Karrissa Wade: Orlando Vigil and Fundraiser from Jax

June 17, 2016 0 comments Open printer friendly version of this article Print Article

In response to the awful mass shootings in Orlando, Jacksonville citizens responded with grief, love, support and money to the survivors. Karrissa Wade organized and hosted a series of fundraisers and vigils for Orlando, and TVJax and MetroJacksonville were on hand for the first of them at Hamburger Mary's--whose tradition for charitable work is titanic. We caught some pretty poignant reactions and footage of people at the event. Grab a kleenex and join us after the jump.
