Ghouls Ahoy

Over $63,000 Booty Raised For 2-1-1 Broward

On Monday, October 30th, the Signature Grand was transformed into Blackbeard’s Ball for the 16th Annual Signature Grand Ghoul. Benefitting 2-1-1 Broward, the event was hosted by former Miami Dolphins wide receiver O.J. McDuffie and Kavita Channe from VIP TV. More than 600 attendees, including Miami Dolphins alumni, local celebrities and notables gathered for a night of music, dancing, cocktails and costumes to raise a grand total of over $63,000 for 2-1-1 Broward. Broward County’s 2-1-1 hotline connects residents with trained crisis specialists who assess the caller’s situation and provide the link to available community resources. NFL alumni who were in attendance included Kerry Glenn, Mark Higgs, Orande Gadsden, Ki-Jana Carter, Frank Boudreaux, Brian “Bo” O’Neil, Larry Chester, Lamonte Coleman, Darrell Fullington, and Jamar Newsome.
