Press Release Summary: The Women's Committee of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami will host an annual benefit luncheon with lunch provided by Joe's Stone Crab in South Beach and attended by Miami's elite socialites.
Press Release Body: MIAMI, FL, August 26, 2008 - Miami's socialites and philanthropic leaders will convene on October 19th, 2008 for an annual benefit luncheon, "Jazz at Joes," at Joe's Stone Crab in South Beach to raise funds in support of the mentoring programs at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami (BBBS). Organized by the Women's Committee of BBBS of Greater Miami, the benefit event will be hosted by Luis Aguirre from WSVN's Deco Drive and will be well attended by some of Miami's most influential. With the support of the attendees, corporate sponsors, and the community at-large the fundraising goals will help BBBS of Greater Miami better serve its community as it moves forward into its fiftieth year of service to the Greater Miami area.
The annual "Jazz at Joes" signature fundraising benefit is in its fourth year of service and supported the mentoring programs at BBBS Greater Miami. These mentoring programs go on to serve local youth in ways never imagined. From a teen contemplating suicide to a child growing up in a single parent home without a positive male influence, these mentoring programs have played a significant role in turning around these young impressionable lives to give them a better sense of purpose. As a supporter of the event, corporate sponsors and attendees can play a vital role in ensuring that every child in the Greater Miami area who needs and yearns for the mentoring program can be served and paired up with qualified and committed mentors.
Several sponsorship and underwriting opportunities are available in support of the benefit luncheon. To play an active role in the community and join as a sponsor and secure reservations as an attendee, please contact Jennifer Schwartz at (305) 644-0066 ext. 294 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
