JIAMC Annual Tree Decorating Contest

December 1 - December 31

At Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) this season, you will see a number of beautifully decorated Christmas trees, sponsored by local businesses, in support of Dreams Come True of Jacksonville. Since 2003, the Jacksonville International Airport Management Council (JIAMC) has been supporting Dreams Come True by hosting a tree decorating contest during the holidays. Trees are located along the connector bridge between ticketing and the security checkpoint.

As you travel through JAX this season or picking up friends and family, please spend a few minutes to admire the trees, cast your vote (voting boxes will be located near the trees), and make a donation. You can visit www.JIAMC.com to donate and vote through PayPal. Every $1 donation counts as ONE VOTE (ex. a $5 donation = 5 votes for that tree). In addition, a Facebook competition is now live, and you can vote on your favorite tree through the JIAMC Facebook page

Voting will end on December 31, 2021. At the end of the contest, JIAMC will present the money raised to Dreams Come True at one of their monthly meetings. Every donation made throughout this contest will go directly toward the “Disney Dream” for 5-year-old Sloane.

Sloane was diagnosed with leukemia, more specifically AML in February 2020. Sloane went through rounds and rounds of chemotherapy and treatments. In 2020, Sloane underwent a bone marrow transplant with her sister, Charlotte, as her donor. Sloane ended her 100 days post-transplant in the fall of 202o. She is looking forward to traveling to Disney with her family in March 2022.
