JAFCO Celebrates its 25th Anniversary
More than 330 guests attended JAFCO’s Live, Laugh, Lunch event at Jungle Island’s Bloom Ballroom. The committee and community raised over $100,000 which goes directly to help abused and neglected children and those with developmental disabilities. The luncheon was co-chaired by Heather Katzen Sosler and Elyssa Lewis. This event also honored all the JAFCO chapter presidents from Miami to North Palm Beach to the Northeast for their dedication in raising awareness and funds to help the children. During the luncheon, JAFCO welcomed eight new members into the distinguished Godparent Circle, as well as two new Godparents who made lifetime commitments. The Godparent Circle and the Circle of Hope include donors who pledge to spiritually adopt all the children JAFCO serves in its group home, emergency shelter, family preservation and developmental disability programs.
