Winterfest's Black Tie Ball set the surrealistic mood for this enchanted evening. Tagged as the largest holiday gala in Fort Lauderdale, the Ball was hosted in the ballroom at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino.   The Ball is always held a week before the boat parade.

Attendees dressed in formal wear danced and entertainment was provided by Seminole Hard Rock and CareerBuilder featuring SixthStar Entertainment. The festivities took place on Saturday, December 6th at 6:00 p.m. as guests enjoyed the JM Lexus Welcome Reception featuring an expanded Fidelity Investments Silent Auction.

Complimentary wine from Southern Wine and Spirits was provided prior to dinner as well as champagne as guest's entered the reception displayed in a magnificant ice sculpture.

The event then continued into the ballroom where guests enjoyed entertainment, dancing or "Rockin' The Night Aweigh", an elegant four-course dinner and Live Auction.
