Local celebrity Curtis Dvorak – our official emcee and auctioneer

“We are excited and happy to have local celebrity Curtis Dvorak as our Emcee and Auctioneer for the gala Friday evening”. Judi Zitiello
Former Jacksonville Jaguars mascot, Jaxson Deville,  past Good Morning Jacksonville correspondent and host of WTLV’s First Coast Living.
Dvorak is known for his years of high-risk stunts but now highlights his love for the First Coast in a way only he can. His unique style of humor and creative risks have brought a refreshing take to the morning news brand.
Townsend and Zitiello family friends, Curtis features local businesses, entertainment acts, and celebrity guests on ‘First Coast Living’, the original lifestyle show in the market, only on NBC 12.
Clearly a huge Jaguars supporter, Dvorak also loves the Beaches, is an avid golfer, and spends his free time playing all kinds of sports and seeking out any new adventure.
