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 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.
