This year’s Scholars Breakfast will recognize scholarship recipients from foster, relative and non-relative care who have beat the odds and graduated from college within the last 12 months.

​​In addition, this year’s Breakfast will honor the 2022 Champions of Children whose interest, vision and generous support have significantly contributed to HANDY’s continued success.​

HANDY is an award-winning non-profit that provides life skills, education and a supportive community for Broward County children in foster and relative/nonrelative care.

HANDY was founded in 1985 by Ed Pudaloff, who wished to create something special to help abused and neglected children in the Broward County community. He reached out to two of his closest friends, Marti Huizenga and Kathy Jackson, for help. The three of them started fundraising committees and created scholarship funds, bought clothes for children and celebrated their birthdays. In the beginning, they had two well-known events, Easter for Kids and the Fashion Show, which went on for years before incorporating other events such as the Scholars Breakfast.
