Delores Barr Weaver

Trailblazing philanthropist Delores Barr Weaver has done it again.

Weaver, the original co-owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars, has established a $20 million endowed fund at The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida, adding to her already legendary history of giving back to the Jacksonville area and beyond.

We speak with Delores Barr Weaver and Nina Waters, president of The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida, about her latest efforts to support local nonprofits.

March Against Fossil Fuels

An event in St. Augustine this weekend is part of the #BreakFree 2016 movement, a two-week series of actions around the globe encouraging the world to wean itself off fossil fuel.

The “March for Future Generations Rally” is set for Sunday, beginning at the historic Bridge of Lions.

The march was organized by several environmentalist groups in St. Augustine, including the Matanzas Riverkeeper and the Environmental Youth Council.

Bill Hamilton of the Environmental Youth Council joins us with a preview of the rally.

In this month's edition of the First Coast Connect Book Club, book blogger Stacey Goldring stops by to discuss Marlon James' novel "A Brief History of Seven Killings."
