Ed Ethridge Named ‘Chamber Hero’ by Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce
Ed Ethridge, award-winning video producer and founder of Ed Ethridge Productions, has been named “Chamber Hero” by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce for his work on behalf of the Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation.
Ed donated his company’s time and services to produce a branding video for JJCCF that will help the organization raise much-needed funds and awareness for families in crisis fighting childhood cancer. Giving back to the community is a core business tenet and personal value for the fifth generation Fort Lauderdale resident and father of two sons.
EEP interviewed more than 30 families, funders, social workers, doctors, volunteers and foundation employees at Broward Health Medical Center for the video, which will premiere on Saturday, November 17 at the Tree of Life Foundation’s “Walk In My Shoes” luncheon aboard the Holland American Line’s Ms. Eurodam docked at Port Everglades.
“We are touched by the amount of passion Ed and his team have brought to give the Foundation an essential and invaluable fundraising tool,” said Sandra Muvdi, founder, president and director of JJCCF. “Every dollar we raise helps children and family members survive cancer. People like Ed care about the needy and making our community a better place. We thank him from the bottom of our heart.”
Chamber Heroes are members of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber chosen monthly by the Non- Profit Committee in recognition for work done with non-profit member organizations. This assistance can be volunteer work, in-kind donations or cash contributions.
Jen Klaassens, Non-Profit Committee chair and vice president of programs for Wasie Foundation, said the work Ed has done for JJCCF exemplifies what it means to be a Chamber Hero.
“There are so many wonderful and creative ways that for-profit companies can choose to make a difference for non-profit organizations in South Florida,” she said. “What Ed has done for JJCCF will make all the difference in the world for children and families who might not have anywhere else to turn.”
