JA Business Hall of Fame Event Raises Over $1 Million

The proceeds will benefit the nonprofit’s educational programs

Junior Achievement of South Florida (JA) generated over $1 million during the 2022 JA Business Hall of Fame Event last month. The annual fundraiser is in its 32nd year, with the 2022 event inducting five community leaders into the JA Business Hall of Fame.

The inductees are chosen based on their impact in their respective industries by demonstrating vision, commitment to excellence, courage, bold leadership and social responsibility. The 2022 Business Hall of Fame honorees included Jon Antevy (e-Builder) and Ron Antevy (Trimble), Milton L. Jones (Milton Jones Development Corporation), Ramon Rodriguez (WithMyDoc, Inc.) and Mark Warren (International Materials LLC). Juliet Roulhac (Florida Power & Light) was honored with the Melissa Aiello Character Award. The Huizenga Lifetime Legacy Award was presented to Harry Patten (Patten Family Foundation). During his acceptance speech, Patten announced that he would donate up to a $500,000 match to JA.

The 260 attendees also enjoyed a 360-degree photo booth courtesy of the Warren Family Foundation, complimentary valet parking thanks to Rick Case Automotive Group and a dinner followed by impactful success stories given by our JA students.

The funds generated by the event will ensure JA meets its current fiscal year obligations and continues to empower tomorrow’s leaders by providing educational programs focused on business and finance.
