We’re Heading to Jacksonville!

What better way to wrap up another fantastic year of conventions than by spending it in sunny Florida for #SPNJAX? It might not be “sand between our toes” weather (or maybe it is? we don’t judge) but it’s sure to be a great time. Fans will convene at the lovely Hyatt Regency Jacksonville this weekend to meet their favorite Supernatural stars, reunite with friends, and help support our local partner organization, Youth Crisis Center.

Today, they are one of the largest and best-known providers of services and support for families facing divorce, homelessness, relocation, loss of life, and abuse. YCC services include short term crisis care, mental health counseling, skills-based group training, and transitional living services program for children, teens, young adults, and their families.
