~Signature Event Benefits Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center~
The third annual Waterway Soirée, one of Fort Lauderdale’s most popular events, is set for Saturday, May 20 at the Bahia Mar Resort & Yachting Center located at 801 Seabreeze Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.
The unforgettable and chic evening kicks-off dockside at 5:30 p.m. with a VIP cocktail party at the Captain’s Quarters, followed by an intimate evening aboard one of the many designated private yachts savoring custom-prepared dishes from South Florida’s finest chefs and restaurants. After a leisurely and memorable meal against a breathtaking sunset backdrop, guests will regroup and embark on a festive larger party yacht for an Intracoastal Waterway cruise with an open bar, dessert and dancing to live music and DJ.
The yacht hop and waterway cruise was created to raise much needed funds for Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center, a not-for-profit organization that serves more than 11,000 children with special healthcare needs in Broward County.
“After only two years the Waterway Soirée continues to grow exponentially and has quickly become our organization’s signature events,” said Dr. Ana Calderon-Randazzo, executive director for the Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center. “It is a tremendous evening and so much fun. We are grateful for the generosity and support from the yachting and marine industry, as well as all the community partners who support us.”
Individual tickets for the yacht hop, dinner and dessert cruise are $750. Yacht owners can enter their own boats and receive admission for up to 20 guests and all activities for $15,000. Similarly, several new yachts are available for groups of up to 20 guests for $15,000. For guests who wish to attend only the dessert cruise, tickets may be purchased for $100. All donations are tax deductible.
