Black Tie & Blue Jeans Benefit Dinner and Auction

_________________________________________

     On Saturday, April 27th, 2019 Branches celebrated its 16th Annual Black Tie & Blue Jeans Benefit Dinner and Auction at the JW Marriott Marquis. Over 500 guests attended and helped raise over $400,000 for Branches’ programs which provide services and life-changing opportunities to help working families and their children break the cycle of generational poverty. 

     The event was chaired by Victoria & Jason Randolph and kicked off with a cocktail reception and a silent auction, followed by dinner and dancing, as well as an appeal and an exciting live auction led by Master of Ceremonies Mr. Ron Magill of Zoo Miami and Auctioneer & Board Member Mr. Scott Howard. The event also honored Marile & Jorge Luis Lopez, Esq. with the Trish and Dan Bell Community Empowerment Award for their dedicated support of our South Florida community. All proceeds from the appeal of that evening will support Branches’ Summer Shade Camp and all donations will be doubled thanks to a generous $1 for $1 Matching Grant provided by Trish and Dan Bell.
