Chambord Vodka Winterfest Black Tie Ball was held at Hard Rock Live, Saturday, December 4, 2010.
Guests enjoyed the JM Lexus Welcome Reception featuring an expanded Fidelity Investments Silent Auction. It was an enchanted evening for guests as they entered the cocktail party and enjoyed champagne infused with Chambord flavored Vodka, and browsed the wonderful silent auction items. The Ball is the most elegant of the Winterfest festivities and by far the highlight of Fort Lauderdale’s social season. Guests bid on packages in the Fidelity Investments Silent Auction. The Auction featured over 200 amazing items to choose from. A live auction took place inside the ballroom with items such as a 2011 JM Lexus IS 250, Wine Estate Vacation from Premier Beverage and a shopping spree from Carroll’s Jewelers.
The decor set the mood for the "Dancing Though the Decades" theme of the 2010 Winterfest Parade, with entertainers doing everything from hip-hop to the popular disco dancing in cages suspended above the dance floor. The Winterfest gala is the largest holiday gala in Fort Lauderdale, attendees dressed in formal wear danced the night away.
Entertainment was provided by Seminole Hard Rock featuring SixthStar Entertainment.
