Join us for a transformative evening, the Hope and Justice Dinner, on Saturday, September 14th, 2024, at the Grande Hall at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. This special event is dedicated to bringing renewed hope to unsolved cases and ensuring justice for victims – a cause that resonates deeply within our community. Joining us to MC the evening's events will be First Coast News (FCN) morning Anchor and host of the award-winning FCN series, "Unsolved", Katie Jeffries!

As you savor a delicious dinner, the evening will unfold with a series of impactful moments. A silent auction will tempt you with an array of exciting items, offering the chance to take home a treasure while supporting a worthy cause.

The heart of the night lies in the inspiring stories and expertise shared by our esteemed guest speakers. True crime icon Aphrodite Jones, host of the captivating show "True Crime with Aphrodite Jones," will grace the stage as our keynote speaker. Her unparalleled experience and unwavering passion for unsolved cases will ignite a spark of hope and determination within you.

Joining Aphrodite will be a distinguished panel of individuals who have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of justice. Charlene Shunick, the unwavering founder of Shunick Missing Persons, will share her relentless advocacy for missing persons. Kaycee Connelly and Katie Thomas, the powerhouse duo behind Moxxy Forensic Investigations, will lend their expertise on the crucial role of forensic investigation.

Lt. George Harrigan and Taylor Levesque of the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office will offer valuable insights from the law enforcement perspective. Laura Brotherton, whose life was forever changed by the unsolved homicide of her father, Mark Brotherton, in 1971, will courageously share her story, reminding us of the enduring impact of unsolved cases on families.

Throughout the evening, your ticket grants you entry into a thrilling raffle, offering the chance to win exciting prizes! We will also have a moment to remember each unsolved case in our region during the solemn honor roll, reciting each name whose case remains unsolved.

Tickets are available for $50 and include a delicious dinner and a single raffle ticket. For a truly memorable experience, consider purchasing a table for $400. This option seats your group comfortably and includes dinner, two bottles of wine (red and white), and a raffle ticket for each guest at your table. It also guarantees a prime spot to view the speakers throughout the evening.

The proceeds from this impactful evening will directly benefit Suwannee Valley Unsolved, Inc.'s Cold Case Victim's Advocate Program. This vital program provides invaluable support and resources to families grappling with the agonizing reality of unsolved cases.

Don't miss this powerful opportunity to be part of something meaningful. Join us for the Hope and Justice Dinner, where we come together in a spirit of hope, solidarity, and unwavering commitment to justice.
