Sip. Swirl. Savor. Indulge. Mix & Mingle. Dance. SMILE! Bid. Pop! to support Education is exactly what happened this past Saturday at the sold out JA World Uncorked event”
Uncorked A-Z: In 2009, the Circle of Wise Women created a signature event with the goal of raising $100,000 annually for Junior Achievement of South Florida. Using the education platform from JASFL, combined with the 60,000 square foot facility known as JA World Huizenga Center, JA World Uncorked! was born.
Starting with a commitment from Southern Wine and Spirits and a generous donation from Lorraine Thomas, founding member/Grand Cru sponsor, JA World Uncorked! has become a cornerstone JA fundraising event. Serving as a catalyst, it has enabled the Circle of Wise Women to raise over $1,550,000 to date.
We are excited to announce Premier Beverage joins JA’s top fundraiser as Presenting Sponsor. Circle of Wise Women event co-chairs are Rose Faraone and Lacey Brisson. The International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale’s Chef Director John “Jack” Kane returns as our Culinary Chair with Resident Chef Wes Bonner from Publix Apron’s Cooking School, Executive Chef Asher Roebuck from Timpano Italian Chophouse and Executive Chef Paula DaSilva from 3030 Ocean as our Chef Liaisons.
