As soon as the goblins, tricksters and witches disappear, thoughts turn to Thanksgiving, Christmas holiday parties and the Season of Giving. Eagle Landing offers their residents several ways to make the holidays happier for Clay County children in need.
The fantastic ladies of our Soaring Eagles Club (50+) gather up donations from area business and annually host a raffle at The Landing Bar & Grill. Last year’s highly successful event benefiting the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program raised over $11,000 and more donations than ever are on hand for this year’s raffle. This is a Ladies Only event!
The 9th Annual “Cheers for Charity” is November 13th with prizes from Christoff Jewelers, Alhambra Dinner Theater, Eagle Harbor & Eagle Landing Golf, Epic Theaters, Trader Joes, Akaya, Dapper Dog – just to name a very small sample. With over 60 retailers donating prizes, the odds are in your favor!
Speaking of which, once again the Eagle Landing Athletic Center is home to our very own Angel Tree for the Salvation Army. Decorated by staff in early November, our Angel Tree is home to 50 Angels in need of a shopping trip! Gift bags returned to the Athletic Center are picked up on December 7th for holiday distribution. Angel Trees can be picked up and dropped over during business hours: 9am – 9pm weekdays, 8am – 7pm weekends.
The Eagle Landing Golf Club joins the giving spirit by hosting the annual US Marine Corp’s “Toys for Tots” drive. Staff Sargent Richard Cable oversees the Jacksonville area program. Drop a new, unwrapped toy in the box located in the foyer of the newly renovated sports bar and dining room between the hours of 6am and 6pm. Please note: Clothing, food or games that require a system are not accepted. Toys for ages 2-12 are needed – especially for the age 10-12 group.
Eagle Landing offers a resort-style lifestyle with amazing amenities and staff and is located at 3973 Eagle Landing Parkway, Orange Park FL. The golf clubhouse is open from 6am – 6pm daily and The Eagle Landing Bar & Grill invites you to lunch daily and delicious entrees served evenings after 5pm Wednesday through Saturday.
Cheers to another Season of Giving! It’s amazing how giving to these worthwhile organizations brings so much joy to your own holiday season.
