“Cruisin’ Back to School!” Car Show and Charity Event

August 20th 2011 “Cruisin’ Back to School!” Car Show and Charity Event being held at Garber Automall, 3380 Highway 17 Green Cove Springs, FL, from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM. This event is being held to benefit Charles E. Bennett Elementary School.  Charles E. Bennett Elementary is located in downtown Green Cove Springs, FL and does not currently have a functioning Parent Faculty Association. Due to the lack of involvement in the school it is very difficult for the school to raise much needed funds throughout the year to benefit the students.  Garber Automall in conjunction with our sponsors are filling that void for the year of 2011, by hosting the “Cruisin’ Back to School!” Car Show and Charity Event.

Florida Lottery Has Two Huge Jackpot Drawings Tonight

Florida Lottery Has Two Huge Jackpot Drawings Tonight

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Yes, the chances of hitting either jackpot are very very slim. But for a dollar a piece you can get in on both the Florida Lotto and Powerball drawings. Tonight's Powerball jackpot, which is a national drawing, is up to $160 million.

Our state's very own lottery, the Florida Lotto, is now up to $34 million.

Neither are records on their own, but, "What's unusual is that we have such a high jackpot on Lotto at the same time there is a high Powerball jackpot," said Florida Lottery Jacksonville district manager Steven Galaydick.

Right now the $160 million Powerball prize is the highest in the country, edging out the other very large MegaMillions prize ($99 million).
