Yacht Rendezvous Event to Raise Money for Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County

The 33rd Annual Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County (BGCBC) Yacht Rendezvous will gather luxurious yachts together for one of the most spectacular yachting events in the world. It was founded by Rita and Rick Case and lasts from Nov. 4 to Nov. 6 at the Fisher Island Club in Miami Beach. The weekend features a formal Black Tie Gala and a Costume and Dance Party to help raise money for the Boys & Girls Club, which provides after-school programming to children.

“The Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County’s Yacht Rendezvous is one of the largest gatherings of mega-yachts for charity in the world,” says Matt Organ, co-CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County. “All dollars raised directly benefit the youth attending the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County. To date, the event has raised more than $30 million for our organization and the more than 12,000 at-risk youth it serves. The BGCBC is forever grateful to Rita & Rick Case for creating and developing this mega event three decades ago.”

The Fisher Island Marina is capable of handling over 20 yachts. Guests will choose their accommodations, including the option to spend the weekend on their ship on Fisher Island or at the Marriott Stanton, where they can access the resort’s amenities featuring spa retreats, golf, tennis and pool and beach access.

On Fisher Island, the weekend kicks off Thursday, Nov. 4, with a VIP Welcome Reception. The Ports of Call “Costume and Dance Party” occurs on Friday, Nov. 5, where guests dress up in costumes and dance all night on Fisher Island. On Saturday, Nov. 6, guests can enjoy activities with Boys & Girls Clubs members during the daytime and a formal Black Tie Gala at night with a live performance by Colbie Caillat, a two-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter. 

The gala will also feature the induction of philanthropist Larry DeGeorge into the Dream Makers Society. Dream Makers inductees are individuals who have established a long-term commitment to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County for at least 10 years, have played a vital role in developing a program or event and have contributed over $1 million. Dream Makers Society members include Felix Sabates, Rita and Rick Case, Florence & Lawrence J. DeGeorge, Marti and Wayne Huizenga, James E. McDonnell IV, Linda & Douglas Von Allmen, Mary Anne and Richard Kull, Christine Lynn, Terry Taylor and Deborah and Gary Wendt and Christy amd& Larry Hierholzer.

“Helping one of the most viable nonprofit organizations in South Florida, The Boys & Girls of Broward County, to take care of our youth is the greatest way to give back,” DeGeorge says.

Editor-in-Chief

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.
