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”

“We are so grateful to all of our sponsors, many of which continue

in the lives of countless children and cancer patients who will directly
benefit from this year’s gala,” said Richard Boggs, immediate
