James Party 2019!

Held at the Coronado Cays Yacht Club, annual event benefits
Coronado Young Life and the CARES Foundation

The Coronado community is invited to the JAMES PARTY 2019 scheduled for Sunday, March 10th, 2019 from 4-8 p.m. at the Coronado Cays Yacht Club, 30 North Caribe Cay Blvd., Coronado. The event features a silent and live auction, music, laughs and a fantastic meal. Last year, the James Party raised over $55,000 with proceeds benefitting Young Life Coronado, the CARES Foundation and the James Shirey Memorial Garden at Silver Strand Elementary in memory of James Richard Shirey, Jr., son of Jim and Sue Shirey, who passed away, unexpectedly, at the age of 14 in 2009. The young man died of complications from a rare disorder, Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia. The CARES Foundation provides support and education to those individuals and families suffering from this rare disorder.

Coronado’s Young Life Chapter is experiencing exciting growth – fully impacting the lives of island youth. Young Life offers opportunities for Coronado high school students to gather together for fun, relationship building, and the opportunity to learn about God’s love for them. Its sister program, Wyldlife, is designed for middle school students. Both Young Life and Wyldlife leaders invest in the youth where they are, providing a caring adult to support them as they navigate the teen years.

New this year is online bidding so even if you can’t be there you can still bid on some of the fabulous silent and live auction items by registering at the link below.
