The Make A Wish Foundation’s is set for the Fontainebleau Hotel on May 11th and, according to Board Member Danielle Gonzalez, it’s going to be quite the scene.
"It's going to be a family friendly event, we are calling it the 'Retro Splash Bash', because we are channeling old Florida glamour think 1950s and 1960s," said Gonzalez.
As for the 50’s and 60’s retro theme, the Make-A-Wish Foundation is going all out.
"When guests arrive they will immediately be transported to old Florida, and they will stroll along the boardwalk in the Fontaine ballroom. The boardwalk will have tons of games and stations for kids and a retro shop for the adults. They will be strolling through the boardwalk and into the diner themed ballroom to eat different diner themed foods like chicken and waffles and hamburgers and hotdogs," said Gonzalez.
And the fact that it’s a pool party, makes the event pretty rare and pretty special.
"Since this is a family friendly event, we wanted to make sure that it appeals to kids of all ages, and who doesn't want to jump in the pool when they are at the Fountainebleau Hotel," said Gonzalez.
Not only will the event be a blast, it will also benefit a great cause.
"We hope to raise at least 100,000 dollars in net proceeds from this event. That would be enough money to grant at least 20 wishes for kids here in South Florida," said Gonzalez.
