4th Annual JA World Uncorked!

THE EVENT  The fourth annual “Fork & Cork Affair” hosted by Junior Achievement of South Florida’s Circle of Wise Women will create a culinary showcase where guests sample gourmet bites by leading South Florida chefs and savor premier wines, spirits and intriguing craft beers.  VIP sponsors will be treated to Club Red @Uncorked! sponsored by the Florida Panthers Foundation.

A Dessert Pairing Competition with students from The International Culinary School at The Art Institute Fort Lauderdale. 

THE CAUSE  Junior Achievement of South Florida’s Circle of Wise Women are education advocates who believe they can affect positive changes in students’ attitudes, performance and future outlook. Wise Women understand the need to transform how students view the world of work, personal finance, free enterprise and their own potential for success. Wise Women are committed to helping provide the resources necessary for Junior Achievement to offer a full range of programs that impart sound economic principles to youths from kindergarten through 12th grade. They achieve this through hands-on activities, providing financial support, and forging new partnerships for JA in the communities in which they live and work. Founded in May 2009, JA’s Circle of Wise Women  has contributed $1,750,000.00 to Junior Achievement’s programs to date, according to founding member and JA’s Director of Development Diana Metcalf.
