The Jay Uiberall Foundation honors the legacy of Memphis restaurateur Jay Uiberall by supporting causes near and dear to Jay’s heart.
In 2010 after the tragic death of a close friend and vendor of LEO Events, Principals Cindy & Kevin Brewer co-founded the Jay Uiberall Foundation (alongside John Pugliese, Sandy Robertson, Andie and Michael Uiberall...Jay's parents...and Jill and Scott Shanker...Jay's sister and her husband) which honors the legacy and memory of restaurateur and visionary Jay Uiberall by supporting and partnering with local youth and hospitality-industry organizations. The mission of JUF is to improve the lives of Memphians - primarily youth - by supporting programs that champion young people by granting funds to non-profits that seek to launch new and innovative programs that fulfill our vision to make a positive impact on the lives of our youth and young adults.

LEO Events Principals Cindy and Kevin Brewer are co-founders and board members of the JUF and LEO Events contributes over 450 volunteer man-hours annually to the organization for event, marketing and administrative services.
A new fundraiser, Memsgiving, will debut in November 2019. Memsgiving is geared toward the younger potential donor and supporter of JUF: Saturday, November 23, 2019, at Carolina Watershed, 141 E. Carolina Ave.
