Jack & Jill Center to Host 16th Annual Flip Flops on the Docks


The Friends of Jack & Jill Center invite everyone to leave their heels and ties at home to attend their renowned signature event, the 16th Annual MEDNAX Flip Flops on the Docks presented by MOSS, at the newly renovated Lauderdale Yacht Club on Saturday, May 8 from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m.

This casual soirée overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway will feature relaxed tropical beach décor, delicious drinks, fabulous food, and live music on the docks at Lauderdale Yacht Club. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on luxurious items in live and virtual silent auctions, while enjoying the panoramic backdrop of Fort Lauderdale.

All proceeds from Flip Flops on the Docks will provide scholarships to low-income, working families in the community. These scholarships provide children and their families with high quality early childhood education and family intervention and support. Through their programs, Jack & Jill Center aims to break the barriers of social and educational inequity by providing quality education to all children, regardless of income, so that they may reach their greatest potential.

The Friends of Jack & Jill Center thank the sponsors for their generous support. MEDNAX is serving as the event’s Title Sponsor and MOSS is the Presenting Sponsor. Amerijet is the VIP Sponsor and the Premier Sponsor is Herman Construction.
