For the upcoming event we will be working with our culinary partners to best showcase their establishment. A Chefs meeting on location at JA World Huizenga Center at Broward College will introduce you to the 60,000 square foot facility and give us the opportunity to discuss your participation.
Unique elements to our event are the Comfort Food Alley and Knife & Fork Alley featuring our “Chef Experience”, Uncorked! Dessert Bash and our Uncorked! Funky Buddha Brewery Pairings, new for 2014. More information about the facility will be made available upon request. Our media sponsors will be providing on-going coverage of our restaurants and Chefs. Other social media will include links to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Foursquare, Instagram and our unique site/blog.
We will be donating all left over food to our community partners. Their staff will collect the food at the end of the evening and transport in a refrigerated truck. We can donate in your individual company name or as a general donation from JA World Uncorked!

The Falcone Family BizTown and The Dave and Lorraine Thomas BizTown serves 5th graders, and The Patten Family Foundation Finance Park serves 8th graders. JA programs are significantly transforming how every local student views the world of work, free enterprise, and their possibilities for success.
