4KIDS Announces Two Community Events in 2024

Hundreds of community leaders, advocates, and partners will help propel hope and healing in South Florida.

This year will be significant for 4KIDS as the nonprofit organization hosts two unique community events. The first event will be the Annual Galentine’s Brunch on Thursday, Feb. 8, where women across Broward County will come together. JAG Aero Solutions will present the event, which will take place at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in the Mary N. Porter Riverview Ballroom. The ballroom is located on the second level of the Huizenga Pavilion. It offers stunning views of Fort Lauderdale’s New River and downtown skyline, making it the perfect venue for the event. Since 2018, local businesses and community members have organized a ladies-only event. It aims to provide an afternoon filled with hope for the children and families served by 4KIDS.

“You can count on Galentines to be filled with women from across our community who share a heart to give back,” Katrina Robb says, the Senior Director of Partner Engagement and Marketing and Communications for 4KIDS, which provides family preservation efforts, foster care, residential programs for young adults, and trauma-informed therapy and training. “Not only do our guests get to enjoy a beautiful brunch filled with the spirit of Galentine’s, but they also get the chance to make a profound impact–it’s no wonder we see this event sell out year after year!” 

Business sponsorships and individual tickets are on sale now at 4kids.us/br/galentines.

4KIDS is also launching a new event named Culinary Takeoff on Friday, April 5. The event will be hosted at Banyan Air Service, Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport in South Florida. The event attendees will be able to relish in small plates and food stations from different restaurants and cafes across South Florida, all housed within one of Banyan’s private hangers. Following in the footsteps of the organization’s previous event, Galentine’s Culinary Takeoff is expected to leave a lasting impression on the attendees and positively influence the community.

Culinary Takeoff sponsorships are available now at 4KIDS.us/Takeoff.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
