotional photography donated by Other generous sponsors will be recognized at the ball.

“We are so grateful to all of our sponsors, many of which continue to support us year after year. The sponsors will help make a real difference in the lives of countless children and cancer patients who will directly benefit from this year’s gala,” said Richard Boggs, immediate past chairman, JPMF board of directors, and underwriting chairman of the gala committee.

Event co-chairs are Chris and Kelley Broome, and Dr. Biju and Lisa Mathews. Other committee members are Richard Boggs, Ashley Byrne, Tara Edginton, Betty Greene, Lisa McAlpine, Ali Miller, Katherine Musick, Barbara Terhune, Misty Wilson and Holly Woolsey. The event design and production is being done by Christina Brown of Stina Bee Marketing and Events.            

General admission tickets to the ball may be purchased for $100 per person. Additional sponsorships are available starting at $350. Space is limited. Register online at or call Jess Parrish Medical Foundation at 321-269-4066.
