“This year’s gala returns after a brief hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic and now we’re stronger and more resilient than ever,” Dr. Melanie Geddes says, president and CEO of LifeNet4Families. It’s not just a night of fun, it’s a powerful step towards building a brighter future for community members who need us the most in Broward County. “With the invaluable support of those who share our vision, we can create real change and foster a community where homelessness, hunger, and poverty are no longer barriers to a better life.”

The upcoming Casino Royale Annual Gala will be an exciting and memorable event, with all proceeds to provide shelter, meals, and essential support services to those experiencing homelessness and hunger. Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy various fun games during the cocktail reception at 6 p.m. as they step into the recreated world of a glamorous high-stakes casino. The event will feature live and silent auctions, with unique items for bid. Live entertainment and dinner will follow at 7 p.m. for an unforgettable evening. The event is black-tie-optional, and tickets are priced at $250 per person. Sponsorship opportunities are still available for those looking to support this worthy cause.
