Philanthropy rocks! Broward Health Foundation’s black-tie ball to feature philanthropists raising funds
The Broward Health Foundation will host its black-tie ball, presented by One Beat CPR + AED, May 3 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood. Close to 600 guests are expected to attend the Philanthropy Rocks themed event, which will feature an evening of live music, cocktails, dinner, dancing, and silent and live auctions. Honorary chairs Lauren and Ryan Tannehill and Katie and Brandon Fields will be on hand for pictures and autographs during the VIP cocktail reception for sponsors prior to the main event at 7 p.m.
Guests will dance to the sounds of the ten-piece band Soul Survivors and enjoy Spirit of the Tsars vodka as part of the evening’s open bar.
On April 24, Alpine Jaguar will host an underwriter’s party at their luxury showroom for the event sponsors, where they will showcase the newest Jaguar F-Type sports car.
Proceeds from the “Salah Foundation Broward Health Ball” will benefit all hospitals in the Broward Health healthcare system. Programs and initiatives include improvements to the intensive care unit and emergency waiting areas at Broward Health Medical Center, the progressive care unit at Broward Health Imperial Point, cancer services at Broward Health North, women and children’s services at Broward Health Coral Springs and the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Chris Evert Children’s Hospital.
During the live auction, guests will have the opportunity to bid on jewelry from Levinson’s Jewelers, the chance to be a “Doctor for a Day” or embark on an excursion to Schooner Bay.
Sponsors include Aramark, Turner Construction, Northwestern Mutual, 21st Century Oncology, Pediatrix, Shepard Broad Law Center at Nova Southeastern University, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Skanska, Bank United, Kerney and Associates, Jones Lang Lasalle, Cushman and Wakefield, Aetna, Sunshine Health, North Broward Radiologists and Patriot National Insurance.
Among the evening’s highlights will be the paddle bid, where guests can make a tax deductible donation directly benefiting the renovation of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Chris Evert Children’s Hospital. A special video presentation about the NICU will precede the bidding, and guests will have the chance to name one of the 63 individual rooms in the planned renovation project.
