Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Society Scene - Broward - - Front Page -

It’s that time of the year for Footy’s 13th an­nual “Bub­bles & Bones” gala to ben­e­fit Here’s Help Inc., a non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion that caters to in­ner-city ado­les­cents bat­tling with sub­stance de­pen­dency and ad­dic­tion. The event will take place Oct. 25, from 6:30 to 11 p.m., at the Westin Diplo­mat Re­sort & Spa, 3555 S. Ocean Drive in Hol­ly­wood.

This year, Here’s Help will honor Mark and Robin Levin­son of Levin­son’s Jewel­ers for their con­tin­ued de­vo­tion and sup­port of the pro­gram.

The evening will be­gin with a cock­tail hour, fea­tur­ing world-class cham­pagnes and gourmet chicken wings (hence the event’s name). Mu­sic will be pro­vided by DJ 1 Tre, AKA Michael Marino, dur­ing the cock­tail hour.

More than 700 guests will also en­joy a sit-down din­ner, fol­lowed by a live per­for­mance by na­tional record­ing act Vil­lage Peo­ple. The night will con­clude with mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment by Jimmy Jam and the Jimmy Jam Dancers.

Guests are en­cour­aged to dress com­fort­ably for the night with lo­cal celebri­ties. The jeans and all that shim­mers theme sug­gests el­e­gant-ca­sual at­tire.

Hon­orary com­mit­tee mem­bers in­clude Jeb Bush, Emilio and Glo­ria Este­fan, K.C. (from K.C. & The Sun­shine Band), Dan and Claire Marino, Pat and Chris Ri­ley, and Jon Secada. Many for­mer and cur­rent Mi­ami Dol­phins, Mi­ami Heat and Mi­ami Mar­lins play­ers will also be in at­ten­dance to en­joy a night filled with cham­pagne, chicken wings and en­ter­tain­ment.

“What started as a pre-party for our an­nual ’Wing Ding’ fes­ti­val has re­ally turned into an amaz­ing fundrais­ing event for Here’s Help,” said John “Footy” Kross, CEO of Here’s Help Inc. “The monies we raise fund our en­rich­ment pro­grams, which make a world of dif­fer­ence in our stu­dents’ suc­cess.”

In ad­di­tion, the “Bub­bles & Bones” gala will in­clude live and silent auc­tions. A few lucky bid­ders will walk away with var­i­ous pack­ages, in­clud­ing va­ca­tion get­aways from San­dals & Beaches Re­sorts.
