Fourth Annual Waterway Soirée, Fort Lauderdale’s Spectacular Yacht Hop and Dockside Dessert Party Set for Saturday, May 19

 Community Anchors Announced for Signature Event Which Benefits the Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center

  The fourth annual Waterway Soirée, the Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center’s signature event, is set for Saturday, May 19 at 5:00 p.m. at the Bahia Mar Resort & Yachting Center in Fort Lauderdale.

The Waterway Soirée has evolved into one of Fort Lauderdale’s most popular charity events thanks in large part to the generous support from community partners, especially within the yachting and marine industry.  The 2018 Waterway Soirée Community Anchor Honorees are Barry and Susan Somerstein and Ashley and Ed Brown with the Selfless Love Foundation.

“We are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support from the community,” said Dr. Ana Calderon Randazzo, Executive Director for Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center. “The Waterway Soirée is not only a lot of fun, it’s a beautiful and inspiring evening that helps us give our families the care and assistance they need to overcome the most challenging health care needs.”

The unforgettable and chic evening kicks-off dockside with a yacht hop featuring ten spectacular mega yachts. Guests later experience an intimate evening aboard one yacht where they are served sumptuous custom-prepared dinners from South Florida’s finest chefs and restaurants. After a leisurely and memorable meal against a breathtaking sunset backdrop, guests are invited to join a high-energy Dockside Dessert Party featuring an open bar, delicious sweets and dancing to live music and DJ.

A highlight of the evening is the live and silent auction which features one-of-a-kind items such as a South African Safari Expedition, Private Fishing Charter with Captain Morley, GT International Experience, Water Taxi journey for 100 guests, a Florida Panthers Experience and much more.

The Waterway Soirée benefits Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center, a not-for-profit organization serving nearly 12,000 children with special healthcare needs in Broward County. Every dollar raised provides exceptional medical care and social services to patients in CDTC’s Primary Care Clinics, Dental Clinic, and Medical Home programs.

Past Waterway Soirée Community Anchors include Kenny and Sandy Tate; Carolyn and Jeff Aronson; Skip and Paula Zimbalist and Bob and Susan Drinon, who nominated this year’s honorees.

Individual tickets for the yacht hop, dinner and dockside dessert party are $750.  Yacht owners can enter their own vessel and receive admission for up to 20 guests and all activities for $15,000.  Similarly, several yachts are available for groups of up to 20 guests for $15,000. For guests who wish to attend only the Dockside Dessert Party, tickets may be purchased for $100.  All donations are tax deductible.
