Jack & Jill to “Light Up Downtown”

Fort Lauderdale— The 16th Annual STILES Light Up Downtown to benefit Jack & Jill Children’s Center will be held on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at The Plaza on Las Olas, 301 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale.

The spirit of the holidays will come alive at The Plaza on Las Olas complete with holiday inspired activities.  Children will be entertained with face painting, entertainers, games, and carnival rides while adults will have the opportunity to sample hors d’oeuvres and spirits.  The night will culminate with the lighting of a 30 foot tree in the plaza!  All proceeds from Light Up Downtown help provide scholarships and family support for the children of Jack & Jill in the upcoming year.

Through contributions from the event, 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 $85 for VIP Admission, $40 for General Admission and $15 Child Admission.  Sponsorships can be purchased which underwrite the cost of a child to attend Jack & Jill.  Sponsorships are available from $500 to $15,000.
