Broward Meals on Wheels, is pleased to announce its 6th Annual Chocolate Extravaganza event on Saturday, October 20th 7:00-11:00pm, at The Fishing Hall of Fame Museum, Dania Beach. 

 This event is Broward Meals on Wheels’ flagship fundraiser.  The evening kicks off with a special VIP Welcome Reception at 6pm and general admission at 7pm with music and entertainment, savory and dessert food stations and a silent auction.  Guests will be paying $75 for general admission and $125 for VIPs.  Tickets are available online via  There are also special rates for groups. 

This event has grown over time into a much larger and successful fundraiser for our organization.  We are inviting a select few high end restaurants to participate and showcase their best culinary creations.  This year is our first “Who do you know Famous?” contest….and the winner gets $1000 cash.  With all the celebrities moving about in South Florida, tickets are expected to be sold out.

Fundraising is more crucial now than ever before, as we have had to reduce homebound meal services from 7 days to 5 days.  “In any given week, we have seniors going without food 2 days out of the week. So the need is very real and very urgent. $440,000 is the amount needed to resume 7 days service to the seniors currently on our program” said Peggy Miller, Executive Director for Broward Meals on Wheels and Chair of Meals On wheels Association of America. “We are reaching out to all our supporters, new, past and present to support this extraordinary event.”

This year’s goal is to raise $50,000 to help provide these meals for thousands of seniors in need throughout the county. 100% of funds we raise each year go directly into the programs we make available to our senior population.

The past success of this event is credited largely to our sponsors, who lend their names and financial support to the event.   We want to thank those who have signed on for this year’s event thus far:
