JA Raised $110K at Recent “Ladies in Pink” Event
In its 5th year, the JA Circle of Wise Women Rosé Soirée event last week raised $110,000 for Junior Achievement of South Florida (JA) programs. The event was an experience for all, beginning with a rose petal, red carpet entrance to shopping, networking, appetizers by Silver Lining and sips of rose, provided by SipChanné, Bloomers Frozen Drinks and Breakthru Beverage Florida. The evening continued with sharing of JA students’ inspirational journeys, awarding of the Lorraine I. Thomas Girls Scholarships, pinning of 18 new Circle of Wise Women members and honoring the 2022 Woman of Wisdom (WOW), Sharon Gustafson-Florescue, Florescue Family Foundation. Sharon is fabulous, generous, funny and beautiful inside and out.
Special thanks to our event co-chairs, Yvette Birdsong, Melissa Milroy and Jennifer Starkey, Rosé sponsors, CWW members and guests for your generous contributions. Thanks to you, JA will continue to provide tens of thousands of youth with impactful programs that prepare them for the future and to support the goals and dreams of young female JA alumni!
If you missed the chance that night or couldn’t join us, there’s still an opportunity to get involved. Please consider becoming a member of this dynamic group or donating to the girls scholarship.
