The third annual Waterway Soirée and Yacht Hop, which took place dockside at Bahia Mar in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on 20th May, raised $205,000 for the Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Centre (CDTC).
More than 450 guests attended the non-profit’s signature event, including yachting enthusiasts, members of the marine industry, prominent community and business leaders, and families assisted by the CDTC.
Attendees enjoyed an unforgettable evening aboard one of 10 luxurious motor yachts, savouring custom-prepared dishes from South Florida’s finest restaurants against the glittering backdrop of the Bahia Mar Yachting Centre.
Following dinner, guests embarked on a festive sold-out Intracoastal Waterway party cruise under the stars with an open bar, dessert, and dancing to live music and DJ, compliments of the Waterway Soirée entertainment sponsor, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
The yacht hop and waterway cruise was created to raise much needed funds for the CDTC, a not-for-profit organisation that serves more than 11,000 children with special healthcare needs in Broward County. Part of the $205,000 raised included a generous $40,000 match from the Mary Jane Harlow Charitable Trust.
As a facility of Broward Health, CDTC’s mission is to promote the optimal health and wellbeing of children with special health needs by providing comprehensive prevention, intervention and treatment services within a medical home environment.
