JAX Refrigeration, Inc. hosted a grand opening celebration and fundraiser on Monday, November 16th.

Later that evening, at local venue Freebird Live, the JAXCares Foundation hosted a concert, featuring Dave Wakeling and the English Beat to benefit JAX Refrigeration’s Charitable Foundation, JAXCares.
This particular event hosted a silent auction, food, drinks, and more – all to benefit, the Youth Crisis Center (YCC), Dreams Come True, and Do It For the Love. A wonderful nine year old girl named Nora was granted her dream of enjoying a Disney Cruise through Dreams Come True and JAXCares. Nora has been battling cancer since December 2014. The celebration also supported Spectrum Designs Foundation, providers of the official event t-shirts. Spectrum provides gainful employment and meaningful work opportunities to individuals with autism, where they can provide screenprinting, embroidery, and direct to garment digital printing. All said and done, the JAX Refrigeration, Inc. Grand Opening Celebration and Fundraiser generated net proceeds of $ 11,020.
The party raised over $500 to support Dreams Come True.
In 2015, JAX Refrigeration celebrated its 5th anniversary as one of Jacksonville’s top commercial refrigeration and industrial HVAC companies by hosting a JAXCares fundraiser to benefit the Do It For the Love Foundation, Dreams Come True, and Wounded Warrior Project!
To help us celebrate, we tabbed Spectrum Designs Foundation creating the official 5th Anniversary Party T-Shirts. Spectrum Designs is an amazing non-profit organization that works with individuals with Autism to design and produce custom made apparel. Thanks to the support of JAX Refrigeration’s employees, clients, friends and supporters, the February 2015 event raised $72,000! Proceeds went to Do It for the Love Foundation, Dreams Come True, and Wounded Warrior Project.
