Studio 54 Reinvented Event to Benefit Flite Center 

The iconic Studio 54 nightclub in New York City will be the inspiration for a fundraising event to benefit the Flite Center, a Fort Lauderdale-based nonprofit that provides services for youth aging out of foster care and other vulnerable youth populations. “Scene: Studio 54 Reinvented” will occur from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, May 19 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. 

This immersive time-traveling experience, with a modern twist, will allow guests to dance the night away to timeless hits and enjoy entertainment, decadent bites and creative libations. Special celebrity impersonators, including Cher, Liza Minnelli, and Andy Warhol, will also be on-hand to enhance the excitement of the evening. After the event, guests can continue the party at Daer Nightclub or choose to explore the many amenities of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

“Studio 54 Reinvented’ heralds a new tradition of bringing people together to support the mission of the Flite Center,” Christine Frederick, CEO of the Flite Center. “We are grateful to Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, as well as our other valued partners that are coming together to help us assist our community’s vulnerable youth.”

In addition to the entertainment, food and open bar, guests can participate in a balloon pop ($20 or $50 each) and raffle. Balloon prizes include certificates for dinner for two at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, a deluxe one-night stay at the landmark hotel itself, and more. Music lovers can vie for two authentic electric guitars signed by Ellen DeGeneres and Little Big Town, plus a “Party Like A Rock Star” guitar basket, including a stay at the hotel. The raffle will include a one Day Bora Bora Cabana Experience for up to 10 guests at the Guitar Hotel pool area, which includes rental, a $1,000 food and beverage credit, service fees and taxes (valued at over $5,200). Guests can also enter to win a custom jewelry creation from Daoud Jewelers.

“SCENE: Studio 54 Reinvented” co-chairs are Kim Sarni, managing director of South Florida Business & Wealth and Scott Dunseath, owner of Boutique Wonderland. The honorary chair is community activist Angelika Schanger. The host committee includes Michael Goodman, Susan Renneisen, Bo Franz, Nicole Covar, Kandace Lesher, Julio Roque, Chaz Warrington, Julie Williamson-Bresset, Milin Espino, Inez Romaguera, Kamilah Jones, Lorraine Shim and Jeanne Potthoff.

BIOGRAPHY

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.
