Branches (formerly South Florida Urban Ministries) is celebrating its 10th Annual Black Tie & Blue Jeans benefit dinner and auction on Friday, April 19th, 2013 at the Trump Doral Golf Resort and Spa. The event will be held from 6pm to 10:30pm and about 400 guests are expected to attend.
The event kicks off with a cocktail reception and a silent auction, followed by dinner and dancing, as well as an appeal and an exciting live auction. All proceeds from the appeal will go towards the Branches’ Summer Shade camp program and all donations will be tripled since they are matched $2:$1 by an Anonymous Christian Family Foundation. Summer Shade provides free summer camp to over 300 children and youth and provides a fun and safe environment while offering enriching activities, field trips and academics in order to prevent summer learning loss.
