An innovative fundraising event, Halloween Doors & More, was developed in 2005 to build financial support and raise awareness of Community PedsCare while also delivering a memorable experience for Community PedsCare and First Coast families.
At this annual event, patients and their families have the opportunity to enjoy activities and entertainment where accommodations are made for their conditions without hampering their fun. Held in October at an indoor facility that can hold 1,800 people, Halloween Doors & More is a gala of a different sort. The event is fun and festive, not scary or spooky. Children trick-or-treat for toys at 14-feet-high fantasy “doors.”
For many parents, watching their children work their way through the doors is sheer delight. The broad smiles on their faces say it all. Many Community PedsCare children are so enthralled by the experience they don’t want to leave. One mother commented, “My child smiled more in one evening than she has the entire year.”
Hugely successful, Halloween Doors & More raised more than $425,000 in its first year, making it the biggest inaugural fundraiser in the city of Jacksonville. Since its inception the event has raised more than $3.1 million for Community PedsCare.
Tickets: $10 for each or 15 tickets for $100. Raffle drawing will be held on Saturday, October 18, 2014. You do not need to be present to win. No purchase necessary for participation.

A program of Community Hospice of Northeast Florida in collaboration with Wolfson Children’s Hospital, Nemours Children’s Clinic and the University of Florida–Jacksonville, Community PedsCare offers support, comfort and care to more than 150 children and their families.
