Avast ye! Leadership Broward Foundation’s ‘Fun Lunch’ to be a swashbuckling affair
The Leadership Broward Foundation Inc. will host the 20th annual “Fun Lunch” April 30, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood. The Pirates in Paradise themed event will feature six honorees, who will be recognized for their contributions to the community.
This year’s “Treasures of Broward” are Mary Harris of BankUnited; Penelope Blair of U.S. Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management; Clinton Perkins of Broward Health; Marty Shuham of Shuham & Shuham; Kenny Stiles of Stiles Corporation; and Pablo Urquilla of the BB&T Center. The co-chairwomen for the event are Jen Klaassens, Ginny Miller, Susan Renneisen and Lisa Scott Founds.
“The ‘Fun Lunch’ is a spirited, lively recognition of some of our community’s unsung leaders,” said Laurie Sallarulo, CEO of Leadership Broward Foundation Inc. “It’s an awards luncheon with a twist, honoring the best of Leadership Broward’s leaders with comical tongue-in-cheek moments and fun memories.”
Two “treasure chest” prizes will include a five-day and four-night stay at a Hard Rock hotel in Punta Cana, Mexico, and a diamond necklace courtesy of Altieri Jewelers. Keys can be purchased for $50 to open one of the treasure chests and only 50 tickets per treasure chest will be sold. In addition, attendees can participate in the signature balloon raffle. Tickets are $20 per balloon and come with a guarantee to win a prize valued at $20 or more. Only 200 balloons will be sold.
Sponsors for the event include Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, The Wasie Foundation, Shuham & Shuham, Community Bank of Broward, Broward Alliance, Broward College, JM Family Enterprises, Captain Morgan and Crystal Head Vodka.
The “Fun Lunch” honors Leadership Broward alumni and members for their commitment to the organization and the community. Fellow Leadership Broward alumni nominate individuals and a selection committee made up of community leaders determines the honorees.
Tickets are $65 for Leadership Broward Foundation members, $75 for non-members and $45 for Emerge Broward members.
