As an active participant in my community, I believe in the importance of giving back. That’s why I’ll be one of the many culinary partners at this year’s JA World Uncorked event.
The Uncorked Experience is like no other and will excite the senses with mouth-watering bites, like my jumbo scallop ceviche, luxury wines & spirits, an array of craft beers and delicious desserts from South Florida’s best culinary establishments.
JA World Uncorked was created in 2009 by the Circle of Wise Women in an attempt to raise $100,000 for Junior Achievement of South Florida, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preparing and inspiring K-12 students to succeed in a global economy by focusing on entrepreneurship, financial literacy and workplace readiness. The Circle of Wise Women combined their commitment to education with JA World’s Huizenga Center to create this lavish “Fork & Cork” affair.
Beginning with a handsome donation from Circle member Lorraine Thomas, JA World Uncorked has become a key fundraising event for Junior Achievement of South Florida. Over two million dollars has been raised for JA’s education programs and summer camp since the Circle’s first initiatives five years ago. With your support, the Wise Women can continue to positively impact the children of JA.
I invite you to join me and Bar Stache 1920’s Drinking Den the evening of Saturday, January 24, 2015 at the Broward College Huizenga Center to take part in JA World Uncorked! Come mingle and dance with friends, sip on intriguing drinks sponsored by Premier Beverage, indulge in a “Dessert Bash” and culinary creations from top chefs, and bid on auction and raffle prizes – all while raising money for a worthy cause!
I hope to see you there!
