Lions, tigers and community fundraising. Oh, my! The Greater Fort Lauderdale Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. will host a family-friendly fundraiser from 7 – 11 p.m., on Nov. 11 at Young of Art museum, 751 SW 121 Ave., Davie, Fla.
A Family Affair: Wildin’ Out at the Museum will have unique and spectacular experiences for the whole community to enjoy. The organization of mothers will also recognize some of South Florida’s emerging young leaders as Little Big Shots.
Among the honorees are Taylor Moxey and Tyson Campbell. Taylor, 11, is an award-winning entrepreneur, author and philanthropist from Miami. She got her start baking and selling sweets out of a desire to purchase a toy. She most recently opened a free library in Miami’s Omni Park. When Tyson Campbell hit the West Miramar Optimist football field at age 6, everyone knew he had something special. The 17-year-old American Heritage student is the third-ranked cornerback in the nation and 20th among all football players nationwide.
Some of the other Little Big Shots who’ll be honored are: Zoe Terry, doll-creator; Ben Polsky, author; Jenee Cidel, speech and debate captain; and Rachel Rustein, jewelry-maker.
GFTL Jack and Jill has a history of giving back to the children of the community through its members’ time and donations. Its signature event this month (November) is designed to raise money for charities that support the health and well-being of children. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Jack and Jill of America Foundation, Inc. and two South Florida charities: Foundation of Sickle Cell Disease and Research and the Children’s Diagnostic and Treatment Center. Tickets for the Family Affair: Wildin’ Out at the Museum can be purchased at jackandjillaffair.eventbrite.com.
