To strengthen children and families through innovative education, supportive programming, and community engagement.
For every child and family to reach their full potential.
We are so thrilled to announce that Chris Hawk will carry on the Hawk legacy and represent Jack &Jill Center in 2022! Thank you Chris and Galleria Fort Lauderdale for this opportunity! The hottest event of the year, Men of Style, is on Thursday, December 1st from 6:00 to 9:00 PM at Galleria Fort Lauderdale.
Chris Hawk grew up in Maryland as the oldest of three boys. He is an avid soccer player and swimmer, competing in both at the varsity level. He majored in Philosophy at Boston College with a concentration in pre-medical studies. During the summers he worked as an ocean lifeguard in New Jersey, competing as a swimmer and rower. He fell in love with south Florida where he studied medicine at the University of Miami. He completed residency training in New York and then fellowship training in Miami, and now works as an interventional cardiologist in Palm Beach county with a private group: the Medical Specialists of the Palm Beaches. Outside of the hospital he can be found in the sand playing beach volleyball, or on a yoga mat getting stretchy.
Hurricane Ian may have slowed us down, but he didn’t stop us! Join the Friends of Jack & Jill Center at the 21st Annual Power Lunch on Thursday, January 19, 2023 as we pay tribute to several special and outstanding honorees in the community. Attended by over 250 business professionals in Broward County, this honor is bestowed to those who have gone above and beyond through their contributions and service to Jack & Jill Center. With your help, the Friends of Jack & Jill Center have raised $5 million for high-need children and families in our community since its inception in 2001. This would not be possible without supporters like you!

“I would like to extend sincere appreciation and gratitude on behalf of my family to Jack and Jill Children’s Center. They have been a beacon of hope within the community. They have so many activities and programs offered for families to learn and grow together. They are always around to lend an ear and shoulder to cry on if needed with a side of good advice. I would like to say thank you to Jack and Jill for taking such good care of my family.”
