Channel 4 came to telecast live…adding to the excitement…and if that wasn’t enough…their were auctions….Chinese auction items ranging from Chamber member’s restaurants and businesses…with coveted items…for silent auction…including a  ride on the Good year Blimp…and a Hotel stay…..

And at the end of the evening…. all who came should also know that the money raised through the proceeds of this remarkable evening went toward a scholarship for a student enrolled in the Culinary Arts program at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale….
