Around eight months ago, I received an email from Sharon Arnold at the American Cancer Society explaining that, without the community stepping up, there would no longer be a World Golf Village Relay for Life supporting cancer research for the American Cancer Society. I forwarded that email out to Davidson Realty’s agents and to my surprise, Realtors Amy Anderson and Debra Pappas took the entire project on themselves. With the blood, sweat and tears of the amazing committee members, World Golf Village’s Relay for Life on Saturday, March 29, raised $7,000 in one day. A total of $29,135.90 was raised for the entire event.

Davidson Realty’s VP of Marketing Peyton Davidson and Marketing Coordinator Matt Burkhart had so much fun delivering grant checks to Palencia Elementary School, Wards Creek Elementary School, Pacetti Bay Middle School and Mill Creek Elementary School! The Davidson Cares’ checks were awarded for the inspiring educational grant request videos submitted by teachers and PTO members for the needs within the schools. Voting for the videos took place from January 24th -  February 28th and teachers, students, parents, friends and the community were allowed to vote once a day for their favorite video from each school. All four schools received a $1,000 grant for the videos with the most votes and Pacetti Bay got an additional $500 for their anti-bullying efforts due to the importance of the cause. Congratulations to all the winners!

Antonio’s Pizza & Grill, located off CR 13 past Outback Crab Shack, is quite the hidden gem. But World Golf Village residents know them for their family’s traditional homemade Italian sausage. I recently made my first of many trips to Antonio’s to try out what my World Golf Village neighbors have been raving about. I was not disappointed by the delicious food or the excellent service!

Davidson Realty President Sherry Davidson and I recently sat down with Emerald Homes’ New Home Consultant Katrina Watkins to learn more about Emerald Homes. Emerald’s exquisite model is right down the road from Davidson Realty’s office in the beautiful King & Bear Community in World Golf Village, so we were very interested to learn more about the company’s history, what other communities they’re building in and their customization process.

The rain didn’t stop our World Golf Village neighbors and friends from coming out to support the first annual Davidson Cares’ 5k & Kid’s Fun Run on Saturday, February 8th in World Golf Village! There were close to 100 runners that showed up in the rain, including a large group from Mill Creek Elementary school that had been training for the race for months (a big thank you to Mill Creek Elementary School’s Principal Amanda Riedl and Physical Education teacher Bob Larkin for their support). The kid’s games were a hit and Arthur Crofton from Lite 96.1 WEJZ did a wonderful job MC’ing the event. All in all, it was a great day raising money for our local schools, including Mill Creek Elementary, Wards Creek Elementary, Palencia Elementary and Pacetti Bay Middle School!

The Ice Plant Bar offers an experience like no other restaurant in our area. Its early 20th century vibe invites visitors to enjoy cocktails and delicious food the way it was in the early 1900s. Ice Plant focuses on fresh local ingredients and house-made juices and syrups to create unique cocktails that sit perfectly on the tongue. Their ice is carved daily from slow-frozen, filtered water and custom cut to fit any of their specialty drinks or spirits. Watching the bartenders craft the perfect drink is part of the experience! The cool, speak-easy atmosphere along with the friendly staff, exceptional food and creative drinks make for a perfect night out on the town!

On Saturdays in the fall we are always looking for a great place to watch the Florida Gators play football. There’s no better place than one of the local Jax Beach breweries, like Engine 15 Brewing Company. For the good of this blog, we decided to explore their vast selection of brews and check in with the co-owner, Luch Scremin, to see what all Engine 15 has to offer.
