From 5 p.m. to 7p.m. at the Florida Christian Center campus, more than 20 Murray Hill merchants, including restaurants, shops, churches and other non-profits will provide the larger community a “taste” of what they offer. All members of the community are welcome to attend.

The purpose of the event is to raise funds to support the low-income seniors on the campus. The $10 entrance fee ($20 maximum per family) can be paid in advance through the Florida Christian Center Facebook event page or in person at the event. Additional donations are welcome to support the mission of the Florida Christian Center, which serves more than 300 residents of the subsidized senior housing community.
