Local businesses are signing up for the Steals and Slides: Kicking out Homelessness tournament benefiting the Clara White Mission. This is the 3rd annual kickball tournament hosted by the Horne Foundation to raise money to feed the homeless and educate people about food scarcity issues in Jacksonville.
This year the goal is to raise $5K for the Clara White Mission which will provide more than
1600 meals to their clients. Local businesses can get involved by registering a team or
sponsoring the tournament-style single-elimination game on April 29th, 9 am-2 pm at Ray Greene Park. The registration fee is $100 for 10 players. Joketra Hall, Miss Tallahassee Caribbean Carnival Queen (2019-2021) started the foundation two years ago in honor of her father who inspired her to be a community servant and give back.
In 2020 Hall launched the Steals and Slides kickball tournament in three cities: Jacksonville, Tallahassee, and her hometown Pensacola. Each year She has partnered with the Clara White Mission and has contributed thousands of dollars to the mission’s feeding program.
