The fun-filled day involved 32 golfers who played a morning round of 18 holes followed by a delicious catered buffet lunch at the prestigious Fort Lauderdale Country Club. Participating individual golfers were challenged to raise a minimum of $2,000 each from their business associates, friends and family members, while corporate foursomes were tasked to raise a minimum of $5,000. In addition, 11 “virtual golfers” participated by raising funds for but not competing in the event.
On Friday, May 29, more than 350 business and community leaders joined the Broward Partnership to celebrate 16 years of opening doors to possibilities for more than 21,000 men, women and children experiencing homelessness in Broward County at the annual Salute to Leadership Gala.

Entertained throughout the evening by the R&B sounds of the Valerie Tyson Band, guests enjoyed a cocktail reception while bidding on auction items, which was then followed by dinner and an awards ceremony.
