JA Circle of Wise Women

The JA Circle of Wise Women was founded in May of 2009 at the home of Janet Davis. It originally started with 10 Founding Members and has since grown to more than 150 women

JA’s Circle of Wise Women believe that Junior Achievement programs are a springboard to show today’s youth their potential for success. Since its inception, the group has raised more than $4.5 million for Junior Achievement of South Florida.

The group’s signature event is the annual JA World Uncorked – a culinary showcase where guests sample gourmet bites prepared by leading South Florida chefs and sip premier wines, spirits, craft beers and cocktails from local vendors. In addition, the Circle of Wise Women host social gatherings throughout the year and participate in JA-related events, such as the Rosé Soirée.

Time is running out to buy tickets for Thursday's 2022 Rosé Soirée! We anticipate a good crowd of 200 leading ladies, and some gentlemen too, who support Junior Achievement of South Florida's mission!

www.jasouthflorida.org/events/rose-soiree/Donna Goldfarb - welcome to the JA Circle of Wise Women!

A few fun facts about Donna:

😀 Her happy place is in her yard with her orchids. She also dresses up as an elf every Christmas and volunteering her "presence" for nonprofits or schools in need of an elf.

😀 One of her proudest accomplishments is publishing a children's book she wrote in college - "Liz the Ladybug Without Any Dots".

😀 Some advice for her 17-year-old self, "Know you can be whatever and whoever you want to be. Find what you are passionate about and figure out how to monetize that passion to sustain you throughout life. Find a female mentor. Someone to listen and bounce back ideas. You are special just the way you are. Just be the best you can be."

😀 Her favorite quote and mantra in life: "As my Mom has always told me 'This too shall pass'. 'Promise me you’ll always remember: you’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.' Winne-the-Pooh"

Donna join nearly 30 other women leaders being pinned as Circle of Wise Women at Thursday's 2022 Rosé Soirée.
