KURTIS LOFTUS
Founder
Deck The Chairs 

Advertising executive and ad agency owner Kurtis Loftus had a vision to create an event to raise money for the Jacksonville Beach lifeguards. The Jacksonville Beach Lifeguard Station had lost its major funding, which had sustained the organization for years. As the event turned to reality, Jacksonville Beach lifeguard chairs (the symbol of ocean lifesaving) were transformed into works of lighted art. In 2013, the event had approximately ten lighted and decorated chairs. This year, Deck The Chairs has kicked into high gear.  Jacksonville Beach Deck The Chairs (JBDTC) is annual sculptural exhibit using the iconic chairs of the American Red Cross Life Saving Corps. Sponsored by local businesses and decorated by regional artists, the exhibit will be on display in downtown Jacksonville Beach throughout the month of December. 

Since 1919, the Meninak Club of Jacksonville has carved a unique role for itself in our community. Attracting top business, professional, military and civic leaders to its ranks, Meninak has long been a catalyst for strengthening bonds among influential people and for helping shape the future of the Jacksonville community.
    We choose to dedicate ourselves to the betterment of Northeast Florida, lending help where none is available, especially when enhancing the lives of children. Join us
