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
Proceeds from the
gala will benefit The Children’s Center and cancer care programs at Parrish
“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

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.
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.
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.
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.
