Humane Society of Broward County's "Passport to PAWS"Saturday, May 16, 6:30pm – Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale, 1 N Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd, Fort Lauderdale

The Humane Society of Broward County’s PAWS group hosts its annual themed event “Passport to PAWS” presented by The Gaddis Family Foundation and Yellow Cab Company — and with this year’s gala theme, “Boardwalk Empire,” it promises to be quite the extravaganza! The Passport to PAWS event always evokes a sense of traveling and this year they will “travel back” to the Boardwalk Empire days of the exciting 1920’s with its glitz, glamour, bootleg gin and mobsters. There will be gorgeous decor, flapper fashions, and party-time music and dance. Vintage cars will be on display to add even more nostalgia. Event Chairs Christine Forman, Margaret Meldeau and Lori Sisko have their committee hard at work ensuring that this trip back in time will be an evening to be remembered! Guests will enjoy dinner and dancing, a cocktail hour with silent auction, live auction with auctioneer Gordon Latz, and entertainment by the band Studio One. There will also be a prize drawing for the chance to win a Las Vegas getaway for four days and three nights at the Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Hotel with two tickets to see a show of the winner’s choice, $250 towards dinner or gambling and two roundtrip tickets on Southwest Airlines. Prize drawing tickets are $50 each or three for $100. Tickets are $250 per person. For more info or to purchase tickets, contact Jamie Profant at 954-266-6827 or @HumaneBroward
