Holiday Party in the Park
Sponsored by JM Family Enterprises, this party is held before children leave school for winter break and is held in conjunction with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward’s Share the Seasons campaign, in which toys, clothes, gifts and necessities are collected for our high-need families and given as holiday presents. The holiday party is an opportunity for all of our children and families to get together, celebrate and learn about the different cultures our diverse group represents. For more information on Holiday Party in the Park, contact (954) 584-9990.
Following a one-year hiatus because of COVID, our organization's annual fishing tournament is set to 'sail' again on Saturday, August 14. At least two dozen boats are expected to board more than a hundred Littles and Bigs for a fishing and boating experience of a lifetime. This 41st edition of the event is presented by Moss Construction and supported by generous contributions from Atlantic Pacific Community Builders, Bahia Mar Marina, Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach, Fish Florida, GMS Law, JM Family Enterprises and Waterfront Times. The event was created, in 1979, by John Weller, a five-time cancer survivor who envisions every child in Broward having a full and enjoyable experience of our ocean.
