Greater Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Hosts 16th Annual Grapes for Grades

Benefitting the Hollywood Florida Scholarship Foundation & the Broward Education Foundation Tools for Schools program.

It is with great pride that the Greater Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Hollywood Florida Scholarship Foundation (HFSF), presents the 16th Annual “Grapes for Grades”, a soirée of fine wine, silent auction, tantalizing food and the occasion to socialize with Hollywood’s movers and shakers!

The event is scheduled for Friday, September 28th, 2018, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Gallery of Amazing Thing, 481 S. Federal Highway.  This upscale evening will also feature an unbelievable silent auction and a drawing to win an exclusive luxury 10-day cruise for two!

For the last 15 years Grapes for Grades, has benefited the Hollywood Florida Scholarship Foundation, a 501 (c3) that provides college scholarships to deserving seniors from local Hollywood high schools, raised $386,400 and helped over 400 students! This year we added something new! A portion of the proceeds will also be dedicated to the Broward Education Foundation’s Tools for Schools program, where a school supply store on wheel will be visiting our local Hollywood schools and give our teachers a much needed free shopping opportunity for their classroom and students.

“I want to whole- heartily thank you for sponsoring my education. There are no words to describe what it means to me. Without your generosity, I undoubtedly would not be at my dream school right now. In three years, I will receive my degree and be able to prove that anything is possible through hard work and kindness. Once again, I want to emphasize that the only way this visions is possible is by the support I received from you. It means the world to me” — Hailey, undergrad UF

Grapes for Grades is the ultimate gathering of the community and businesses in support of our local college-bound students and teachers” said Sara Lavenka, 2018 President of the Greater Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and Grapes for Grades co-chair. “Supporting education is critical to ensure that Hollywood has the future work force to support its continued growth.”

We are now accepting silent auction items, restaurant applications and sponsorship donations. So please be generous and support this great event!
