The experience  featured signature hors d'oeuvres and a buffet with live culinary creations by Chef Gregg Salman and the McFatter Culinary School with all foods donated by Freshpoint - A One A Produce & Dairy. 

Guests were able to purchase the docorations that were on the "grounds" of this beautiful home giving the guests a "special" way to raise more funds for the Special Olympics.

No holiday party would be perfect withou a few open bars and holiday shopping with a bountiful silent auction featuring trips, sports tickets and memorabilia, jewelry and more.  Event chairs are Linda Spaulding White, Leslie Fischer & Debra Lieberman.  Proceeds from this event benefit The Special Olympics - Broward County.
