The 28th anniversary of Informed Families/The Florida Family Partnership’s Annual Fundraising Dinner at Joe’s Stone Crab Restaurant will be celebrated with stone crabs, generous donors and celebrity sightings.

On May 13th, a pre-dinner social will kick-off the event at 6:30 p.m. A surprise group will lead party-goers into the dinner at 7:30 p.m., where guests will enjoy Joe’s signature dishes and legendary service, said Co-Chairs Ivette & John Hofmann and Neca Logan. Peggy B. Sapp, president and CEO of Informed Families/The Florida Family Partnership, credits community support with enabling the organization to reach so many families across Florida.

“Every year, we benefit from an outpouring of generosity from families who care about educating and nurturing their children,” said Sapp. “It’s hard to believe it’s been 28 years since Informed Families/The Florida Family Partnership joined with Joe’s Stone Crab Restaurant to hold this wonderful event, raising money to prevent drug use and underage drinking. Now, many of the children of our original supporters are parents themselves and our prevention programs are reaching this next generation.”
