Jewish Adoption Foster Care Options (JAFCO) recently hosted its 14th annual gala. The Motown Memories-themed affair took place at Turnberry Isle Resort in Aventura. At the event JAFCO presented the prestigious Jacob’s Ladder Award for Child Advocacy to: Glenda and Ronald Krongold; Fern Lentini Manne and Stan Manne; Jessica and Harvey (of blessed memory) Jacobson; and corporate recipient BankUnited. The Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Sandra and Charlie Simon, who donated the seed money that originally helped JAFCO get started. Through the generous support and commitment of guests, the gala raised just under $500,000 for the children - $265,000 (net) from evening itself and the remainder from ten-year pledges from 11 new families who joined JAFCO's Godparent Circle.
