The Pi­rates in Par­adise themed event will fea­ture six hon­orees, who will be rec­og­nized for their con­tri­bu­tions to the com­mu­nity.

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.
