Special Anniversary Brew to be Featured at JA World Uncorked
"We met with Junior Achievement to come up with a specialty crafted beer for their 60th Anniversary, which will be unveiled at the JA World Uncorked event." - Jon Linn, Funky Buddha BreweryBrand Director.
Junior Achievement of South Florida is fortunate to have so many dedicated volunteers like Bob Alden!
"My entire life has been about volunteering and philanthropy. JA gives me an opportunity to talk about the importance of financial literacy, which is not generally taught to today's youth in our schools. It fills a critical need." - Bob said.
