JAFCO will host its 16th annual gala dedicated to raising funds for abused, neglected and children with developmental disabilities in South Florida.Â This year’s event, chaired by Carol and Stephen Winig along with Nanci and Stephen Beyer, is black-tie featuring a carnival and cocktail reception, fine dining, silent auction, 8-piece band, dancing and a heartwarming presentation about JAFCO’s work.Â During the gala, JAFCO will present the Jacob’s Ladder Award for Child Advocacy to: Martha and Melvin Aronson, Tami and Perry Isenberg, and Nancy and Alfred Katzin. The Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to Claire and Gerald Manowitz.
The generosity and commitment of the honorees have enabled JAFCO to provide care and services to children currently under JAFCO’s auspices and have aided more than 4,000 children since the organization’s inception in 1992.Â All proceeds will benefit JAFCO, a nonprofit organization licensed by the state of Florida’s Department of Children and Family Services to serve abused, neglected, homeless, at-risk and developmentally disabled children in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.
Events like the gala help JAFCO serve its mission to provide safety, love and security to abused children through its many programs including: family preservation, foster care, adoption, mentoring, group homes, emergency care and crisis centers. Individual tickets are $300.Â For more information, contact Janet Epstein at 954-315-8696 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
