Uncorked A-Z: In 2010, the Circle of Wise Women created a signature event with the goal of raising up to $100,000/00 annually for Junior Achievement of South Florida. Using the education platform from JASF, combined with the 60,000 square foot facility known as JA World Huizenga Center, JA World Uncorked was born. Check out our event videos for the scoop 2013 and 2014.

Starting a generous donation from Circle member Lorraine Thomas, founding Grand Cru sponsor, JA World Uncorked has become a cornerstone JA fundraising event. Serving as a catalyst, it has enabled the Circle of Wise Women to raise over $2 million dollars to date for Junior Achievement of South Florida’s educational programs and Summer Camp.
