Rembert Farm

Alachua, FL 32615


Join us for Haven Hospice's 10th annual signature fundraising viva 2014event with over 600 attendees!  ViVA! will again be held at the beautiful Rembert Farms in Alachua, FL and will include fine cuisine from Blue Water Bay, auctions, live music and entertainment. This past year's carnival theme was a huge success and we are looking forward to making our 2014 event even bigger - ViVA! 2014 will be going on a safari!

Attendees will be in for lively and wild surprises as activities will be centered around the African-safari theme and will include a mask making booth, a bourbon tasting sponsored by Dorn's Liquors, fortune tellers and much more! The Harn Museum will host an African display during the event, custom-made Tervis Tumblers will be for sale and the University of Florida African Studies Department will provide a music and dance performance.

 Proceeds benefit unreimbursed programs and services provided by Haven Hospice in Gainesville and the surrounding communities.
