Chefs Come Together to Raise Funds for Homelessness at Broward Partnership Event

The organization aims to empower those experiencing homelessness by promoting independence and self-worth through advocacy, housing and comprehensive services.

South Florida’s finest chefs and restaurants will unite to support a great cause on Sept. 30. Chefs Helping the Homeless, presented by Lauderdale BMW of Pembroke Pines, has been a yearly event since 2007 that has been captivating diners and supporting the mission of Broward Partnership to fight homelessness in the county.

“We are so excited about the opportunity to give back to a population that is often overlooked and marginalized,” Broward County Sheriff’s Office Colonel Josefa Benjamin says. “As a department, we have identified it is both greater to give than to receive, in addition, we remain committed to being a part of a mission that is bigger than us and to that end, it is our honor to serve alongside you. “

Guests at the event are welcomed with a cocktail reception, followed by a short gathering of table hosts who randomly select a number to present to their respective chauffeurs. The chauffeurs, who are the only ones aware of the restaurants corresponding to the numbers, keep the destination a secret and drive the guests in a luxurious limousine to one of our premier dining establishments. Besides enjoying exquisite cuisine, guests will be treated to a tableside visit from the Executive Chef, perfectly paired with wine.

Broward Partnership utilizes all the proceeds to support its essential programs such as healthcare, case management, housing placement, food, and other necessary services that aim to help individuals experiencing homelessness get back on their feet and find stable housing and employment.

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.
