The Friends of Jack & Jill to Present the 23rd Annual Power Lunch

The Friends of Jack & Jill Center – a support group of volunteers committed to developing community awareness, fundraising and program assistance for Jack & Jill Center’s children and their families – is honored to host the 23rd Annual Power Lunch at First Baptist Downtown Event Center in Fort Lauderdale on Thursday, Sept. 26, at 11:30 a.m. Neki Mohan, the vice president of Visit Lauderdale, will serve as the master of ceremonies.

The event pays tribute to special and outstanding honorees in the South Florida community who have helped The Friends of Jack & Jill Center raise over $6.5 million for high-need children and families since its inception in 1999. Over 300 business professionals in Broward County are anticipated to attend the 23rd Annual Power Lunch.


In recognition of their dedication to Jack & Jill Center, the luncheon will honor Greg Young, known as Greg the Barber, as the volunteer honoree, Holman Enterprises as the philanthropic organization honoree and Stephen Distributing as the corporate honoree. These awards are bestowed to those who have gone above and beyond through their contributions and service to the Jack & Jill Center.


The proceeds from the event will benefit Jack & Jill Center’s mission to strengthen children and families through innovative education, supportive programming and community engagement. Jack & Jill Center supports children of high-need working families through quality early childhood education, elementary education, family strengthening program and HEALTH Program to ensure every child and family has the tools they need to be successful. Jack & Jill Center has served 30,000 children and families in South Florida since 1942.
