The holiday spirit was abundant this past season, and the JAFCO Children’s Ability had much to celebrate during their annual Family Funday. Besides a delicious meal and a huge selection of toys, donated in part through a toy drive held by The Craig Zinn Automotive Group, famed artist Romero Britto unveiled one of his distinct sculptures at the facility.
During the festivities, an 8-foot tall monumental sculpture created by the world-renowned artist was unveiled. The colorful figure will adorn the entrance to the JAFCO Children’s Ability Center. The sculpture was generously donated by Craig and Martine Zinn of The Craig Zinn Automotive Group and represents the creative ability children have to design their future.
JAFCO was selected by Craig and Martine Zinn, and The Craig Zinn Automotive Group (CZAG) who own and operate Subaru of Pembroke Pines, as the 2017-2018 Subaru of Pembroke Pines “Share the Love Event” charity partner. Subaru of Pembroke Pines donated $250 of each vehicle sold or leased through January 2, 2018 to the JAFCO Children’s Ability Center.
“We are here with our hearts, we accept everyone, we appreciate what everyone does, this is all about sharing the love. We want the children and families served at the JAFCO Ability’s Center to be inspired by Britto’s art, the same way we are inspired by his art,” said Craig Zinn, founder and CEO, of The Craig Zinn Automotive Group.
JAFCO’s mission is to care for abused and neglected children and those with disabilities in the Jewish community and to work in partnership with families and the entire community. They believe that the care of children in our community is everyone’s responsibility, one they accept with joy, pride, and love. Giving every child a place to belong.
“Martine and Craig Zinn have shared the beauty of artist Romero Britto by dedicating this sculpture that will welcome each family as they enter the Ability Center that gives every child and their family a place to belong. In conjunction with the Subaru of Pembroke Pines ‘Share the Love Event’, we are able to receive life changing funds to support our programs and services thanks to their kind hearts and support,” said Randi Winter, philanthropy director at the JAFCO Children’s Ability Center.
