Florida Memorial University took fundraising to a comfortable setting as it began its Home Fundraiser initiative at the residence of school supporters Aaron and Burnadette Weeks, Esq.

The event was bolstered by support from the North Broward Chapter of The Links, which is taking FMU under its wing in a unique way this year. “The National Links initiative is to adopt a Historically Black College and University and nurture it,” said JoAnn Fletcher, President of the North Broward Links chapter.
