Event description
Andrew Joseph III Memorial Weekend Annual Gala

About this event

Andrew Joseph III was only 14 on February 7, 2014 when he attended the school-sponsored student day at the Florida State Fair. What should have been a night full of memories turned out to be his last when AJIII was detained by law enforcement, despite having done no wrong-doing. While in custody, he was searched and photographed before being transported out of the Fair by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. He was left abandoned near a dark busy highway where he was tragically struck by a car while attempting to return to his designated pick-up point. No one from the Fairgrounds nor the Sheriff's Office had made any attempts to contact AJIII's parents, despite having been a minor in custody. This was an act of negligence that could have been avoided.

Special Guest Keynote Speaker: Eva Marcille, America's Top Model season three winner and Real Housewives of Atlanta Star, will be our keynote speaker. We're excited to have her attend our event! Join us so you can hear what she has to say!
