In celebration of Friends of Foster Children Forever’s (FFCF) 12th Annual Boogie Bash fundraiser and the organization’s 20th anniversary, the night was transformed into a flamboyant flashback to the Roaring 20’s.
As guests arrived in their flapper dresses and gangster attire, they were greeted by the sensational Pzazz Dancers dressed in their best Gatsby threads, creating a party overflowing with energy and excitement. It all happened on Friday, March 22 at Grey Oaks Country Club in Naples.
The “ROAR into the 20’s with GATSBY” themed event had over 220 guests in attendance and raised over $420,000 to benefit FFCF’s one-on-one educational mentoring programs for local foster children. The special night included cocktails, dinner, dancing and an evening of live entertainment all produced by Pzazz Productions.
Celebrity emcees for the evening were PJ Fuerstman-Myer and Brian Roland. A captivating video was shown, underwritten by William C. Huff Companies, which gave guests a glimpse into a foster child’s life and the challenges they face each and every day. The FFCF mission is to focus on the children they serve by providing targeted educational and enrichment opportunities that allow each child to fulfill his or her potential.
The charitable organization works to fulfill the unmet needs of every child who enters or, is at risk of entering the foster care system in Collier, Hendry and Glades Counties.
Event chairs were Edee and Michael DeLuca and the presenting sponsors were HBK CPAs & Consultants and HBKS Wealth Advisors. Additional sponsors included NEST Multi-Facility Management, Children’s Network of Southwest Florida, First Florida Integrity Bank, Home-Tech, The Woodruff Institute, Naples Auto Donation Center, PJ Fuerstman-Meyer & Pzazz Productions, and Naples Daily News.
