“Fancy Jeans Spring Break Bash”
Raises Over $137,000 for the
Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation!

The Third Annual Fancy Jeans Spring Break Bash raised over $137,000 for local children in need fighting cancer. On Saturday, March 15, 2008, the Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation hosted the event which was sponsored by the Seminole Tribe of Florida and the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The reception, themed “reliving Fort Lauderdale’s famous Spring Breaks”, had over 360 guests in attendance, and took place at the poolside of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Guests had a good time dancing to the music of The Edge while being entertained by professional dancers wearing swimsuits from various decades, and acrobatic performers, including a “yellow haired girl” on stilts. Attendees had the opportunity to bid on more than 100 silent auction items. During the event, Jessica Cotto offered her personal and emotional testimony on stage describing how the Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation made a difference in her life during times of crisis while her son was fighting cancer. Alejandra Posada, a five year old previously assisted by the Foundation, drew the three winning raffle tickets. Plaques were awarded to Alexandra Nightingale and Mikaela Ballone for Youngest Most Outstanding Volunteers, to Larry Gettis for Most Outstanding Fundraising Volunteer and to Gregg Sjoquist for the Most Outstanding Volunteer of 2007. Sandra Muvdi, President and Founder, recognized all the events’ generous sponsors on stage including the top tier: Bloom, Gettis & Habib, P.A., Steve Savor, Perfumania, Scott McPherson, Innovative Benefits Consulting, Physicians Insurance Company, Sun-Sentinel, American Airlines, Premier Beverage, Stephens Distributing, Blue Martini and S.MARKGRAPHICS. At the conclusion of the evening, Ms. Muvdi was presented with a $25,000 donation by The Wasie Foundation which came as a surprise to all.

As per Muvdi, “the Fancy Jeans success was beyond my imagination. We raised almost double the amount raised at our last annual event. It wasn’t easy planning an event of this magnitude with a staff of just one (me), but an army of volunteers involved with the Foundation worked very hard along my side to make this event possible. The Foundation is fortunate to have such a nice and caring group of volunteers to help out. They are the Foundation’s greatest assets.”


Sponsors and guests express themselves about the Fancy Jeans event:

Susan Renneisen from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino: “Congratulations on the huge success and money you raised. We are honored to be part of it and so happy that your hard work and efforts paid off financially for the numerous children you will help.”

Michael Scaglione from Bayview Cadillac: “I can not express enough how honored I was to be a part of the Fancy Jeans event.”

The Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation has the relentless mission of giving hope and comfort to underprivileged children fighting cancer.

We help impoverished, sick children whose parents don’t have the financial means to pay for the required cancer care and treatment (check-ups/chemotherapy/radiation/operation). The children in need do not have health insurance, and receiving private donations is their only alternative for treatment and hope.

A child diagnosed with cancer today has a 70% chance of being alive and well five years from now. This fact is only true if the child’s family has the financial means needed to provide proper cancer care and treatment. Oftentimes money is the only obstacle for surviving cancer. Your donation will help give these children a chance to live.


Jessica June Children's Cancer Foundation hosted a Spring Fling Party themed "Loosen Up Your Buttons". Not only was the party a huge success, it was also sponsored by the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 and held at the Pelican Landing. 100% of the proceeds raised will benefit underprivileged children with cancer living in South Florida. Jessica June Children's Cancer Foundation is located in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Florida
