In February 2024, the Padrino family’s philanthropic gift to Broward College’s Student Success Fund supporting the Social Behavioral Sciences & Human Services (SBSHS) pathway further emphasized their commitment to nurturing the next generation of leaders. Their exemplary efforts inspire us all to embrace compassion and strive for collective progress.

Mario Padrino and his family are more than restaurateurs; they’re catalysts for positive change and community leadership. Their unwavering support for Broward College’s Social Behavioral Sciences and Human Services Pathway, including mentoring students and speaking at events like the Annual Pillars Conference, showcases their dedication to education and service.

On behalf of Broward College community, we extend our heartfelt thanks to Mario Padrino and his family for their enduring dedication and generosity. Their contributions are invaluable, and their legacy of service will continue to positively impact countless lives for years to come.
