The star-studded ‘gala of a different sort’ benefits the Community PedsCare program

Jacksonville, FL (Oct. 23, 2018) – On Saturday, Oct. 20, just in time for Halloween, Community Hospice & Palliative Care’s Halloween Doors & More transformed the Jacksonville Fairgrounds Exhibition Hall into a galaxy far, far away. As an homage to the cinematic classic “Star Wars,” this year’s theme was “May The Doors Be With You.” It was a star-studded event with appearances from Harry Potter, Dorrie, Nemo, Shrek and Darth Vader himself!

How many Avengers does it take to have a blast a Halloween Doors and More? As many as you can find – Hulk, Thor and Captain America took a little time from world-saving to come to the event.

Northeast Florida’s premier Halloween event, Halloween Doors & More, is truly a gala of a different sort where guests saw huge smiles on the faces of children and adults alike. Made possible by the 2018 presenting sponsor, THE PLAYERS Championship, at this year’s star-studded event, kids and parents enjoyed a day of magic, fantasy and so much more. Proceeds from Halloween Doors & More benefited Community PedsCare, a program of Community Hospice supporting children living with serious illnesses and their families. About 94 percent of the costs incurred by Community PedsCare are not reimbursed by insurance. For more information about Community PedsCare, please visit
