The evening started with a cocktail party and amazing auction and then guest entered the ballroom to dance to music that immediately got the place jumping.
Julia Dale sang the national anthem to a hushed crowd. Then the program consisted of a live auction, special recognition to "The Generals Club" members Tom Miller, Terry Stiles & Bob Case. All attending Generals Club members were escorted on to the floor by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County students. The Generals Club "has offered their members an opportunity to have hands-on construction experience" in many construction related fields. Another great group members, "Partners in Career Education", were also introduced to the guests. Co-Chairs for this new initiative are Dr. Doug Laurie & Debis Davis-Case.
