On Saturday, November 3rd from 6-10PM at the Sheltair Hangar of the Pompano Beach Airpark, the Exchange Club of Pompano Beach will hold its 62nd Annual 150 Charity Dinner and Drawdown.  Last year’s dinner, “Jetset to Monte Carlo,” was such a fun and successful event that they are hosting it at the same venue but with a new theme of “A Night at the Races.”  It will be a Derby Party with betting on old horse races to win prizes.  There will be a premium open bar all night, buffet dinner, live band, dancing, TapSnap photo booth and contests for best hats and outfits.  Fundraising activities including handicapped horse races to bet on, 50/50 raffle, wine wagon, 150 draw-down, and live, silent and Chinese auctions.  One hundred percent of the proceeds will go towards local charities and community organizations such as: The Children’s Healing Institute, the Broward Children’s Center, the Boys and Girls Club, First Tee of Broward, Our Father’s House Soup Kitchen, Woodhouse, Dynamos, the DAV, Honor Flight and many more, along with providing student scholarships.
Last year’s event netted over $35,000 and we would like to increase it this year to $45,000 by building off the great feedback we received from attendees as this being one of the most fun and unique social fundraisers ever in the area.  The event is capped at 300 people and it sold out last year.  Tickets can be purchased online only for $150 at www.bidpal.net/nightattheraces  No tickets will be sold at the door, so please purchase them early.  Dress is Derby attire required.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available and the Exchange Club is accepting donations for their auctions to help promote your business.  The Exchange Club is a 501(c)3 non-profit service organization, which focuses on child abuse prevention, community service, student recognition and scholarships, and Americanism and Veteran’s support.
