The Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce's Rising Leaders certainly rose to the occasion, as they organized their 1st annual Summer Soiree at the Historic Maxwell Room. The group chose to take guests back to the Roaring 20's for this fun-filled night with food, drinks, entertainment, photo booth, raffles and a silent auction.
More than 150 revelers took part in the inaugural bash that is being coined a "roaring success." The Rising Leaders also managed to put the "fun" in fundraising. Proceeds from the Summer Soiree helped raise money for a Leadership Fort Lauderdale scholarship.
