If you have an idea, we want to give you money!! The creators of Jaxsons Night Market and Jax Truckies have partnered with One Spark to host a joint event combining Food Fun(d) with a Creator meetup on December 9th and applicants are being sought to pitch an idea to a group of people and win a crowdfunded pot of money.

One Creator from six categories (Art, Education, Music, Health & Science, Social Good and Technology) will have five minutes to pitch an idea to a group of attendees who will vote on their favorite Project. The top-voted Creator will receive the entire pot of admission fees (admission is only $1 per person) and One Spark will even match that amount up to $500!

What’s more, attendees will also have access to food trucks, a full bar, and a performance from the Jonny Morgan Band!

The last Food Fun(d) winner, Vagabond Coffee, used their winnings to help open a fantastic mobile coffee barista in downtown Jacksonville.

"The impact on Vagabond Coffee? was massive. It helped to establish a relationship with The Barnett?, where we will be opening our flagship location. I am so grateful for the exposure and doors that were opened from being involved with Food Fun(d)."
-Will Morgan from Vagabond Coffee, on winning the first Food Fun(d).
