Judges voted J.mark's best Sips & sliders at sunset – a south florida slider cook-off – winner announced J. Mark's Fort Lauderdale Hosted the Biggest Slider Showdown on Las Olas – Proceeds Benefited the Jack & Jill Children's Center
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (May 13, 2011) – J.MARK'S, a trendy and sophisticated restaurant, attended Sips & Sliders at Sunset, with proceeds benefiting the Jack & Jill Children's Center. All local "Slider Specialists" were invited to answer the old question – who has the best slider in town? A challenge was extended to Fort Lauderdale restaurants and many answered! Seventeen well known eateries rose to the challenge where they created their version of the ultimate slider. Though creative and very tasteful, only one restaurant could take the crown of culinary slider master; J. Mark's restaurant took first place overall with a Slow Roasted Prime Rib Slider.
J.Mark's might have blown everyone away with their delicious Slow Roasted Prime Rib Slider but they also offer mouthwatering Mini Burger and Sushi Grade Ahi Tuna Sliders. If you still haven't been to a J.Mark's Restaurant location (In Pompano Beach or Ft. Lauderdale) what are you waiting for? From the earthy décor and romantic ambience to friendly staff and amazing food, you will be sure to find countless things to love about J.Mark's. These two restaurants are locally owned and operated by Steven Mark Wilson and his team.
Proceeds from the event benefited the Jack & Jill Children's Center, a non-profit organization that offers an accredited program which supports the intellectual, emotional, physical and social development of young children. It was founded in 1942 and has evolved into a community-based program with a community-based board of directors. Over the years, Jack & Jill has provided more than 13,000 children 1 million hours of child care. Its mission is to break the cycle of poverty for children of lower income working families in Broward County through the provision of family-oriented child care services and family intervention and support.
