Set sail for an entertaining yacht-themed evening from 6 – 10 p.m. on Saturday, March 9, as The Salvation Army of Broward County presents its inaugural Red Shield Regatta at JM Family’s “The Park” (200 Jim Moran Boulevard in Deerfield Beach). Special guest host Captain Lee Rosbach of Bravo TV’s “Below Deck” and “Couch Talk with Captain Lee & Kate” will be on hand to greet guests as The Salvation Army raises funds to benefit Plymouth Colony, an essential transitional housing complex in Hollywood that provides shelter and supportive services for families facing adversity.

Attendees to The Red Shield Regatta will enjoy gourmet food, an open bar, live entertainment, a silent auction, and the thrilling spectacle of model boat racing. Cruise or resort wear is suggested.

After 10 seasons starring on Bravo’s biggest show, “Below Deck,” Captain Lee Rosbach sailed his way into viewer’s hearts, becoming a beloved fan favorite and household name with over 1.2 million followers. While the ‘stud of the sea’ never even saw the ocean until he moved to the Turks & Caicos at the age of 35, he’s spent the past three decades circling the globe as a mega yacht captain known for his witty one-liners and no nonsense attitude. Whether he’s appearing before Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live” or lawmakers on Capitol Hill, Captain Lee always brings his signature swagger.

The Salvation Army of Broward County engages in year-round critical operations, such as multiple shelters and housing programs to aid those experiencing homelessness; weekly food pantry distributions; daily soup kitchen; annual Angel Tree toy distribution program bringing joy to local families during the holidays, and others. To support these efforts fundraising activities like the seasonal Red Kettle bell ringing campaign and this year’s new Red Shield Regatta offer the community the chance to invest for long-term impact. All funds raised directly assist the most disadvantaged in Broward County.

The Salvation Army of Broward County’s Red Shield Regatta is sponsored by JM Family Enterprises with additional support provided by Bombardier, HMY Yachts, Gulfstream, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, SJF Law Group, Icon International, Sodexo USA, Ocean Bank, MSC Cruises, Cahill Family Charitable Fund and Patrice & John Sabatano.
