In addition to providing a warm, friendly and fun environment for youth and their families to come together to enjoy great music, the event, now in its second year, generates funds for the Sertoma Youth Ranch, an 88-acre multi-use, multi-functional park and campgrounds located on Meyers Road between Brooksville and Dade City. Founded in 1974, the ranch is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide and maintain a clean and safe outdoor recreational area for Florida’s children. The ranch is available for sponsored youth groups to use at no charge to them. The Sertoma Youth Ranch receives no major outside funding except for private donations and monies generated through various on-site events throughout the year. All net proceeds from Journey Fest will be used to help preserve the camp. For more information about the Sertoma Youth Ranch, visit www.SertomaYouthRanch.com.
Journey Fest is presented by MoJoe Productions, Inc., Faith Tampa Bay, Rev Music and Prodigal Media. Other sponsors include The Joy FM and Spirit 90.5 FM.
Sponsorship packages, as well as vendor spots, are still available. Artist applications are still being received. Go to www.journeyfest.org and/or www.myspace.com/journeyfest for more information.
