Annual ‘Christmas in July’ event to be held July 25

The Second Annual “Christmas in July” social networking and non-profit fundraiser, honoring Jayne Lynda Free, who passed away from cancer, will be held July 25 at the Comfort Inn Oceanfront in Jacksonville Beach from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Hosted by her “adopted” brother, Tony Hanneken, the annual “Christmas in July” event—aptly titled so because it is held July 25 (on Jayne’s birthday)—carries on her desire to help others in need and continues her mission work, by raising funds and supporting the non-profit organization, Dare To Share (, an organization that helps provide educational, social, physical, and economic opportunities to children and families in Zimbabwe, as well as medical and health issues.

“Jayne was a full time missionary to Zimbabwe for more than six years,” saysHanneken. “She was like a sister to me, and her family became my ‘adopted’ family while I attended massage school, so this is just another way that I can honor her and her memory and support to a mission so important to her.”
