On February 14th, The Friendship Initiative, an organization built on the core values of compassion, outreach and friendship, lost two of our dedicated teenage volunteers, Jaime Guttenberg and Gina Montalto in the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

On June 2nd, The Friendship Initiative will hold its first annual gala event “An Evening with Friends” to honor the lives of Jaime and Gina and celebrate the love and friendship that brings children with special needs and neuro-typical children together.

Proceeds from the evening will be donated to The Friendship Initiative’s scholarship fund in Jaime and Gina’s names. Scholarships will be presented to TFI volunteers and participants who teamed with Gina and Jaime and who exhibit the kind of compassion, friendship and commitment that these two young ladies exhibited each day of their lives.

Please join us for a night of dinner, dancing, silent auction and scholarship award presentations. Learn about the love that Jaime and Gina spread and see for yourself the results that this incredible organization has had on kids throughout South Florida.

When friendships form, magic happens.
