The Margarita Society
The Orlando Margarita Society was organized in 1983 as a non-profit organization to help needy children within our community. The original twenty-five Directors desired to create a process for friends to celebrate a special season, and yet, allow all to contribute towards a better Christmas for the under-privileged children of Central Florida. The Orlando Margarita Society Ball format was developed as a means to achieve this goal. From its humble start of having just a few hundred guests and a menu of potato chips and dip, the Orlando Margarita Ball has blossomed into the most successful event of its kind in the Southeast. During the past two decades, the Margarita Society along with the thoughtful generosity of invited guests, has furnished over one hundred thousand gifts to the needy of children Central Florida. Jonathan Rose is proud to serve as President of The Orlando Margarita Society as well as a member of Florida Citrus Sports, which pursues various philanthropic endeavors.
Jonathan Rose deeply values the communities he serves, and he demonstrates his commitment by serving as a director of the Orlando Margarita Society and by supporting Florida’s Voting Restoration Amendment.
