“I’m re­ally ex­cited to co-chair this year’s Ghost Light So­ci­ety’s an­nual soiree – a fan­tas­tic event that helps to raise aware­ness and funds to sup­port the Broward Center’s arts-in-ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams for stu­dents,” Hoff­man said. “As a lo­cal en­tre­pre­neur, I think it’s ex­tremely im­por­tant to give back to our com­mu­nity, es­pe­cially with or­ga­ni­za­tions like the Ghost Light So­ci­ety that pro­vide pro­grams to en­gage our younger gen­er­a­tion.”

The Ghost Light So­ci­ety’s mis­sion is to en­gage and in­spire a new gen­er­a­tion of pa­trons to take an ac­tive role in pro­mot­ing, cel­e­brat­ing and sup­port­ing the per­form­ing arts. The Broward Center’s arts-in-ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams, con­sis­tently sup­ported by the Ghost Light So­ci­ety, pro­vides ac­tiv­i­ties that en­gage stu­dents of all ages and en­ables them to learn in the most ef­fec­tive and cre­ative ways.

Tick­ets to the soirée are $85 for Ghost Light So­ci­ety mem­bers and $105 for non-mem­bers. For more in­for­ma­tion, email ghost­light@broward­cen­ter.org or call Joanna Du­ran at 954-468-3284.
