Florida Hempfest 2019 is made possible by long-time Florida Resident, Rosemary Maseri. Rosemary has committed a lifetime of volunteer work for United Way, PTSA and personal advocacy for patient rights to access.

“My passion to help others began when I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2001. After losing my job because of my illness, I felt the need to dedicate my life to helping others whomhave similar situations in their life,” stated Rosemary. “And when presented with the opportunityto put the first Official Florida Hempfest in motion, I knew so many more people would have access to the education and information they need to help them find a better quality of life. Thatis what Florida Hempfest 2019 will be all about.”

This year’s event already secured sponsorship commitments from Florida’s top dispensaries, with Trulieve committing to the event’s Platinum Sponsor, providing support for the official opening ceremony, and support to patient and Hispanic discussion panels.
