Operation New Hope extends our sincere thanks to the members of Beaches Rotaract for joining the growing list of Second Chance Supporters who believe we are all better than our worst day, worst decision, or worst mistake. Beaches Rotaract hosts an annual charity fundraiser and will donate proceeds from this year’s event to support our life-changing reentry programming. The group of young professionals have also dedicated their time to learn more about barriers people face after involvement with the criminal justice system and have volunteered to help serve our clients by providing them with “welcome home kits” complete with essential hygiene supplies. 

As part of the family of Rotary International, Rotaract brings together young professionals to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service. The Rotaract Club of Jacksonville’s Beaches (Beaches Rotaract) meets once to twice a month to engage in hands-on service projects, social activities, and professional development opportunities. 

A Night at the Alhambraevent will be held at Alhambra Theater & Dining on February 2, 2023, starting at 5:30 p.m. The event will feature an evening of dinner and a show along with a silent auction, raffle, supply drive, cocktails, and fellowship. This year’s production is “A Closer Walk With Patsy Cline”, highlighting Patsy Cline’s life and work featuring renowned actors/actresses and a band with Grammy award-winning musicians.

All proceeds from the evening will benefit our mission is to train, support, and motivate people returning from incarceration to become productive, responsible citizens. Our the last 23 years, our life-changing services have saved taxpayers millions of dollars by avoiding repeated cost of incarceration and lost tax revenue and helping to break the cycle of incarceration and poverty for them and their children.
