The 16th Annual Power Lunch to benefit Jack & Jill Children’s Center will be held on Thursday, September 29, 2016 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Global Grille, 301 E. Broward Blvd, Fort Lauderdale.

All proceeds from the Power Lunch help provide scholarships and family support for the children of Jack & Jill in the upcoming year. In recognition of their dedication to the Center, the Friend’s of Jack & Jill will honor Dex Imaging and Britt Sikes as their Corporate Honoree; The Bank of America Foundation as their Foundation Honoree; and Gene and Collette Herman as their Volunteer Honorees. Power lunch is led this year by Chairpersons Cindy Cast and Barbara Ryan.

Through contributions to the luncheon, parents or guardians can go to work with the peace of mind that their children will receive quality, early childhood education and nurturing care at the Center. For these parents, Jack & Jill is their greatest hope to offer a stable future for their families.

Individual tickets are $100.
