Cost: $100 per person

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will honor The Forman Family, Broward County pioneers and early developers, and Fort Lauderdale Commissioner, District #2, Steven Glassman during its History Makers 2019 fundraiser set for Tuesday, April 30, at 6 p.m., at the New River Inn. The event spotlights individuals who have made an impact on the growth of the City of Fort Lauderdale.

For over a century, the Forman family has been major contributors to the development of Fort Lauderdale and Broward County. Ever since Hamilton and Blanche Collins Forman arrived in 1910, they, and their descendants, have played leading roles in the fields of agriculture, business, water management, education, public service and philanthropy. Dr. Charles Forman and his brother Hamilton Forman were Broward’s most powerful political figures from the 1950s to the 1990s. When their pioneer dairy farms and pastures were closed to facilitate the building of Florida’s Turnpike in the mid-1950s, the family turned their attention toward education and building a world-class education complex on their land. Today, the former farmland houses campuses of Florida Atlantic University, Florida International and the University of Florida’s Broward complexes, Nova elementary, middle and high schools, Broward Community College and Nova Southeastern University.

Fort Lauderdale City Commissioner, District #2, Steven Glassman, has been a foremost advocate of historic preservation, arts and culture and philanthropy in Broward County for close to 25 years. For 11 years, Glassman was an administrator for the Broward County Cultural Division where he worked closely with elected officials and business leaders to further the quality of life in all of Broward’s major cities through the arts and culture. This work included serving on advisory boards in Hollywood, Miramar, and Pembroke Pines. He has served on the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Beach Redevelopment Advisory Board (three years) and the Planning and Zoning Board (six years). His many years in various civic leadership positions include president of the Broward Trust for Historic Preservation and a seven-year tenure as the president of the Central Beach Alliance. Steve has also served as president of several beach condominium associations including his current six-year tenure at the Sapphire Condominium. He has remained focused on fixing our city’s infrastructure via smart growth and proactive future planning.

This year’s event will also celebrate the city’s 108th birthday with cocktails, food and drink stations from Ruth’s Chris Steak House, CA Catering, LauderAle, Gran Forno and more to be announced plus themed entertainment on the downtown Fort Lauderdale campus.

History Makers 2019 is sponsored by visionary Merrimac Ventures with trailblazer support from Lochrie & Chakas P.A. and trendetters Robert Golden and Judy Stern.

Tickets for this year’s History Makers Gala are $100 (online service charges not included) and can be purchased online at http://bit.ly/HFLHistoryMakers2019 or via email at info@flhc.org. Seating is limited.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Slow Food Miami presents its “Snail Social” roaming Happy Hour event on Tuesday, February 12, 2019 from 6PM to 8PM hosted by Exquisito Chocolates, Miami’s first chocolate factory.

For February’s Snail Social, Carolina Quijano, owner of Exquisito Chocolates, will take guests on a journey through the factory that will allow them to taste and experience every step of the bean-to-bar process. Bites include fresh roasted cacao, chocolate cold brew, single estate chocolate, their signature Little Guavana truffle made from Redland guava from Snail Social honoree, PG Tropicals, as well as a fresh guava rum punch for sipping. Additionally, attendees will receive 20% off of retail shop items.

This event is open to the public; $10 donation if guests RSVP in advance through Eventbrite and $15 cash at the door. Tickets can be purchased here. Snail Social attendees can enjoy the Happy Hour menu from 6PM to 8PM. First-time student and teacher sponsored tickets are available – those interested can send a message to Slow Food Miami on Facebook or Instagram.

Hurricane Irma served as the major catalyst that spurred Slow Food Miami to turn their monthly gatherings into fundraisers that would connect the community with the obstacles that farmers face, and to support the local farms most in need. The donations go directly to the Slow Food Farm Fund to support local farm operations in times of agricultural need. The team extends their gratitude for helping them keep good, clean fair food on the tables in South Florida.

There will be a Snail Social hosted by different Snail of Approval chefs and restaurants throughout Miami on the second Tuesday of every month. Other participating chefs and restaurants will be announced throughout the season via Slow Food Miami’s mailing list and social media tagged with #snailsocial. Follow Slow Food Miami on Instagram and Facebook to stay current.

Exquisito Chocolates is located at 2606 SW 8th Street. Telephone: 786 558-4580; https://www.exquisitochocolates.com/
