From Us, With Love

Booze can’t solve all of life’s problems, but at least the happy hour proceeds will go to Haitian relief efforts at the H.E.L.P. Event from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday at America’s Backyard (200 E. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). God bless the fundraisers where drinking is how to support the cause; your charity donation of ten bucks will get you two free drinks, visits to the open snack buffet, and lots of entertainment. There will be a live DJ — which means dancing — art by Bluehaven Studios, and raffle giveaways (like the $100 gift card donated by Cafe Maxx in Pompano Beach). This H.E.L.P. — which stands for Haitian Extension of Love and Peace — event benefits BurnersWithoutBorders.org and PlantingPeace.org, a local charity run by Aaron Jackson. And to top it all off, America’s Backyard will give patrons a $20 gift card that they can put toward their next visit. Visit thehelpevent.org.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
