The Jay Uiberall Foundation honors the legacy of Memphis restaurateur and visionary, Jay Uiberall. Through support and partnership with several local industry and youth organizations, JUF supports causes near and dear to Jay’s heart, such as helping children, promoting Memphis and the downtown area, offering educational scholarships, and encouraging the values of mentoring and hard work.

A restaurateur and visionary, Jay was a leader in the Beale Street business community and co-owner of Automatic Slim’s and Alfred’s On Beale, Dyer’s, Ubee’s and Catering for You.

In just six short years, the Jay Uiberall Foundation has made a major difference in many lives within our community. From scholarships to flu shots to cooking programs, JUF is catering to those that serve us daily, sun up to sun down. And this is only the beginning—we’re cookin’ up even more plans through meaningful partnerships and programs. Please help us continue our mission by donating.
