We kicked off the start of our OFF SEASON FROYO PRICING of $.29 per oz by hosting a fundraiser on November 1 to benefit the American Red Cross. Our Froyo Fundraiser raised nearly $700 for hurricane victims.
Sweet By Holly Froyo pricing beats any competitor. On November 1, we donated 100% of all Froyo proceeds to the American Red Cross. Not only did this mean savings, families enjoyed knowing that every penny of their frozen yogurt purchase on November 1 helped hurricane victims. Thanks to all who came out for this event!
Girls on the Run© is a non-profit, community-based prevention program that encourages preteen girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through running. Their curricula address all aspects of girls’ development – their physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual well-being.
GOTR of Northeast Florida creates life-changing experiences for all girls ages 8-11 by combining training for a 5K run with important life lessons that encourage healthy habits, self-esteem, positive thinking and an active lifestyle. The result is an awesome way of life for a new generation of girls!
Programs are held each Spring and Fall for 12 weeks at various schools, parks and YMCA’s throughout Northeast Florida, including Nassau, Duval, St. Johns, Baker and Clay counties. Girls on the Run combines running with life lessons. The program is non-competitive – we focus on getting each girl to do her individual best!
Each lesson includes team building activities, running games and work-outs, and uplifting group discussions, while focusing on a healthy living topic, such as:
*Handling peer pressure/gossip
Today, Miss Holly had fun at their 5K run, handing out cupcakes to the 900 runners at the finish line…
Do you know a little girl, aged 8 – 11 who would benefit from this program? Please visit www.gotrneflorida.org for more information.
We are at Jim and Tab Furyk’s residence on Ponte Vedra Beach today with 300 VIPs raising funds for the Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation.
The Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation is dedicated to supporting these groups through fund raising events and donations. There are many wonderful organizations here in Jacksonville working everyday to provide services to help children in need. Some provide food and shelter to underprivileged children, while others care for those with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and offer family counseling to those who are suffering. There are groups who can educate our children to keep them safe from violence or simply provide a safe place for our child to get them off the streets. Right in our own backyard we have an amazing children’s hospital that cares for our children but relies on charity donations to run many of its programs.
The couple believe that while raising charity dollars is crucial, making our community aware of the many local charities in Jacksonville is equally important. These charities provide an invaluable service for those who feel they have nowhere to turn. “We want people to know there is help available. They look forward to using our resources to grow these programs and to provide more services for the children and families in our community.”
Below are a few of the charities that the Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation has selected to be the beneficiaries of the 2012 FURYK & FRIENDS Concert and Celebrity Golf Classic.
1) Community PedsCare is a nationally recognized pediatric palliative and hospice program for children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. 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 these children and their families.
2) Blessings in a Backpack is a non-profit organization that feeds U.S. School Children who currently are fed during the week on the federally funded Free and Reduced Meal Program, and are at risk of going hungry on the weekends. The program works with elementary school-aged children whose families cannot afford enough food. Better test scores, improved reading skills, positive behavior, improved health and increased attendance have all been attributed to the success of this program. Locally Blessings in a Backspack is helping to feed over 1300 school children in the Jacksonville area and nearly 57,000 across the county.
3) Recognized as one of America’s Best Children’s Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, Wolfson Children’s Hospital is the only full-service tertiary hospital for children in the region, serving North Florida, South Georgia and beyond. Wolfson Children’s Hospital is a non-profit organization that is apart of Baptist Health, the region’s most comprehensive healthcare provider. The world-class pediatric care available at Wolfson Children’s Hospital is made possible by the support of Baptist Health Foundation and enhanced through physician partnerships with Nemours Children’s Clinic, the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville, Brooks Rehabilitation and Mayo Clinic. As a non-profit organization, Wolfson Children’s Hospital relies on charitable donations to provide world-class care for all children in the region.
Our beach themed dessert display will be amongst the many delectable offerings Jacksonville’s top dining spots are cooking up for Jim and Tab Furyk’s guests. Additionally, country fans will be delighted to know that celebrated musician Jack Ingram will be hosting a private concert.
This is such a worthy cause, and being fairly new residents of Jacksonville, we are only too willing to participate. Thank you Jim & Tabitha Furyk for opening up your home to this beautiful cause.
Miss Holly with our take home gifts for the 300 guests.
Hollis Wilder is so proud to be a part of the GENERATION W inaugural event. The “Living Powerfully” event will be held April 20th at the Fine Arts Center for the University of North Florida in support of Generation W Women’s leadership program.
This event is a celebration of 800 female leaders in the community empowering others to reach for life and professional goals and to encourage self change and growth. With the belief that every person in this world has the ability to achieve anything they set their mind to, a distinguished panel of guest speakers will be presenting how to achieve their goal tools, not only to better themselves, but change the world as they know it in the process.
The philosophy of empowerment and finding your passion sticks true for the Sweet by Holly brand, and fits perfectly in line with all that the Generation W belief stands for. Miss Holly is proud to be part of this event and share her story about starting from the ground up, taking chances and being blessed with success despite challenging periods. Starting a complete new career venture, treading in uncharted waters, turning her world upside down, she’s still evolving, learning, and enjoying the (sometimes bumpy) ride.
Miss Holly is excited to be joining a panel of many accomplished, well known speakers from around the country including media moguls, political intellects, philanthropists, and world-class athletes to support in the development of strength and creativity for females of all generations. As a bonus for attendees, she will have cupcakes for everyone!
Miss Holly was asked the question: “What is it like to be a Woman in 2012?” Here’s what she had to say.
“While there are believers out there convinced that 2012 will be the end of the world, I think its an opportunity which places the world is at our feet. Women have more opportunities, resources, connections and power than we have had in the whole of history.
This is a gift of responsibility, to use it to our best ability to be all that we can be. We need to tell ourselves that there are no limitations except for the one that exists between your ears. It is our job, and not anyone elses to make us be the very best person that we can be; to do more, be more, challenge more, love more.
2012 is a time we don’t need to make excuses for our ambition, and most certainly, don’t need to ask for permission.
2012 is a time to honor our own truth. The most important being the ability to tell the truth when I know it; as a woman, business owner, mother, wife, employer and as a human being. If I am not honest with myself, how do I expect others to be honest with me? Not honoring the truth only places obstacles in one’s way, obstacles that needn’t be there.
2012 is a time to believe in what you want because we have never been more modern, technologically advanced or capable. It’s not grandiose if you can back it up.
2012 is also a time we should be helping each other through platforms such as Gen W. As former Former U.S. Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright said: “There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” The world is more connected technologically than ever, lets use this and widen our network, helping all the women within our network, to push each other to the top – not trample on each other on the way up.
This is our time. 2012.”
We encourage women of all ages to review the upcoming highlights of this revolutionary event taking place in Jacksonville next month. Please visit www.genwnow.com for more information, and ladies of the future, we will see you there.
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
Miss Holly made an appearance on WJXT News Jax 4 in early February to show everyone another way to say “I Love You” with chocolate! Valentine’s Day cupcakes from Sweet!
