Deliver the Dream, a South Florida-based nonprofit that organizes retreat programs for families facing serious illness and crisis, has unveiled details of their 8th Annual Denim & Diamonds Gala. 


The Saturday, October 29th event begins at 6:00 p.m. at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort and Spa in Ft. Lauderdale.  The VEGAS-themed gala will feature a cocktail reception courtesy of GREY GOOSE Vodka, Fund-A-Dream and the 16-piece Bob Hoose Orchestra that returns for a second year. Guests can also look forward to a very special show with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Elvis Presley. The silent auction will have two exciting new features this year. The Mayors Jewelry Vault will give guests an opportunity to enter the vault and pick one of the 100 boxes on display. Each box will contain a prize ranging from silver cufflinks to beautiful diamond tennis bracelets. The silent auction will also boast BidPal technology. The devices are iPods that allow guests to view all the items in the silent auction without having to fight the crowds to bid or re-bid. Guests will also be notified every time they are outbid.


Sponsors include Coventry Health Care of Florida, Wells Fargo, Bluegreen Corporation, GREY GOOSE Vodka, 22 Squared, and Citrix Systems, Inc.


Gala tickets are $250 per person and $450 per couple. Sponsorships start at $3,500.  For more information, contact Christie Galeano at 954-564-3512 or visit
